I guess it depends on what you mean by "any good".

That looks like an Agaricus which is a bit past its eat-by date, as in it's starting to go bad. None of the Agaricus species are active, many are edible, many are poisonous.

As for identification to species, Agaricus are difficult when they're fresh and in good shape. That one is neither, and, unless it's a very distinctive one, it's probably going to be pretty much impossible to ID to species.

It definitely should not be eaten, as it looks like a risk for food poisoning, not to mention the possibility that it's one of the poisonous Agarius species.

Happy mushrooming!

Happy mushrooming!

agaricus do not bear a hollow stipe. id be interested in learning the spore color, the patchy crouded gills and location would make me think stropharia or possibly (but unlikely) panaeolus.
always print it, it can make a big difference in a judgement call like this.
