Re: 2013 Offseason Thread (Free Agency, Releases, Trades, etc)
He's an upgrade over Webb but not a big one and not worth that kind of contract. And he didn't give up a ton of sacks but he got beat time and time again. He avoided sacks because Brees delivers fast and steps into the pocket. It helps having Pro Bowl guards on his side for his whole career. I think you'll be disappointed if you expect him to be a Pro Bowler again but he can be alright. The biggest impact will probably be from Aaron Kromer. He helped make Carl Nicks, Jahri Evans, Jonathan Goodwin and Bushrod into Pro Bowlers. Hell the Saints plugged in an UDFA guard at center in De la Puente and he was one of the highest graded centers in the NFL.
