The Sun Remembers Aug. 18-24
Aug. 23, 1978: In a swap of running backs, the Baltimore Colts send holdout Lydell Mitchell, their career rushing leader, to the San Diego Chargers for oft-injured Joe Washington. In his three seasons here, Washington will gain nearly 4,000 combined rushing and receiving yards, lead the NFL with 82 receptions in 1979 and make the Pro Bowl.
