Washington was one of the Chiefs' 1972 draft picks. He was later traded to the Oilers (or released by the Chiefs?) in time to play in Houston's 1973 season-opener.

Anyone know the exact date (or, at least the month) when he was traded and/or let go by the Chiefs? Did Washington play any preseason games for KC? I'm inquiring to help narrow down the date of a KC Chiefs autographed football.

Thanks in advance

The Chiefs took Washington with the 439th(17thd-23rdpick) pick in the 1972 draft.

The 1972 draft was held Feb 1-2, 1972.

The regular season started on Sept 17, 1972.

So the trade would have taken place during that time.
