NFL Free Agents 2012: Vincent Jackson and 6 Most Overrated Players

The 2012 NFL offseason is here and the free agency period is coming quickly.

Every year, teams overpay for an overrated NFL superstar that seems to get a big pay day and immediately stops playing the game. Other times, a team pays high dollar for a top-quality player only to see him struggle in their system.

This happens to a lot of free agents. Guys will play very well in one system and then get plugged into another only to see themselves struggle.

Other teams will sign an older veteran and expect him to play the same way for their team only to watch his production dip and see him retire a year later.

Teams will even sign away players that have very limited experience in the league and expect him to be an All-Pro in his first year as a starter, but again, he struggles in a different system.
