12. Adam Archuleta, Washington Redskins
Contract: Seven years, $35 million, $10 million guaranteed
This one is just mind-blowing. The highest paid safety in NFL history when he signed the contract, Archuleta ended up starting seven games before being relegated to special teams duty. He was traded to the Bears for a sixth round pick after one season. —Johnny Goodtimes (AP Photo/Gerald Herbert)
