Dolphins LB Karlos Dansby Among Forbes' 'Most Overpaid Players'

Miami Dolphins linebacker Karlos Dansby has been ranked as one of the most overpaid players in the NFL, according to Forbes Magazine. Dansby is set to make $10.7 million in 2012.

The magazine lists the linebacker second on the list behind New York Jets linebacker David Harris, who is set to make $12 million in salaries and bonuses this season. The magazine stated that all the players on the list were talented, but concluded that their production fell short of the sizable payments they were receiving.

In Dansby's case, the magazine cited that he failed to make the All-NFL team in his first eight seasons, yet is still the league's second-highest paid linebacker.

Other players on the list include: Johnathan Joseph of the Houston Texans, Vernon Davis of the San Francisco 49ers and Oakland Raiders running back Darren McFadden.
