that day, which ended up requiring surgery. The injury scare

When NFL teams "win" the off-season by signing marquee free agents , many fans and analysts are quick to name them Super Bowl favourites for the next year. However that is almost never the case. Teams can improve or get worse but the off-season is not the end all or be all for how good a team will be the next season. No one was saying the Eagles were going to win it all last off-season when they signed LeGarrette Blount and Chris Long from the Patriots, yet they both played a big role in their Super Bowl victory this season. The last time a team made a drastic improvement from average to a Super Bowl contender from a free agent signing was when the Broncos signed Peyton Manning in 2012, upgrading to him over Tim Tebow. That switch eventually lead to a Super Bowl victory for Denver, which proves that off-season moves can make a big difference for a team.This season, there are some big name quarterbacks that will be on the free agent market as well. Drew Brees is the number one guy likely to re-sign with his current team, but Kirk Cousins will definitely be on the move and he just narrowed his search down to the Broncos, Cardinals T.J. Hockenson Jersey , Jets, and Vikings. There is definitely room for improvement for teams that lack a quarterback with the free agents available and this draft also being loaded with quarterback talent. It is also likely that there will be teams that will not be as good as they were last year from losing players in free agency. The NFL is a copy cat league, so once a guy has success with a team, every other team is ready to poach him once his contract is up and free agency hits. On December 31, 2005 San Diego Chargers quarterback, Drew Brees, dropped back into the pocket to pass before Denver Broncos defensive back Jon Lynch knocked the ball out of his hands Jahlani Tavai Jersey , just inches from the Broncos end zone. As the ball rolled around on the grass, Drew Brees did what any football player would do and he dove for the ball. What happened next would change his life, and his NFL career, forever.He tore the labrum in his right throwing shoulder that day, which ended up requiring surgery. The injury scared the Chargers front office and the following off-season, they offered him a contract that showed just how much confidence they did not have in his future. So he started to field other offers and he met with the Miami Dolphins, who didn’t have confidence in his future either Will Harris Jersey , before finally landing in New Orleans in 2006, right after Hurricane Katrina completely destroyed the once vibrant and beautiful city.Drew took this as a challenge and, along with brand new head coach Sean Payton, they began what would be one of the most amazing quarterback and head coach duo’s in NFL history. Over the next 11 years, he would pass for over 50,000 yards, over 400 touchdowns Austin Bryant Jersey , and win 96 games, including a Super Bowl, the city’s first and only title.Drew Brees has never been the type of player to cause a problem for an organization. If he did not like a guy, chances are you wouldn’t hear it from him in the media. He would just learn to play with the guy and win games. He was never about himself, he was always about his teammates and his city, New Orleans.But what if he had to work with those troublesome players like Terrell Owens or Chad Johnson? How would he respond? How would that even work?Let’s take a look at the 15 Wide Receivers that Brees would HATE to play with.
