Default Best paid bench warmers in the NFL

Interesting to note that 2 of the 5 play for the Jets. Also interesting to see what a dud LaMont Jordan has been. I suppose he could serve as a poster boy for the dangers of free agency.

1. Chad Pennington - New York Jets
2007-08 salary: $7 million
Games started: 8
Touchdown passes: 10
Interceptions: 9

Arm injuries have helped limit Pennington to one full 16-game season since breaking in with the Jets in 2000. He enters 2008 second on the depth chart to youngster Kellen Clemens.

2. Kabeer Gbaja-Biamila - Green Bay Packers
2007-08 cap value: $6.6 million
Games started: 2
Tackles: 26
Quarterback sacks: 9.5

A full-time starter for four years, Gbaja-Biamila has been mostly reduced to being a pass rushing specialist.

3. Lamont Jordan - Oakland Raiders
2007-08 cap value: $5.4 million
Games started: 7
Yards per carry: 3.8
Touchdowns: 3

Impressive in part-time duty with the Jets a few years ago, Jordan cashed in with a big free agent deal with the Raiders in 2005. He's been mostly a flop by the Bay, averaging just 669 yards per season on less than four yards a carry.

4. David Barrett - New York Jets
2007-08 cap value: $4.4 million
Games started: 9
Interceptions: 1
Tackles: 63

The high-priced defensive back has started only 20 of a possible 48 games over the past three years. The Jets list him as a backup for the upcoming season.

5. Visanthe Shiancoe - Minnesota Vikings
2007-08 cap value: $4.2 million
Games started: 15
Passes caught: 27
Touchdowns: 1

Minnesota thought enough of Shiancoe during his four years as a part timer for the New York Giants to ink him to a big contract that included a $5 million signing bonus. Shiancoe started 15 of 16 games last season, but caught only 27 passes for 323 yards. He's listed as the No. 2 tight end this pre-season, behind 10-year veteran Jimmy Kleinsasser

Might be one reason the Texans gold mine for their safeties. Sift through a bunch of promising gravel and hope you hit a couple of nuggets.

Thats why I was scarred of going after Turner. You see stories like Jordan's to often for my taste.
