8 Biggest NFL Free Agent Busts

5. Dana Stubbliefield (DT Washington Redskins 1998)

To cap off the Daniel Snyder failure trio, we have a defensive tackle that simply fell off the map. Dana Stubblefield was the NFL’s top defensive player in 1997 for the San Francisco 49ers. He accumulated an impressive 15.5 sacks but, apparently, only put forth the effort so that he could score a massive contract in the off-season. He got that massive contract from the Washington Redskins, but he never was the same player. Stubblefield played 3 disappointing seasons in Washington, and accumulated less than half as many sacks combined than what he had in 1997 (7). Stubblefield is one of the many harsh reminders to Redskins fans that ownership is an epic failure.
