Since OTAs are over and training camp is still weeks away, the vast majority of contract negotiations are over, and those that are still unsettled are likely to drag into late July or August.

With little threat of a new albatross contract lapping the field, the dog days of the NFL off-season are the perfect time to examine the game’s worst contracts. With the help of some interactive visualizations from PointAfter, I’ll lay out the most overpaid players at each position.

Players who were signed to be backups won’t be considered in this exercise. Guys who lost their starting jobs over the course of their contract, however, are obviously fair game.

Note: All salary figures are according to Spotrac.

Quarterback: Jay Cutler

Among full-time starters, Jay Cutler’s 2014 production relative to his base salary (third data point from the right) lies the farthest under the trend line in the graph below. Even if you ignore the ghastly amount of turnovers Jay Cutler can unleash on any given Sunday, he still provides the least bang for your buck among every starter in the league in terms of passing yards.

Cutler is the only quarterback in the league whose contract tops $125 million in total value, and although he’s not likely to see the end of that contract nor most of the performance incentives that drive up its grand total, the Bears embattled No. 1 quarterback undoubtedly the most overpaid man at his position.

RB #1: Jonathan Stewart

Grossly overpaid running backs are becoming a rarity in the NFL, as front offices are understandably cautious in committing big money to a position largely regarded as replaceable.

The contract the Panthers gave Jonathan Stewart in 2012 was one of the last of its kind: a five-year, $36.5 million extension that currently ranks as the fifth-richest deal for a running back. For a player who’s never been a full-time starter in the NFL and has gone on to rush for just 1,325 yards in the three injury-shortened seasons since signing the deal (Stewart has missed 21 games due to injuries), the money Stewart is owed in the coming years is a daunting obstacle for the Carolina front office.

RB #2: Donald Brown

If Brown makes San Diego’s roster this season, he’ll take up nearly $4.1 million on San Diego’s cap. It might actually make more sense for the Chargers to cut up and eat $2.2 million worth of dead money he’d alternatively count for, because Brown won’t be seeing much time on the field, anyway. First-round pick Melvin Gordon, Branden Oliver and Danny Woodhead could ultimately make the 28-year-old a superfluous back.

It was extremely tempting to put Adrian Peterson and his gargantuan $15.4 million 2015 cap hit in this spot. But the possibility remains that Peterson returns from his suspension this year in peak form. Heck, maybe having a year off the gridiron was the best thing for his long-term health.

WR #1: Mike Wallace

Mike Wallace Overview | PointAfter

Mike Wallace made a name for himself in Pittsburgh as a dangerous deep threat for cannon-armed Ben Roethlisberger. The two combined to give defenses headaches, as Wallace averaged eight touchdowns and more than 1,000 yards per season during four campaigns in the Steel City.

But Wallace hasn’t been nearly as consistent since skipping town for a five-year, $60 million deal with Miami that made him the second-highest paid wideout in the game. Citing his atrocious run-blocking and inconsistent connection with Ryan Tannehill, Pro Football Focus had Wallace tied for 53rd in its overall grades for receivers in 2014.

Maybe the speedster will return to his old ways in Minnesota. But Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater is known for having issues with downfield throws, which is how Wallace picks up the vast majority of his yardage. For now, there’s no other receiver who can be considered the most overpaid flanker in the NFL.

WR #2: Riley Cooper

Riley Cooper Overview | PointAfter

Last offseason, the Eagles rewarded Cooper following his breakout 2013 campaign (47 receptions, 835 yards, eight touchdowns) with a five-year, $22.5 million deal. After a mediocre follow-up campaign in 2014 that saw him net just three touchdowns while averaging only 10.5 yards per reception, the deal looks like a vast overreaction.

A glance at Cooper’s seasonal averages: 30 receptions, 418 yards, three touchdowns. And yet, he’s being paid like a bona fide No. 2 receiver. Whoever ends up under center in Philadelphia will need a security blanket for a weakened offensive line, and Cooper doesn’t appear capable of sustaining that role over the long term.
