Top free-agent contracts really haven't played out extremely well for the teams giving up the big dough in recent seasons. Just ask the Philadelphia Eagles and Tampa Bay Buccaneers about their signings over the last couple years.  

By virtue of Nnamdi Asomugha and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie leaving this offseason, the Eagles have no one remaining from the core of their "Dream Team" signings. 

Meanwhile, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers doled out over $140 million to Carl Nicks, Vincent Jackson and Eric Wright last spring. The only player to make a decent impact on that list was Jackson, who still only caught about 49 percent of the passes thrown in his direction (via ESPN). 

The huge deals we saw last week and into this week promise to be no different. 

Was Dashon Goldson worth $41 million over five seasons? What about the ridiculous contract the New England Patriots gave the injury-riddled Danny Amendola? 

Let's take a look at nine free-agent signees that are sure to flop with their new teams.
