When an NFL team has a major need, it is willing to spend some cash to have that need fixed in free agency. However, some teams will unfortunately pay way too much, making the free agent grossly overpaid.
The perfect example of this is Albert Haynesworth and the Washington Redskins. Haynesworth was coming off a huge season for the Tennessee Titans, the Redskins had a need in their interior defensive line and the result was a seven-year, $100 million contract.
We all know exactly how well that worked out for Washington.
While we may not see a player as grossly overpaid as Haynesworth, we'll still see a handful of players get more than they're worth. Let's take a look at the NFL players who'll be grossly overpaid in free agency.
