With the NFL free agency coming to action maybe it’s time to take a good look at the riskiest free agent, after all this guys will get pay a ton of money but there are three of them that I’m not so sure about.
3. Tight End Kevin Boss, Last Team: NY Giants
We often think Kevin Boss is a strong player with great hands and we don’t realize the production from Giants in the tight end position has gone down when Jeremy Schockey was let lose. Boss is an average player who has a bigger name that his stats give him credit for.
Boss had just five TDs last season and had 35 receptions, the worst part is that only Zack Miller and Todd Heap are stronger free agents in that position, meaning he will be a hot free agent that will end up as a bust in the near future.
2. Running back Ronnie Brown, Last Team: Miami Dolphins
Don’t get me wrong I like Ronnie; I think he has enormous talent but at this point in his career he’s has been so injured that we don’t know we get with him.
Last season Brown average 5.3 yards per attempt with good blocking from his offensive line; that number was tied for second-to-last in the league among running backs with 100 or more rushing attempts.
1. Quarterback Kevin Kolb, Last Team: Philadelphia Eagles
Kevin Kolb is not technically a free agent but we all know he’s on the market, plus, he is the hottest name in the quarterback position for this frenzy free agency we are about to live.
Kolb is not a secure quarterback, first, he hasn’t led a team in a complete NFL season and second his bad-decision rate was tied for the third-highest mark in the league. The bad decision rate is when a quarterback makes a turnover or a near-turnover.
Kevin is anything but a sure thing, in fact if it possible depending on his destination his success rate will drop tremendously. He can’t carry on with any team; he needs the right team to make it happen.
