Forbes released its list of the most overpaid players in the NFL. Unfortunately for the AFC East, a number of those players are in the division.
Four of Forbes' 10 most-overrated players reside in the AFC East. The list includes two linebackers, one cornerback and a wide receiver.
No. 1: LB David Harris, Jets, $12 million
No. 2: LB Karlos Dansby, Dolphins, $10.7 million
No. 5: WR Santonio Holmes, Jets, $9.25 million
No. 7: CB Antonio Cromartie, Jets, $8.25 million
The fact that three of these four players are with the Jets is not good. Harris, Holmes and Cromartie are solid players, but are they franchise players to build a team around? I don’t think so.
The Jets have a lot of big contracts tied to several players. The team is built to win now. But with stud corner Darrelle Revis out for the season, it will be up to these three high-priced players to step up for New York.
