Every fan base has that player that they would go to war for. Whether they are a Hall of Fame quarterback, or a scrappy receiver in a blue-collar town, no one is safe from being labeled as overrated on today’s list. These are every NFL team’s most overrated player of all time.
Who are the most overrated NFL players of all time?
Arizona Cardinals: David Boston
Oh, David Boston. What an odd case you are, sir. Boston had a good start to his career with the Cardinals from 1999-02.
In his second season, he caught 71 passes for over 1,100 yards and seven touchdowns. 2001 would turn out to be his best season as a pro. He led the NFL in receiving yards with 1,598 on 98 receptions along with eight touchdowns. Boston only played in eight games in 2002, but he had done enough for the Chargers to give him a big contract in the offseason.
Boston didn’t play terribly, but it definitely wasn’t what the Chargers paid for. He was gone after the 2003 season after he dropped just about every big pass that came his way. He ended up with the Dolphins going into 2’04, where he ended up missing the season after it was found that he used performance enhancing drugs. He came back in 05 but there was nothing left.
Boston’s career in Arizona yielded one great year and three average years. Unfortunately, the Chargers couldn’t see that he was an overrated receiver and gave him a lot of money to do practically nothing.
