In 1991, the New York Jets we looking for a quarterback. Unfortunately, they did not have a first-round draft pick.
Fortunately, assistant general manager Ron Wolf had an ace up his sleeve. A quarterback on top of his board was not projected to go in the first round. Hopefully, he could grab him in the second.
Wolf's plan almost worked. One pick before the Jets, the Atlanta Falcons took his desired single-caller. Wolf had to settle for his second choice.
The Jets ended up with Browning Nagle. The less said about his NFL career, the better.
The Falcons got Brett Favre. After he spent his first season as a backup, Atlanta turned around and traded him to the Green Bay Packers, and their new general manager... Ron Wolf.
Wolf turned the Packers in a perennial contender, winning one Super Bowl and setting up for another. Favre broke numerous passing records. Both got elected to the NFL Hall of Fame.
The Jets? They are still looking for that quarterback...
