In this era of long-term Sheldrick Redwine Jersey
, big-money contracts, teams in the National Football League are prone to making expensive mistakes when signing free agents—and no team is immune to it. for a team to catch a bad apple before signing him, but for whatever reason the NFL squad just simply missed the mark.

, however that doesn't make it any less painful.Paying any player an obscene amount and getting absolutely nothing in return can set a franchise back for years. Some of the biggest contracts can hamper a team financially for years, leaving it short in several other important positions that can't be improved because there is too much money tied up in what can ultimately be a useless player.Signing the wrong player can have a systemic impact throughout the organization, from the front office right down to the locker room.
