The Philadelphia Eagles went on a signing rampage this summer and for good reason—the team has a superstar in his prime in Michael Vick, and the team was considered elite and were Super Bowl favorites entering the 2011 NFL playoffs.
And while most of these signings were great (which includes Nnamdi Asomugha and Cullen Jenkins), others weren't so great.
The worst free agent signing? Former Miami Dolphins RB Ronnie Brown, who's 28, injury prone and hasn't produced big numbers for the Dolphins since 2008, the first year the 'Fins used the Wildcat formation.
Brown has had his setbacks, but his vision has never really developed at the level you'd like to see from a 28-year-old back. He's not that great at reading the shifting in the offensive line, and while he's a big, fast running back, he'll often run straight into the arms of waiting linebackers. The Dolphins didn't re-sign him for a reason.
The Eagles won't use Brown as a feature back—that's what they have LeSean McCoy for—but he might not be worth signing as a second option at RB. His stats largely benefited from an underrated Dolphins offensive line and the presence of Ricky Williams (which, ironically, should hurt his stats).
