The signing of Drew Brees in 2006 by the New Orleans Saints will go down as one of the best free-agent acquisitions in NFL history. There's little argument to be made to the contrary and Brees' success is one of the prime reasons NFL teams focus so hard on free agency.

Last season, the Saints seemingly used free agency more vigorously as a tool to improve the team than since then-rookie Coach Sean Payton and General Manager Mickey Loomis flooded the roster with free-agent signees in 2006 as part of the rebuilding process.

The Saints signed high-priced talent like guard Ben Grubbs, linebackers Curtis Lofton and David Hawthorne and defensive tackle Brodrick Bunkley last offseason to long-term contracts despite the team or the players knowing the punishments of the bounty scandal. And the jury is still out on whether those moves will pay off in the long run for the Saints.
