Corey Wootton’s quest is different from the other guys on this list in the sense that Wootton at one point was a stand out in the NFL. After a great 2012 season for the Chicago Bears that saw him notch 7 sacks,Wootton’s career has been on a downward spiral.

Now on his 3rd NFC North team, Wootton must prove that he is not a one hit wonder. There are thoughts out there that Wootton could be this seasons George Johnson. While I agree with that thought, I have my questions on whether or not Wootton is up to the challenge. If he is this could be signing the Lions are glad they made. If he doesn’t, you have to wonder if Green Bay is his next destination.
