Best Of / Worst of 70’s Best trades

 

Here we go on the second installment of Best of / Worst of. Since we have already looked at the Worst trades of the 70s, this poll will be looking at some of the better Trades during the 1970s. We had 2 pretty decent trades in 1969, so I’m going to throw those in there also to mull over.

1.       Trade #1 – LB John Bramlett, QB Kim Hammond and 5th round pick in 1970 to Boston for LB Nick Buoniconti. Solidified the defense in the middle and part of the 72 team. HOF

2.       Trade #2 – CB Mack Lamb to San Diego for G Larry Little. Jim Langer(C) and Larry Little(G), you couldnt get any better than this combo. HOF

3.       Trade #3 - 1970 First round pick to Cleveland for Paul Warfield. HOF, but left the Dolphins for the WFL with Csonka and Kiick.

4.       Trade #4 -  1971 2nd round pick for Bob Matheson. 53 defense was basically named because of him. Played for Miami for 9 years

5.       Trade #5 -  1973 QB Jim Del Gaizo to Green Bay for 2nd round picks in 1974 and 1975, we ended up with Andre Tillman(TE) in ’74 and Freddie Solomon in ‘75.

6.       Trade #6 - 1978 S Vern Roberson, WR Freddie Solomon and 1st and 5th round picks in 1978 to San Francisco for RB Delvin Williams. This was my hardest choice because this one could also be on the worst list also, depending on how you look at it. Williams played for Miami for 3 years. His first year he played great (1200+ yds) his last 2 years were mediocre.  SF didn’t get too much out their picks, but Freddie had a decent career.
