I think there are quite a few teams that have the same philosophy when it comes to FA. The days of making huge impact signings in FA are over, at least for good teams. Most of the wiser teams build through the draft and use FA to add role players for a reasonable price. In fact, I'd say the better teams use the FA market to find some cheap young talent that never got a chance with their previous team and are given a shot to prove themselves. When I think of teams with a history of making big moves in the FA market, I think of perennial losers like the Browns and Raiders, and it's usually because they did a poor job in the draft. The teams that draft well always seem to trade away guys and stock up on more draft picks.
