S: LaRon Landry
2010 base salary: $1.27M
A switch to the 3-4 in Washington has helped LaRon Landry evolve into one of the premier safeties in the league. Ironically, before the season many would have deemed Landry, who was extremely inconsistent, overpaid. But as Landry proved with his performance against the Green Bay Packers (13 tackles, one interception, one forced fumble), he's not only worth every penny; he's severely underpaid.
