1. Brandon Browner

After three impressive seasons with the Seahawks and another good season in New England, it was a huge deal for the Saints to sign Brandon Browner for their secondary in the 2015 offseason. The move felt like one that couldn’t fail but it did.

Pretty much the only positive thing that could be said about Browner’s one year with the Saints was that he did start all 16 games that year.

Now that the positivity is out of the way, let’s focus on the negatives and what landed Browner so high on this list. First and foremost, the guy was just awful in coverage. He was the most penalized player in the league not only that season but of all time. 

After Browner was officially released following an atrocious season, he had the audacity to brag about robbing the Saints with the $7 million he earned to play like garbage. Fans weren’t sad to see Browner go and he remains as one of the worst, if not the worst, free agent signing of all-time.
