Whether it’s overpriced free agents who fail to live up to the billing or journeyman veterans being asked to do too much, plenty of players will disappoint in 2015. Here’s the six who top our list:
6. cheap Jeremy Maclin jersey, Chiefs jerseys receiver
After setting career highs with 85 catches and 1,318 receiving yards last season, Maclin shifts from Chip Kelly’s high flying attack to Kansas City. He’ll struggle to repeat that production against a steady diet of top corners and double teams in 2015. Chiefs jerseys tight end cheap Travis Kelce jersey will generate attention, but opponents aren’t going to move off Maclin for the rest of that wideout group.
5. Matt Cassel, Bills jerseys quarterback
To be fair, we weren’t expecting much from cheap authentic nfl jerseys Cassel to begin with. Still, he was seen as the presumptive Week 1 starter after the Bills jerseys swung a trade for him in March. Today, he’s a roster bubble candidate after Vic Carucci of The Buffalo News called him “easily the worst looking quarterback” during offseason workouts. We’ll see Cassel, cheap Tyrod Taylor jersey and the headache inducing cheap EJ Manuel jersey all start games in 2015 not a winning formula in the NFL.
4. cheap Byron Maxwell jersey, Eagles jerseys cornerback
Maxwell was outstanding in Seattle, but he won’t have the luxury of playing with cheap Richard Sherman jersey, cheap Earl Thomas jersey and cheap Kam Chancellor jersey in Philly. Being paid like a bona fide No. 1 corner, Maxwell is under pressure to prove that he can thrive away from the Legion of Boom. I love his size and technique and he’s an upgrade over Cary Williams and Bradley Fletcher but it’s fair to wonder how he’ll handle cheap Odell Beckham jersey, cheap DeSean Jackson jersey and cheap Dez Bryant jersey in the NFC East.
3. cheap Darren McFadden jersey, Cowboys jerseys running back
This is the best fit for McFadden since play caller Hue Jackson milked 1,000 plus yards out of the ex Raiders jerseys runner in 2010. He’s a strong bet to top last year’s putrid output, but McFadden’s sub 3.5 yards per tote over the past three seasons are no mirage. Topping 155 carries just twice in his injury riddled career, McFadden is being touted by some as a bell cow in waiting. I side with Gregg “The Boss” Rosenthal to argue that Joseph Randle will emerge as the far better option.
2. cheap Josh McCown jersey, Browns jerseys quarterback
McCown has averaged just 4.1 starts per season over his 12 year career. I don’t buy him as a 16 game workhorse in his age 36 campaign. McCown’s a leader, but the Browns jerseys are in a risky spot, hoping to top last year’s 7 9 mark with an aging project under center. Besides, the front office will want to take another look at cheap Johnny Manziel jersey if things go south. Either way, Cleveland is ripe to draft another passer next spring.
1. cheap Nick Foles jersey, Rams jerseys quarterback
I’m tempted to put cheap Sam Bradford jersey on this list, but I agree with Chris Wesseling: He’s a better fit for Comeback Player of the Year in Chip Kelly’s offense. Foles is here because of what we haven’t seen in St. Louis under Jeff Fisher: A competent offense. The Rams jerseys will run the ball plenty with cheap Todd Gurley jersey and cheap Tre Mason jersey, but Foles will be asked to make his share of plays through the air to one of the league’s most uninspiring group of wideouts. He was a statistical revelation two years ago, but Foles no longer operates inside a quarterback proof offense.
