    Trades 101:

    On March 7, 1967, quarterback Fran Tarkenton was traded to the New York Giants for a 1st and 2nd-round choice in 1967, a 1st-round choice in '68 and a 2nd-round choice in '69. With the picks Minnesota selected Clinton Jones and Bob Grim in '67, Ron Yary in '68 and Ed White in '69.

    In 1972 the Vikings traded Norm Snead, Bob Grim, Vince Clements and a 1st-round choice in '72 and '73 to the New York Giants to reacquire the popular Tarkenton.

    HOW COME WE DON'T GET THOSE KIND OF RETURNS NOWADAYS???

    RESURRECT JIM FINKS!!!

    AND SHOOT MIKE LYNN!!!
    BANNED OR DEAD...I'LL TAKE EITHER ONE

    Free Agency is the reason, now you can just sign players to help at certain positions at the end of the season.

    Back then the only choices were to draft players, or to trade for a player. It took 3 to 4 year to develop most players, if your team was close and thought you could make a run at the championship by adding a player or two and that would put you over the hump you traded. The team that had the player desired could get what they wanted for the player because they had the limited commodity, so they could get a lot more for players back then. Now you can just wait until the end of the season, and get all the players you can afford.
