24. Trae Waynes
It’s been a very frustrating time for Waynes. In one of the most surprising moves of the offseason, he moved to the Cincinnati Bengals on a three-year, $42 million deal in March. The lucrative contract will see him earn about $20 million alone this year. But the problem is that he still isn’t officially a Bengal.
The global health crisis meant that he couldn’t take his physical. Until that happens, the Bengals won’t pay him. It also means he can’t train heavily in case of injury. This could cause the Bengals to renege on the contract agreement. In short, Waynes is in a bizarre situation but still set to get paid one of the highest salaries for a cornerback.
