8. Keyshawn Johnson Trade (March 2004)
Bill Parcells did his best to make the Dallas Cowboys a “Big Tuna Reunion.” The only player missing was Lawrence Taylor.
The Cowboys risked a first and seventh-round pick in 2000 to acquire Joey Galloway from the Seahawks and got minimal returns. Galloway only caught 151 passes and 12 touchdowns during his four seasons in Dallas.
Galloway was traded away to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in March 2004 for Keyshawn Johnson. Bill Parcells had coached Johnson during his tenure with the New York Jets from 1997 to 1999.
During his first year in Dallas, Johnson reunited with his former teammate Vinny Testeverde. The two developed a good chemistry with each other in 2004.
Keyshawn put in two solid seasons with the Dallas Cowboys. He caught 70 passes and six touchdowns in both 2004 and 2005.
Keyshawn Johnson’s career highlights will rarely be shown from his days as a Cowboy, but his positive output is a testament to the Parcells years.
