Philadelphia went through a similar experience in 2011 when the Eagles broke from tradition and assembled an all-star cast of free agents, including cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha, defensive end Jason Babin and defensive tackle Cullen Jenkins. They were the "Dream Team" that would return the Eagles to the Super Bowl. Only they didn't. Players never meshed, losses piled up and coach Andy Reid was fired after 14 years on the job. "I'm not a real big believer in spending in free agency," said Minnesota general manager Rick Spielman. "We're always going to try to build through the draft and continue to do that. I think you have a lot more success when you sign your own players as unrestricted free agents because you know them the best. I think it's a little riskier when you go out and try to sign other teams' UFAs. "They take time to adjust to their new teammates, take time to adjust to their new surroundings and take time to adjust to the new offenses they're running. So it's not always as smooth a transition as people would think it would be."
