    I want to say T.O. even thouht he wasn't a bust per se,he was a tumor that had to be removed.

    But, I'll go with Mike Vanderjagt........we had always been cheap with kickers and spent a lot of money on this guy to blow chunks.

    Hard to get a worse return than CB Nolan Carroll.

    I actually disagree with this. He started 80 straight games and was at worst an average starter.

    He was more a result of a poor coaching system at the time then someone who was a "bust" and wasn't good.

    There's a reason why him, newman, and claiborne literally ALL improved the moment they left Dallas....... (when your entire secondary leaves and gets better that's a reflection of the team and not you)

    The list is long and undistinguished.

    I'm going with Eddie George. They signed him in 2004. Apparently, he retired in 2003..

    When he was with the Oilers/Titans, seven out of his eight seasons he rushed for well over a thousand yards. The other season he rushed for 939. He was a four time Pro Bowler, he was a thousand yard rusher the previous season.He had never nissed a start in his first eight seasons.

    In Dallas he carried as many as 31 times and never got a 100 yards in a game.....not one.He looked old, tired and completely uninspired.

    2nd place - Mike Vanderjagt, kicker....He was one of the best in the league, played for the Colts, once he got to Dallas he turned into Maher.

    Rivera easily. 5 years / 20 mil which at the time was the highest guard contract ever. Coming off 3 straight pro bowls in Green Bay to two back surgeries and two below average and injury ridden seasons in Dallas and then released.
