No, Brees doesn't have a stronger arm than he had before he tore his damn rotator cuff. He did come all the way back from it, but he certainly didn't end up with a stronger one.
Brees was also considered a "weak" armed quaterback coming out of college. A lot of that could be attributed just to his size but nonetheless, question marks about his arm were there before his draft.
Now hes probably considered to be just outside of your "elite" level. So something had to happen in between college and now.
Its not completely uncommon in pro athletes. Pitchers have been known to have a "stronger" arm after surgery e.g. Smoltz, Hoffman...
