No. 5 – Drew Brees
Drew Brees isn’t higher on this list simply because the chances of him actually hitting the open market are most likely slim. Brees is indeed scheduled to become a free agent this offseason and although he is going to be 40, he would easily be the ideal target for the Bills.
In a perfect scenario, the Bills would sign Brees to a short-term deal, draft a QB (to develop) and then be set to go. The rookie QB would then have time to sit back and develop and learn from someone the quality of Brees. The team would not take an immediate step backwards just because they inserted a rookie QB and everything in Buffalo would continue to move forward.
The veteran leadership of a guy like Brees on the Buffalo offense would do wonders for the receiving core. Pairing Brees with LeSean McMcoy might even kick his gear into overdrive as well. However, this all would hang on Brees actually hitting the market, which still seems unlikely. It is worth noting though that before Brees signed his last contract with the Saints, he was not a fan of how the team handled him or the negotiations.
That doesn’t mean that is going to happen again but he is going on 40 and the NFL is a business, so I would suppose that anything is possible.
