The NFL may have a salary cap, but it has no limit on dunderheadedness. Whether out of desperation or lack of vision or just plain old ignorance, decision-makers are capable of momentous mistakes, the ramifications of which can be felt for years.
The absolute worst player contracts in the salary-cap era span many teams. We aren't considering those who underperformed because of health issues. So Shaun Alexander, LeCharles Bentley, Daunte Culpepper, David Givens, Jerick McKinnon and Javon Walker are off the hook.
Also, duds such as Ryan Leaf and JaMarcus Russell will be spared another public flogging. They had bad contracts because they were bad draft picks.
Please hold your boos until the end.
