Off the top of my head in recent years
Drew Brees ... FA
Jared Allen ... trade
Jason Peters ... trade
Champ Bailey ... trade
Nnamdi Asomugha was thought to be a shutdown corner. He is another example of FA acquisitions not always working out. Doesn't matter the reason, it happens.
Jjo was not considered a shutdown corner in Cincy, in fact he was thought to be their #2 CB behind Leon Hall. He outperformed all expectations.
