View Full Version : Football Worst NFL contracts

Worst NFL contracts: No running from CJ2K

1. Chris Johnson, RB, Tennessee Titans (six years, $80.96 million):This might be tough to justify after Johnson's 195-yard effort against Buffalo, but the Bills' defense has been making a lot of money for opposing players. Before Sunday's game, Johnson averaged 50.2 yards over the first six weeks. But in the first year of Johnson's contract, CJ2K was CJ1K, rushing for 1,047 yards and averaging a modest 4.0 yards per carry. Johnson's salary goes from $8 million to $10 million next year. The Titans view the contract as a four-year, $56 million extension, but in a quarterback-driven league, it's tough to pay a running back like a quarterback unless he's among the league leaders.

2. Michael Vick, QB, Philadelphia Eagles (six years, $100 million): The Eagles are coming off a bye week in which Andy Reid fired defensive coordinator Juan Castillo, and he is evaluating every position. Vick is the quarterback for now, but after the so-called "Dream Team" didn't make the playoffs last season, the 3-3 start has everything under review. Reid could be in trouble if the Eagles don't make the playoffs, and that would affect Vick. He has $47.5 million coming to him in 2013-15, but the Eagles might try to get out of the deal if Reid is gone.

3. Mark Sanchez, QB, New York Jets (three years, $40.4 million): The Jets aren't "Tebowing" about this contract. Four years into his career, Sanchez is at a career-low 53.2 completion percentage and Rex Ryan has to explain weekly why he doesn't replace Sanchez with Tim Tebow. Though he was part of an AFC Championship Game participant his first two seasons, Sanchez's performance has declined with the shrinking offensive talent around him. The problem is twofold. The Jets are more than $7 million over next year's cap, and Sanchez has a $10 million guarantee in 2013. It would be hard to get rid of him.

4. Kevin Kolb, QB, Arizona Cardinals (six years, $62.1 million): The Cardinals felt so good about this deal that they stalked Peyton Manning with the idea of upgrading at quarterback. Kolb has looked no better than a backup. He's battled enough injuries that players question his toughness. John Skelton beat out Kolb for the starting job, and even though Kolb was 3-2 filling in for him, Skelton seems to be the better option for the Cardinals.

5. Matt Cassel, QB, Kansas City Chiefs (six years, $58 million): A good portion of the Kansas City crowd cheered when Cassel suffered a concussion. Cassel has recovered, but he has lost his job to Brady Quinn. This is Cassel's fourth and, most likely, last season in Kansas City. His salaries go to $7.5 million and $9 million in the final two years of his contract, but he's never completed better than 59.5 percent of his passes for better than 6.9 yards an attempt.

6. DeAngelo Williams, RB, Carolina Panthers (five years, $43 million): The coaching staff thought so much of the $8.6 million-a-year running back that he was on the field for five plays Sunday against Dallas even though he's healthy. He has 50 carries for 177 yards, which puts him on pace for a 472-yard season. The Panthers have sizable investments in two other running backs, Jonathan Stewart at $36.5 million for five years and Mike Tolbert at $10 million for four years. Oh, and by the way, Williams turns 30 next April, making him a target for release.

7. Tyson Jackson, DE, Kansas City Chiefs (five years, $56.2 million): Scott Pioli drafted Jackson with the third pick of the 2009 draft to be a mainstay in the Chiefsí 3-4 defense. The problem is that Jackson and Glenn Dorsey come off the field when opponents go to three- and four-receiver sets. In only one game this season has Jackson been on the field for more than 40 plays. He has two sacks and 139 tackles in four seasons and his salary goes to $14.72 million next year, the final year of his contract.

8. Will Smith, DE, New Orleans Saints (six years, $60.8 million): Smith had 13 sacks in 2009, one year after signing this extension, but he's had only 14 since. The Saints struggle to pressure the quarterback. Smith is 31. He might have to restructure his deal after the season because the Saints are close to $17 million over the 2013 cap.

9. Doug Free, RT, Dallas Cowboys (six years, $48 million): Jerry Jones thought he got a steal when the Cowboys signed Free, then a left tackle, to this contract last year. The coaching staff moved him to right tackle this season, and he's struggled in the transition. Free and left tackle Tyron Smith have been among the league leaders in penalties this season, making things tough on quarterback Tony Romo.

10. Carson Palmer, QB, Oakland Raiders (four years, $43 million): The problem isnít necessarily the salary. Starting quarterbacks make $10 million-plus. The problem is trading away first- and second-round picks to get him. Palmer has been average at best. He has 20 touchdown passes and 20 interceptions for the Raiders. Former coach Hue Jackson thought Palmer would put the Raiders over the top after some 8-8 seasons. He's been 6-10 as Oakland's starter.

That was the standard salary for Jackson's slot. Problem is that he and Dorsey are invisible on passing plays, which are happening increasingly against our base defense.

No.

Tyson Jacksons contract was restructured last year. It's NOT the original slotted deal anymore.

It's completely Piolis fail, doubled.

Someone needs to put a good portion of their boot in that little weasel's arse for perpetuating the myth. That said, having two players in this category should be a badge of shame for the GM. And Clark SHOULD be pissed.

You guys would be better off with Kolb and it only would have cost an extra 4.1 million.

BTW - I've thought, for years, that one of the dumbest moves the Chiefs made was going to a 3-4 and drafting Jackson that high when you guys had what would have made for a hell of a 4-3 front already in place.

The Jackson contract should be higher on the list IMO. Pioli and friends thought he was the next Seymour.LMAO

How is Ryan Leaf not on there Contract: 4 Years, $31.25 Million

I get the amounts not high but they got NOTHING in return


Chiefs 23
Chargers 7
Chargers QB Ryan Leaf finished with more turnovers (5) than passing yards (4) and did not pass for a single first down

A good memory

And Poe's the next Wilfork.
D. Wylie's the next Wes Welker
Mike Castle is the next Tom Brady.


Can we please get a GM & HC that aren't constantly comparing their current gig to an old one. I get so sick of it. Make new memories/stars with what you have.

Gotta admit, Carl & Germ built the core of this team.
Who has Egoli struck gold with?
Houston & dare I say Suck-up? Unfortunately Berry's been very average this year.
We knew what we had in Bowe the 1st year, still don't know if Baldwin's gonna break out or just be so so. Moeaki flashed last year.

The last GM & HC didn't have a franchise QB either. I just don't get it, what's it gonna take?

If I, as a Charger, fan , were to be the GM of the Chiefs, I would have done nothing different than what Pioli has done so far.
Actually, Pioli's been a bit cruel. I might have added 1 player you could root for.

Ahhh there is that..thank you for pointing that out so eloquently.

I guess when I think of busts or let downs Leaf just jumps out at me as one of the all times even if it is some what recent.
