sports-trivia-nfl-tradesWith the craziness of the recent Trent Richardson trade to the Colts, lets do some NFL trade trivia. Each answer will consist of a player that has been traded in the last 25 years. Answers will be the team that traded the player. Get ready to laugh. Makes me think anyone can be an NFL GM at some point in their lives. See Jerry Jones.

Part 1

What team traded him? (each question is worth two points)

  1. Wes Welker traded to New England Patriots.
  2. Deion Branch traded to Seattle.
  3. Drew Bledsoe traded to Buffalo Bills.
  4. Marshall Faulk traded to St. Louis.
  5. No.2 pick in 1998 traded to San Diego Chargers.
  6. Roy Williams traded to Dallas.
  7. Coach Bill Belichick traded to New England Patriots.
  8. Santonio Holmes traded to the New York Jets.
  9. Steve Young traded to the San Francisco 49ers.
  10. Jerome Bettis traded to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Part 2

For the five remaining questions, which player was drafted? (each question is worth 1 point)

  1. The New Orleans Saints gave up 8 picks for this Texas RB.
  2. The Indianapolis Colts gave up 4 players for this Fighting Illini QB.
  3. Drafted by Seattle, the Cowboys gave up 4 picks to grab this Pitt RB.
  4. Pulled a draft day hissy fit and claimed he would not play for the San Diego Chargers, forcing the New York Giants to trade away 3 picks to get him.
  5. The Arizona Cardinals traded this great blocking wide receiver to the Baltimore Ravens for three picks.

Don’t you dare check out the awesome answers without seeing this Wes Welker highlight reel. Makes you wonder how good Belichick’s eye for talent is. As awesome as a Patrick Kane stick handling video while sporting a mullet.
