It hasn't been the start to the 2017 season the Arizona Cardinals wanted, especially on the offensive side of the ball.
There were mixed reviews of the offseason moves offensively, but the opinion of Jermaine Gresham's contract was one that varied greatly.
Well, through a quarter of the season, Jermaine Gresham finds himself on a list no one wants to be on.

Through the first four games, no tight end has been a lesser value to the contract he is being paid.
This is partially not Gresham's fault. He was injured in game one and missed game two, but he's been basically invisible in the games he has played as a pass catcher, where, fair or not, the value of his contract will be measured.
While I'm not completely versed in all the tight ends in the NFL, I do know that what Gresham was paid to do is not what he's doing. Which is also not his fault.
However, that won't change the fact that one or the highest paid tight ends in the NFL is not producing like one.
Which makes his value… bad.
