A few weeks ago I mentioned that Maurice Clarett signed an incentive-laden contract that didn't include a signing bonus. Which means no guaranteed money. Well, Clarett has missed nearly two weeks of practice due to a groin injury, has fallen to fifth on the depth chart, and is in real danger of getting cut. Not only that, but there have been grumblings from both players and coaches who believe Clarett is dogging it, incredulous that he's not starting, and unhappy with his contract. The first thing Clarett might want to do is start practicing and try to make the team. The very next thing he should do is look for a new agent.

It's a year of huge cornerback contracts, with A.J. Bouye and Stephon Gilmore breaking the bank. But will these big-money contracts, and the big-time gambles associated with them, pay off?
