We are entering week eight in the NFL and for several teams it will symbolise the half way point in their hunt to make the off-season.
So it is a good time to review some of the players in the NFL so far this season and financial analysis website Forbes.com has issued a very interesting list.
Taking a look at the most overpaid players so far this season, they have composed a list of 10 of the NFL's high earning players who haven't quite contributed what they should have so far.
It is based on how much the players are paid, their previous accomplishments and what they have achieved this season.
It is bad news however for the New York Jets as their newest star tops the list with former Seattle Seahawks Wide Receiver Percy Harvin considered the most overpaid.
The Jets created a buzz last Friday when they traded a conditional mid-round pick to the Seahawks for the troubled Wide Receiver.
Forbes view Harvin as the most overpaid player in the league this season as his $13.3 million cap hit has only returned an average of six yards a catch in five games.
He has taken 22 receptions in the opening five games this season but his trade to the Jets could very well be make or break for Harvin.
The other under achievers
Joining Harvin on Forbes list, is last years star Runningback for the Philadelphia Eagles, LeSean McCoy who hasn't hit the heights of last season.
McCoy is averaging 3.6 yards per carry this season - a distinct drop after averaging 5.1 yards per carry last season.
Oakland Raiders Quarterback Matt Schaub comes in at third after arriving from the Houston Texans in the off-season but failing to claim the starting job over rookie Derek Carr.
Detroit Lions Defensive Tackle Ndamukong Suh and Kansas City Chiefs Runningback Jamaal Charles complete the top five.
Two defensive Linemen in the Baltimore Ravens' Haloti Ngata and the Seahawks' Cliff Avril, Cleveland Browns' Cornerback Joe Haden also help comprise the list.
The final two is made up of Cincinnati Bengals Tight-end Jermaine Gresham and Matt Moore, Quarterback for the Miami Dolphins.
It is an interesting list and hard to argue with many of the points made in it, but only time will tell if the players can turn it around in the second half of the season.
