FOXSports.com has come out with their list of the top 10 most overpaid NFL players and guess who's on the list...â†µ
It made sense for former Pats exec Scott Pioli to bring Matt Cassel to Kansas City, but the price was steep, another $15 million this year. Cassel, who played well after Tom Brady tore his knee in '08, collected big bucks because the Pats had to franchise him to find a trading partner. No one is sure whom to blame in K.C., either -- a shaky WR corps, a young head coach (Todd Haley) who forever changed game plans or Cassel -- for 26 offensive TDs in '09.â†µ
Eh, maybe for the 2010 season Chiefs QB Matt Cassel's overpaid but that's just because how his contract works out. His $10 million per-year average ranks between 10-15 for starting quarterbacks and much of the money is front-loaded. It's no coincidence he's receiving this much money in an uncapped year. It's a strategic move for the Chiefs to create more room down the road.â†µ
I don't really have a problem with his contract. He's reportedly due a $7.5 million bonus in March of 2011 so this year could be very interesting for him.
