Michael Vick, Philadelphia Eagles
Long before the news that Michael Vick was in talks with Atlanta to sign a one-day contract in order to officially retire as a Falcon, the quarterback signed two fat contracts that wound up burning both the Falcons, and later the Eagles. In Atlanta, Vick made headlines with what was supposed to be a ten year, 130 million dollar deal that, despite his skill on the field, fizzled when the QB was imprisoned for 23 months for that whole dogfighting mess. After his release from the slammer, Philadelphia snapped up Vick in 2009 with high hopes he’d triumph in the City of Brotherly Love and guaranteeing a cool 40 million bucks. Instead, Vick failed to live up to expectations and he departed for the Jets in 2014.
