Bottom line: Eric Metcalf led the NFL in kickoff returns in his second season and led the league in punt return touchdowns four different times.
Metcalf finished his career in the top 10 in NFL history in all-purpose yards and is still third in career return touchdowns with 12, just behind Brian Mitchell and Devin Hester.
The Chargers traded Metcalf, plus a first-round pick and a second-round pick, to the Cardinals so they could move up one spot in the 1998 NFL draft and take Ryan Leaf. Bad move.
