10. Carson Palmer, QB, Oakland Raiders (four years, $43 million)
: The problem isnít necessarily the salary. Starting quarterbacks make $10 million-plus. The problem is trading away first- and second-round picks to get him. Palmer has been average at best. He has 26 touchdown passes and 24 interceptions for the Raiders. Former coach Hue Jackson thought Palmer would put the Raiders over the top after some 8-8 seasons. He's been 6-11 as Oakland's starter.
