Most likely FA Busts?
 
What are some players that you think will not work out in their new teams? You can use any criteria you like, such as being a bad player, or simply being average but not living up to mega deals, etc.

Langston Walker, T/G- Buffalo

Its not any scheme problem. He is just a bad player.

Ashley Lelie, WR- San Francisco

He is a one trick pony. I dont expect him on the roster at this time next year.


I also thought of putting Joey Porter, because he needs talent around him, but in miami he will have that talent (thomas, crowder, taylor surrounding him in the LB core) So id expect him to do decent.

Leonard Davis.

only if he plays tackle which he wont, besides none of these guys are ever going to live up to these ridiculously large contracts. So each guy who got a huge contract you could list.

Sveen 03-12-2007 04:58 PM

Langston Walker
Visanthe Shiancoe

Best case scenario they are both average which is not good enough considering the money they are being payed.

bearsfan_51 03-12-2007 04:58 PM

Joey Porter. Leonard Davis.

Even if he does play guard, he's still lazy and out of shape. I could definitely see him failing.

No way, he is playing RG, which means he will dominate. Multiple pro-bowler. Our o-line is set with him and now re-signing Colombo. He won't be lazy in Dallas, he wants to play there. Everyone in arizona sucks, and when they leave they become good, because arizona sucks. Look at Thomas Jones as 1 example.

When Leonard Davis owns, all of us Cowboy fans will throw it in your faces.

Anyway, mine is Nate Clements.

Ahman Green. I think the injuries will catch up to him and he just won't be the same back as he had been.

He was traded. Not a FA signing per se. ;)

Xiomera 03-12-2007 05:03 PM

Any Offensive Lineman that got over 40 million dollars is likely to bust. All these guys got WAY more money then they are worth.

Vikes99ej 03-12-2007 05:04 PM

I can't see how Vinsanthe Shiancoe could be a bust. It's not like we paid him that much money.

BigDawg819 03-12-2007 05:17 PM

Nate Clements

No way he can live up to that contract. $80 million for a corner not named Champ Bailey or Chris McAlister is ludicrious. Clements is a quality corner don't get me wrong but that contract places him as the elite guy and I don't see it happening. He will be matched up twice a year against the likes of Torry Holt, Larry Fitzgerald or Anquan Boldin, and Deion Branch, and while he has the chance to develop into a top caliber guy, he's being paid as one and I feel the pressure of said contract will be too much for him to handle.

Leonard Davis

TNewFan41 03-12-2007 05:21 PM

Leonard Davis is not gonna be a bust, he will probably be the best signing because he is playing GUARD!!!!

But w/e, think what you want, we will just throw it in your face next year when he is in the pro-bowl.

I heard he'll be playing RT.

gbpackers0065 03-12-2007 05:30 PM

Derrick Dockery...........................Let's see how he does without an excellent line around him!

Steinbach deserved it, I felt. He's a stud.

DeathbyStat 03-12-2007 05:32 PM

Dockery and Steinbach I don't think they can live up to their
contracts

I think he should be moved to NT. That way he can do the usual sit down and not give ground (just make the players go around him) and be considered good.

Well you heard WAY wrong. We re-signed Colombo, who was a good RT last season. Davis will be playing RG, and will dominate it.
