Possession of the football is a basic requirement when one wishes to score points in a football match. At least Matt Schaub is being creative while nearly losing said possession.

We’ve all made trades we regret. Sometimes you realize right away, and sometimes you don’t realize at all. But most fantasy fanatics have had at least one forgettable trade.

Well, to comfort you after any botched trades and inspire you to try trading again, I present the five worst trades of all-time made by real general mangers in the NFL. Take solace in the fact that you probably won’t screw up as bad as these GMs who are paid to do this:

4. Buccaneers trade Steve Young to 49ers for LB Winston Moss and WR Bruce Hill

3. Colts trade Marshall Faulk to Rams for LB Mike Peterson and DE Brad Scioli

2. Vikings trade five players and six draft picks for Herschel Walker. Those picks would include Emmitt Smith and Darren Woodson. Walker would play three uninspiring years in Minnesota.
