You present a false argument. There is no objective data that supports a linear correlation with team success and spending excessively in free agency. In fact, I would argue that the upper echelon teams (in terms of consistency) are selective with free agency and build through solid drafting (Packers, Steelers, Ravens, Patriots, 49'ers, Giants) and teams that traditonally spend heavily in free agency have little to show for it (Redskins, Bills, Eagles)
That's probably true but our gm doesn't have any get out of jail, keep building through the draft cards left. The team has to take a big leap this year or he's gone. I am sure he is going to make some big FA signings with all that slush fund he has accumulated. Hopefully he re-signs some of our own.
