Did The Saints sell their soul for Brees to become a hall of famer?

Seems like they have either been awful, headcase, or injured?

Vilma, Sharper (headcase but worked out), Unger. Who else?

Greer, Sharper, Fujita, Vilma, Sproles, Grubbs, Watson, etc. We've had a lot of FA busts since 2012, but there have been several that have worked out since Brees.

I know cutting Spiller just feels like everything has been spiraling out of control or whatever. Dead money. Free agent busts. 7-9. Bad drafts.

But don't lose your head. We haven't been THAT bad. Plenty of our free agents have worked out.

Yea.... My old memory is failing me... I guess I was thinking more recently.

Darren Sproles --- Until that ran its course due to cap issues
Darren Sharper --- Wouldn't have won a Super Bowl without him
Jonathan Vilma --- Same as Sharper
Jabari Greer --- Was a thing of beauty until the poor guy broke his leg


Problem is these moves were before 2012 and there are a host of moves by number that outweigh the good ones above

Are you dense? Jabari Greer, Darren Sproles, Darren Sharper, Jonathan Vilma, Ben Watson (like Sharper, only 1 year, but like Sharper, it was a great year)...and those are players that played at a Pro Bowl-level, there have many more than played at more than adequate as starters/role players, you are letting the recent misfortune dilute your judgement.

Edit: Should've mentioned Kenaan Lewis too

SNEAD was a player waived by another team. Not quite a FA think we got him off waiver wire. He is working out pretty well though.
Sorry for wrong info. He was a free agent signed to practice squad in 2014.

Look.... I said my memory was failing me before you posted this... No need for name calling.... I said Sharper, Unger, and Vilma. Sproles and Greer slipped my mind.

I didn't include Pierre because he didn't come from another team. If I edited my post to 2012... Only Watson and Hunger right?

I included injured in my 1st post as well. I know that isn't anyone's fault but it seems to happen a lot to our quality free agents/trades.

If it isn't a HOFer like Drew Brees FAIL

Pro bowl level production is regrettably acceptable anything under that equals absolute failure.
