    Default NFL's most overpaid and underpaid

    NFL's All-Overpaid, All-Underpaid teams

    by Alex Marvez

    Alex Marvez is a Senior NFL Writer for FOXSports.com. He's covered the NFL for 14 seasons as a beat writer and is the president of the Pro Football Writers of America.




    Here's some more bad news for Al Davis:

    The Oakland Raiders aren't eligible for a government bailout.


    At 3-10, Davis' franchise is out of playoff contention despite a wild off-season spending spree. Three Oakland players — wide receiver Javon Walker, safety Michael Huff and defensive tackle Tommy Kelly — as well as ex-Raiders cornerback DeAngelo Hall are on FOXSports.com's All-Overpaid team for 2008.

    Conversely, Tampa Bay is tied with New England for the most players (three) on our All-Underpaid squad. Not only are both clubs still in the playoff hunt, the Buccaneers and Patriots are among the NFL's most frugal franchises.
    According to USA Today, the 2008 payrolls for Tampa Bay ($104.3 million) and New England ($92.7 million) rank 23rd and 30th respectively. Oakland leads the league at $152.4 million — providing further proof that no team can buy a Super Bowl title.

    Exactly. I mean how much does the field goal kicker make? Granted he must have legs of steel, but c'mon...

    And the guy who does the opening kick? (He's probably the field goal kicker.)

    They are all overpaid.
