      The single best player that the Rams ever let get away early in his career. We lost night train after two seasons and he went on to become one of the greatest players at his position in the history of the game. Whats so odd about it is that he was an all pro for the Rams before we let him leave. Its not like he was stuck on the bench behind better players.

        More rams history-the best player the Rams ever let get away
        by general counsel
        Dick Night Train Lane played two seasons for the Rams (1952 and 53). As a rookie, he had 14 int's in 12 games. The Rams traded him to the cardinals and got basically nothing (money issues). Lane was a six time all nfl first team corner, and in the opinion of many, the greatest corner in the history of the game (68 career int's). This was the worst move the rams ever made, bar none.

        Dont say warner. He had deteriorated at the point we let him go. There is no reason to believe he would have been as successful if he stayed with the rams with all their crappy players around him. Van Brocklin was traded at the peak of his career which didnt work out too well either, and of course many will cite the dickerson deal (which might come in second on my list). But trading a way a first ballot HOF'er after two years in an era before free agency and getting essentially nothing for him was an unmitigated disaster.

        Worst release for no compensation at all of a player under contract that i can think of? Madison Hedgecock.

        Rams have lost future HOFers before: which was the most regrettable?
        by AvengerRam
        Aaron Donald is a HOF level talent. If he remains healthy, I certainly would not bet against him ending up in Canton.

        The Rams can't let him leave.

        They've allowed future HOFers to leave before.

        Which one is the most regrettable?

        What criminal has the LEAST chance of ever getting out of jail?
        by Guest
        Who has a better shot at parole? Charles Manson or Sirhan Sirhan.

        To me, these two guys are the two least likely american prisoners to ever see the light of day.
