Today’s Question: The Tennessee Titans traded the No. 1 pick in the upcoming NFL draft to the Los Angeles Rams earlier this week. One of the Rams first blockbuster trades came in 1959 when they had no problems giving up 8 players: Ken Panfil, John Tracey, Frank Fuller, Glenn Holtzman, Art Hauser, Larry Hickman, Don Brown, and a player to be delivered in training camp (two of them were Pro Bowlers), and a Round 2 draft pick (eventually Harold Olson, who made a Pro Bowl) for what five-time Pro Bowl running back from the Chicago Cardinals?
