Agent’s Take: The 2018 Contract Awards, featuring the best and worst NFL signings of the year

Dee Ford made the most of his contract year of any player in the NFL in 2018, according to CBS Sports analyst Joel Corry.

"Ford would have no shortage of suitors if the Chiefs let him hit the open market," Corry wrote. "As a highly-productive pass rusher in his prime, Ford would quickly join Rams interior defensive lineman Aaron Donald, the reigning NFL Defensive Player of the Year, and Bears edge rusher Khalil Mack, who won the award in 2016, in the $20 million-per-year non-quarterback club."

Another Chiefs player earned Corry's award for worst use of a contract season: wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin.

"Although there isn't going to be a particularly strong group of wide receivers available in the 2019 NFL draft, look for Benjamin to sign a one-year prove-it deal to try to re-establish his value," Corry wrote.
