Obviously "Oops" didn't make it past Shula as he was playing for the Chiefs in 1970. His lack of football skills earned him the name of "Oops".

WR Jim Hines (1969)

Jim Hines, anchor for the United States team in the 4x100-meter relay, is seen crossing the Olympic finish line to set a world record of 38.2 seconds in Mexico City on Oct. 20, 1968. Behind him is Enrique Figuerola of Cuba.

Forget the claims and counter claims, because Hines has the one thing on his resume — and around his neck — to end all arguments. He was the 100-meter gold medalist in the 1968 Olympics, thus earning the title of fastest man in the world. He ran a 9.95 to become the first man to break 10 seconds with electronic timing and the only NFL player to have accomplished that. So why is he the answer to a trivia question? After being selected in the sixth round out of Texas Southern, Hines’ Dolphins career consisted of nine games with one start and two receptions for 23 yards. The one thing he caught was grief. He had the most unfortunate nickname of “Oops.”

He probably earned more cash catching 2 passes for the Fins and being the worst player on the roster than the Olympic Committee gave him for being the best in the globe.
