Pernell McPhee is probably the player on this list who has received the most playing time, but that doesn’t mean he’s done much of anything with his snaps.

McPhee has appeared in all nine games this season, but he’s only been on the field for 34 percent of defensive snaps. That’s a decent number of snaps, but it hasn’t resulted in production.

The 32-year-old has just 14 tackles and one sack this season. His 53.9 Pro Football Focus grade is one of the worst among all edge defenders in the NFL as he hasn’t been effective as either a run stopper or pass rusher.

McPhee’s 54.8 run-defense grade is 77th out of 108 qualified edge defenders while his lowly 54.7 pass-rush grade ranks 99th out of 106 qualified players at his position.

If anything, McPhee has had a negative impact when he’s been on the field.

On top of that, he doesn’t even contribute on special teams either having played just one special-teams snap this season.

McPhee has seen his production decrease as the year has gone on, likely a product of his poor play, as he received just three defensive snaps in the team’s Week 9 win over the Minnesota Vikings.

At this stage, McPhee’s time as a valuable situational pass rusher seems to be in the past. He just isn’t effective anymore.

And as a result, he doesn’t have much of a role.
