Earlier this week, NFL free agency kicked off with a flurry of activity as some of the biggest names in the sport changed teams.
As free agency rolls on, FS1 host Colin Cowherd decided to look back at some of the best free agent signings in NFL history. Cowherd ranked his top 10, with quarterbacks taking the top three spots.
The list kicked off with the New England Patriots signing linebacker Mike Vrabel. A few other defensive players made the list, including the Green Bay Packers‘ additions of Charles Woodson and Reggie White.
Cowherd then had the Denver Broncos’ signing of Peyton Manning at No. 2. He helped the team to two Super Bowl appearances, winning one.
Here’s the full list from Cowherd.
Tom Brady to Tampa? Drew Brees to New Orleans?

Brees helped lead the team through temporary relocation following Hurricane Katrina and later led the team to its first and only Super Bowl win.
The future Hall of Fame quarterback announced his retirement from the game of football earlier this week.
