The STRANGEST Trade in New York Jets HISTORY | Boomer Esiason
In 1993, the Cincinnati Bengals traded away QB Boomer Esiason to the New York Jets, with a condition in the contract being that the Bengals receive a second round pick in 1994 if Boomer Esiason has a passer rating of 89. Somehow, entering the final week of the season, he was right on the border, which led to a bizarre scenario where some Jets fans were rooting for Esiason to stink in the finale against the Houston Oilers so that they'd keep their second round pick. This is the story behind this absolutely bizarre trade during the 1993 NFL season
