It is still relatively early in the 2014 NFL offseason, but we have already seen a number of important decisions around the league.
Seven teams—the Cleveland Browns, Minnesota Vikings, Detroit Lions, Washington Redskins, Tennessee Titans, Houston Texans and Tampa Bay Buccaneers—have hired new head coaches. The Browns even took things a step further and fired the men that picked their newest head coach.
With free agency and the draft right around the corner, we are guaranteed to see a bevy of new and important decisions—some of which may significantly alter the future of a franchise or two.
Will any of these important choices go down as truly bad ones? That's for history (and of course the disappointed football fan) to decide, but chances are good that at least a few of them will.
This is because NFL history is full of offseason decisions that didn't exactly work out.
With this in mind, now seems like an appropriate time to explore some of the worst offseason decisions in league history.
Our list may include draft selections, trades, roster moves or coaching choices, but they all have one thing in common: The decisions resulted in undesirable results for the groups who made them.
