I think the better question is, "Is Kareem Jackson overpaid?"

Yeah, now it's more like 2011 players who are overpaid. Maybe they are re-doing the 2012 list after realizing they didn't do their homework.

Whoever picked Joseph for the list did so without any context.
Their reasoning makes 0 sense.

The contract that we paid him he has lived up to it so far.

They are talking about his total injury history, which is not relevant to whether or not he is currently overpaid.

He's earned his contract with us..

No. A shut down corner averaging a bit over $6m first two years and escalating to only $8.5m in 5th year (2015) is one of the better contracts in the NFL. Relatively small bonus and guarantee also.

Owen Daniels is on there now.

I'm not even considering anything they say until I see Mario on there, but I did see Dunta Robinson and agree with it.

They might as well just make the list a LOT bigger and include every player in the NFL. Then, I might agree with it.

J-Jo's the man. He's one of the top corners in the league, which allows Wade to confidently blitz his LBs. Joseph's vital to our defense. So no, he's not overpaid.

I'd go as far as to say he's one of the most underpaid players in the league.(that isn't on rookie scale.)

Hell, to the no! He came as advertised, but his value to this team is grossly underrated for those not in the know. Best acquisition ever for this organization, and the type of transaction that a GM points to on his profile.

There are only a few true Cornerbacks who make more than him on average, and they are Asomougha, Revis, Champ Bailey, Brandon Carr and Finnegan. There are a few that make nearly the same amount over their contract too and they are Dunta, Deangelo Hall, Chris Gamble, Brandon Flowers, Ladarius Webb, Leon Hall and Antonio Cromartie.

He's easily in the top 10 in terms of payment, so I think he's being paid just fine. No concern for future holdouts, and he's show to be a team player with his restructure this year.

They have misspelled Nnamdi Asomugha. Can't blame them, it's a hard name to spell.

Default Re: Jonathan Joseph overpaid?

I spent about 5 years griping that we needed a corner like him, it took having Wade as DC to get it done, you see where we are with the D, and heck no he is not overpaid.

Furthermore, we made the right choice getting KJ; we just put way too much on him too soon.

Pass D matters.

He's the 2nd best CB in the NFL behind Revis.

Definitely not overpaid.

And I'm tired of people saying Asomugha is better than Joseph. He isn't.

Aso couldn't even cover Jacoby Jones yesterday...

Exactly! Couldnt have said it better myself. Joseph, and Manning are two of the most important FA signing in this team's history.

As to whoever wrote that mess must not watch football, or just is a dumbass.... probably both.

Seems like a story where the writer just looked at a bunch of stats and salaries. The best CB's don't have descriptive stats, because they don't get thrown at.
