June 5, 1984

The supplemental draft gave NFL teams the league rights to the players who had been eligible to be drafted but weren’t because they were under contract with teams in the United States Football League or the Canadian Football League.

Reggie White was one of the game's greatest defensive ends who held the all-time sack record until broken by Bruce Smith. Gary Zimmerman was selected by the Giants but traded to the Vikings.  A five-time All-Pro, he split his career between Minnesota and the Denver Broncos. Mel Gray accumulated more than 13,000 yards in punt and kickoff returns with New Orleans, Detroit, Houston/ Tennessee, and Philadelphia.
