If the report about the CB from Cleveland is true, good signing and the kind we need to continue with.
Actually, the teams that have done it best have gone for quantity over "quality".
The Redskins signed big names for years.
The Patriots signed many more free agents, albeit not big names, along with a few big names here and there.
Which team has done better?
There is no exact science to this.
It is not as simple to say do nothing as we did last year.
But signing too many high salary players at once is not the way to do it either.
The key is to have a philosophy. And an idea of what kind of player you want.
