San Diego Chargers Worst Trade?
There may be other trades that were as bad, but Sid Gillman once dealt Larry Little to the Miami Dolphins for defensive back, Mack Lamb. At the time it may not have seemed such a mistake; Little had not produced much after being signed by the Chargers as a free-agent guard out of Bethune-Cookman in 1967. Looking back now, some 47 years later, one wonders how Gillman made such a blunder.
Little went on to a Hall of Fame career with the Miami Dolphins. Lamb went nowhere. He never appeared in a game with the Chargers, or anyone else. His final professional statistics come as a defensive back of the Miami Dolphins in 1968.
