As free agency officially opened in the NFL on Tuesday at 4 pm et., TSN.ca presents the top ten free-agent busts of all-time in the league. 10. RB Ahman Green – Houston Texans What they saw: Green was coming off a 1,000 yard season, his sixth in seven years, entered free agency in 2007. He showed terrific downhill running ability playing with Brett Favre and the Green Bay Packers. What They Got: Needing a feature running back, the Texans handed Green a four-year $23 million contract. Plagued by injuries Green had just 260 rushing yards in his first season with the Texans and 294 in his second. He was cut after two seasons with the team. 9. CB Larry Brown – Oakland Raiders What they saw: Brown and the Dallas Cowboys defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers 27-17 in Super Bowl XXX. Brown had two interceptions for the Cowboys and was the first corner ever to be named Super Bowl MVP. What they got: After the Super Bowl, Brown hit the open market and was given a five-year $12 million deal from the Raiders. Brown was released after just two seasons with the team, he had just one interception in 12 games. 8. WR David Boston – San Diego Chargers What they saw: Boston missed half of the 2002 season, but had posted a 1,500 yard season in 2001, which was enough to create a market for him in free-agency. What they got: The Chargers signed Boston to a seven-year $47 million contract in 2003. In his first season with the team he caught 70 balls for 880 yards and seven touchdowns. Despite decent production, Boston clashed with his coaching staff and traded to Miami prior to the 2004 season. He lasted two seasons with the Dolphins. 7. CB/KR Deion Sanders – Washington Redskins What they saw: One of the most exciting players in football. Primetime was a shutdown corner and ace kick/ punt returner with the Cowboys, he even spent time at wide receiver. Sanders Dallas highlight reel is as diverse as any player of you will ever see. What they got: The Redskins signed Sanders to a seven- year $56 million contract with an $8 million signing bonus in 2000. What they got was the 33-year-old version Sanders, who was a shell of his former electric self. Sanders had four interceptions on defence and no return touchdowns in 16 games. After the season Primetime announced his retirement (he would later return in 2004 with the Baltimore Ravens, but thats a different story). 6. QB Neil ODonnell - New York Jets What they saw: ODonnell appeared to be a solid starter with the Steelers, he posted 37-16 record in his previous four seasons and 17 touchdowns to seven interceptions in his final season with the club. What they got: The Jets released Boomer Esiason after the 1995 season and went after their next franchise quarterback, ODonnell. They signed him to a five-year $25 million deal. Things didnt go well for ODonnell in his first season with the Jets, he went 0-6 with four touchdowns and seven interceptions. He went 8-6 the next season with 17 touchdowns and seven picks, however the Jets decided he wasnt their man and cut him after just two years. 5. WR Javon Walker – Oakland Raiders What they saw: A wide receiver, who, when healthy, could create mismatches and get deep for their divisional rival, Denver Broncos. What they got: The Raiders believed signing Walker to a six-year $55 million contract in 2008 was a win-win; he boosted their passing attack and weakened the Broncos. Walker, however didnt add much to their passing attack, appearing in eight games Walker caught 15 passes for 196 yards and one touchdown. Walker appeared in just three games for the Raiders in the following season, catching no passes. He was released after that abysmal season. 4. WR Andre Rison - Cleveland Browns What they saw: Rison entered free agency with 5,633 receiving yards and 56 touchdowns in his last five seasons, he was seen a proven receiver. What they got: “Bad moon” Rison, one of the greatest nicknames of all-time, which, apparently, was worth $17 million over five years. Rison had just 47 catches for 701 yards in first season and the relocating-Browns released the wide receiver. He registered a 1,000 yard season just once in his final five NFL seasons. 3. QB Jake Delhomme - Carolina Panthers/ Cleveland Browns What the Panthers saw: In 2008, Delhomme went 12-4 with 15 touchdowns and 12 interceptions in the regular season. However, Delhomme had a brutal playoff performance against the Arizona Cardinals, when he threw five interceptions and just one touchdown as the Panthers were blown out 33-13. What they got: Despite not being a free-agent, the Panthers were sure Delhomme was their man and decided to prove it with a five-year $42 million contract with $20 million guaranteed. Unfortunately the Delhomme the Panthers saw in the playoffs was there to stay. He threw eight touchdowns and 18 interceptions in 11 games in 2009, he was benched and eventually released after the season. Browns tenure: Despite seeing Delhommes struggles in Carolina, the Browns decided to sign the quarterback in free agency in 2010. The Browns signed Delhomme to a two-year deal, worth $7 million in his first season. In that season, Delhomme battled an ankle injury and went 2-2 appearing in just five games. He threw two touchdowns and seven interceptions that season. Once the season was finished the Browns cut Delhomme. Between the money owed to him by the Panthers and money made from the Browns, Delhomme made $19.7 million in 2010. 