There is a long list of players in NFL history that have signed high-paying deals, only to underperform the moment the ink dries on their new contract.

#10 – Buccaneers WR Vincent Jackson
2014 Base Salary: $10,000,000 (T-2nd highest among Wide Receivers)
Regardless of the inconsistencies at Quarterback, Vincent Jackson (70 receptions, 1002 yards, 2 TDs) was flat-out been outplayed by his rookie counterpart, Mike Evans (68 receptions, 1051 yards, 12 TDs), most noticeably in the TD department. Jackson’s base salary drops slightly to $9,777,777 in 2015, but after trade rumors at the trade deadline it’s more likely the Buccaneers to move him to a contender in the offseason.
