Default Does spending money in free agency lead to success?

Does spending money in free agency lead to success?

Quote:
The Miami Dolphins started free agency 2013 off with a bang when they locked up wide receiver Mike Wallace on Tuesday. Then they proceeded to keep spending. And spending.

Following the Dustin Keller and Brandon Gibson moves on Friday, we're ready to call this race after less than a week: No team is going to out-spend the Dolphins this offseason. They are the "Offseason Champs."

But does getting fans excited in March help in December?


We decided to look back at the last five years of free-agent frenzy "winners" and see how much that money helped. This is far from a scientific study, but Dolphins fans may not want to read ahead.

2012: Buffalo Bills
Big names really do want to play in Buffalo! A ton of folks were talking up...

2011: Philadelphia Eagles
Could the "Dream Team" really be only two years old? GM Howie Roseman....

2010: Detroit Lions
...
2009: Washington Redskins
The Redskins have annually made a ton of noise in March...

2008: Cleveland Browns
Coming off a 10-6 season, the Browns had momentum...

That's the trouble with offseason titles: They create big expectations. Big disappointment usually follows.