2. S Adam Archuleta – Washington Redskins What they saw: Archuleta was coming off five seasons as a starter with the St. Louis Rams where he had 13 sacks, three interceptions and 304 tackles. What they got: The Redskins signed Archuleta to a seven-year $35 million contract with $10 million guaranteed in 2006, he instantly became the highest paid safety in the NFL. Unfortunately for the Redskins, Archuleta was not the playmaker they had hoped for. He only started seven games for the Redskins in 2006, not because he wasnt healthy, because he benched. After the season the Redskins traded him for a sixth-round pick and, an agreement to restructure his contract. 1. DT Albert Haynesworth – Washington Redskins What they saw: Haynesworth was one of the most dominant defenders in the NFL when he hit free agency in 2009. He was coming off two straight All-Pro team selections and was due for a monster deal. What they got: He got that deal from the Redskins. Haynesworth signed a seven-year $100 million contract with $41 million guaranteed. Haynesworth was a major disappointment in his first season, he registered just four sacks and was suspended by the team for the final month of the season. In 2010, Haynesworth showed up to training camp out of shape played in just eight games, starting none. He registered a career-low 13 tackles and just 2.5 sacks. After the season the Redskins traded Haynesworth to the New England Patriots for a fifth-round pick. The Patriots waived him during the season. After his time with the Redskins, head coach Mike Shannahan said Haynesworth was "lazy, lacking character and lacking passion." D.J. Humphries Cardinals Jersey .

This time the Nationals held on — barely. Drew Storen allowed two runs before securing the final out for his first save since August 2013, and Washington averted a series sweep by snapping Miamis six-game winning streak with a 4-3 victory Wednesday. "Its not always going to be pretty," Storen said. "Its about getting it done. Thats all that matters." Manager Matt Williams decided to rest closer Rafael Soriano, who hasnt pitched since he blew a three-run ninth-inning lead in Washingtons loss Monday. That left Storen to try to finish off the Marlins, who had won nine of their past 10 games to rejoin the playoff race. "Thats a good team over there," the Nationals Ian Desmond said. "In the dugout going out for the bottom of the ninth we were telling each other, Hey, weve got to focus and finish this thing out. For a while weve seen the Marlins getting better. This series was evidence of that. That bottom of the ninth was evidence of that." NL RBI leader Giancarlo Stanton led off the ninth with his 24th homer, and Adeiny Hechavarria doubled home a run. Storen retired Reid Johnson on a forceout with two on for the final out. "I was happy to see us come back and put some pressure on them," Stanton said. "I really envisioned us tying that game up." Tanner Roark (11-6), who allowed one run in seven innings, won his fourth start in a row for the first-place Nationals. "Were pushing toward winning the NL East," Roark said. "Its fun to watch this team, especially when you have four days off and youre watching from the dugout." How did Roark feel watching the bottom of the ninth? "A little nervous," he said with a smile, "but we knew Drew had it on lockdown.dddddddddddd" Soriano will be available Thursday when Washington plays host to Philadelphia, Williams said. Jayson Werth, back in the lineup after missing one start because of a sore right ankle, put the Nationals ahead to stay with a sacrifice fly in their three-run eighth. Desmond added a two-out, two-run double off A.J. Ramos. Brad Hand (2-3) allowed three runs in seven-plus innings. ON DECK The Nationals begin an eight-game homestand and a four-game series against the Phillies on Thursday, when Gio Gonzalez is scheduled to start against Cliff Lee. Miami opens a four-game home series against Cincinnati on Thursday when Tom Koehler pitches against Johnny Cueto. Koehler is 4-3 with a 2.75 ERA at home this year, and 3-4 with a 4.96 ERA on the road. WORKING THE PHONES With Thursdays trade deadline looming, the Marlins and Nationals are both looking for an upgrade. Thats a change for the Marlins thanks to the recent surge that put them back in the playoff picture. Theyre seeking a starting pitcher, presidential of baseball operations Mike Hill said. "Ten days ago people may have thought we were sellers, and they were coming at us one way. Now its completely 180," Hill said. "Were going to do our best to try to upgrade, but were not going to be foolish. Were not going to be shortsighted." The Nationals are also potential buyers. "Do we want to have somebody thats going to make an impact? Sure," Williams said. "That may not be available. There are some guys were taking a hard look at." MARLINS MOVE Before the game, Marlins infielder Ed Lucas was recalled from Triple-A New Orleans. He had been sent down July 20. "I must be a pretty bad teammate if as soon as Im gone they rattle off nine out of 10," Lucas said with a chuckle. "It kind of makes you question yourself a little bit." cheap jerseys wholesale jerseys wholesale jerseys cheap nfl jerseys cheap jerseys Danny Rose Jersey ' ' '
