Cowboys Top 10

Charles Haley was acquired from San Francisco just before the 1992 season.

In May of 1973, the Cowboys sent defensive lineman Tody Smith and wide receiver Billy Parks - neither of whom ever made a Pro Bowl - to Houston in exchange for the Oilers' No. 1 and No. 3 picks in the '74 draft. Those selections would turn into defensive end Ed "Too Tall" Jones (No. 1 overall) and future franchise quarterback Danny White (No. 53 overall).

Due to personal differences with coach George Seifert, the 49ers traded Haley, already a three-time Pro-Bowler, to the Cowboys on Aug. 26, 1992, getting back a '93 second-rounder and '94 third-rounder. Haley would make two Pro Bowls as a Cowboy, and prove to be the difference-maker in their overtaking the 49ers for NFC supremacy.
