There's a saying: "One man's trash is another man's treasure." And ever since the beginning of Plan A free agency in 1993, many teams have been able to coin that saying.
Drew Brees was once the Chargers' "trash". It was believed after a serious shoulder injury in 2005 that he would never be the same. So only two teams took a shot at him as a free agent in 2006: The Saints and Dolphins.
However, the Dolphins backed out because they thought it was to much of a risk. Boy were they wrong!
After leading the worst franchise in NFL history to a Super Bowl victory, where does the Saints signing of Drew Brees rank among the greatest free agent signings in NFL history?.
