Now that the 2012 NFL season has concluded, many players will sign with new teams. I think that these players are the top 3 among free agents.
1. Mike Wallace: Wallace led the Pittsburgh Steelers in receiving yards last year. Wallace is one of the fastest player's in the NFL, and is showing no signs of slowing down. The Steelers' quarterback Ben Roethlisberger targeted Wallace more than any other Steeler. Wallace caught over half of those throws. This shows that Wallace can be a reliable option to throw to for any team for years to come.
2. Wes Welker: Over the last 5 years, Welker has been one of the best wide receivers in the NFL. Last year, Wes had the most receiving yards on his team and 8th most in the NFL. He also had the second most receptions in the NFL. Welker will definitely tune up any team's receiving core.
3. Steven Jackson: Steven Jackson can fill many team's needs in 2013. Jackson ran for 1,042 yards this year. That was the 15th most in the NFL. The Falcons, Lions, and Colts need a running back, so expect Jackson to end up with a pretty high salary.
Notable other free agents: Greg Jennings, Cliff Avril, Phil Loadhalt, Jake Long, and Dashon Goldson.
As you can see, this is a great class of free agents this year. Where they will land? My guess is as good as yours!
