There are a number of things that have been a constant during the Mike Brown Era. Losing. Frugality. Fan Disrespect. Going along with those general issues, Mikey Boy does not sign top flight free agent talent. I think there a couple reasons for this. His nonexistent scouting department doesn't produce a good evaluation of newly free players from around the league. Maybe it's because he despises paying good players top dollar when he can just draft 10 guys and then pay them very little until they possibly become good a couple years down the road. At which point he cuts half of them loose because they ask for a huge pay raise. And also, let's not forget that players are aware of Brown's shortcomings and even if he did offer them fair market value, they probably say no thanks because they don't want to become embroiled in Mikey's world of cost cutting and defeatism. So with all that, I think we all know Mikey Boy isn't going to explode onto the scene Friday with a big name signing. We can hope for it, staying up late at night fantasizing about Brandon Marshall wearing the stripes, but we all know deep down that the Matt Jones signing will be the only one at WR.
Of course, there is one WR out there that if Mikey really wanted to drive me off the cliff of insanity, he would give a deal to. Terrell "sunshine on my goddamn shoulders" Owens. Please don't sign him. He's really old and not nearly as good as he used to be. I'd much rather have no new receivers than that receiver.
