    i'm shocked Brees isn't signed by now. i can't see him leaving, but i would have thought that the Saints would have handled it before it got to this point.

    also gonna be interesting to see if they keep Colston around. I think if he leaves, it will hurt the saints more than it will help whichever team he goes to. but someone will overspend on him.

    good to see the broncos using their franchise tag on the kicker

    2012 NFL Free Agent Receivers

    By: Roshan Bhagat


    Vincent Jackson (SD) - Partially due to his actions and injuries in the past, the Chargers have been reluctant to sign Vincent Jackson to a long-term extension. However, after a third 1000-yard season with the Chargers, GM AJ Smith and Head Coach Norv Turner have expressed interest in keeping Jackson in San Diego for the long haul. If the Chargers don't have him locked up prior to the start of free agency, he may very easily leave on a tempting offer elsewhere.

    Wes Welker (NE) - Welker has averaged 111 receptions and 1221 yards over the last 5 seasons, since joining New England. It's safe to call Welker the best slot receiver in the league and one of the most valuable pieces to the Patriots' offense. During Super Bowl week he brushed off questions regarding his impending free agency, but it's a foregone conclusion that he'll remain in Foxborough.

    Reggie Wayne (IND) - After missing the 1000-yard mark for the first time since 2003, Wayne finds himself a free agent. All of the talk out of Indy has been on Peyton Manning and his costly option The Colts have been an organization takes care of their own over the last decade, but for a team expected to enter rebuilding, it'll be interesting to see if that philosophy changes for in the transition. Many expect Wayne to be playing elsewhere next season.

    DeSean Jackson (PHI) - Jackson is a great weapon for the Eagles offense that relies upon big plays. Unfortunately, Jackson's ego and sense of self-worth appears to have created a rift in negotiations thus far. Jackson will probably want to be paid as a top wide receiver, which he may not get from the organization after some his comments and actions of several months ago. To be fair, his play doesn't warrant it either.

    Dwayne Bowe (KC) - One subpar season aside, Dwayne Bowe has emerged into the number one receiver the offense needs. He's a big body and a good route runner with a large catching radius. His most impressive attribute is his body of work around the goal line. He's a complete mismatch with the fade, slant, and back shoulder passes and has shown the propensity to make the acrobatic catches on numerous occasions. If he can't be re-signed prior to free agency, he's probably the frontrunner ahead of Brandon Carr for the franchise tag.

    Marques Colston (NO) - When healthy, Colston is a match-up nightmare for any corner. He's an incredibly physical, sure-handed receiver and a polished route runner. When he's available, he brings another dimension to the Saints offense that none of their other talented weapons possess. Though Brees has proven capable of running the offense without him, they're even more dangerous with him. He'll most likely remain with the Saints.

    Steve Johnson (BUF) - Still working on his meager rookie salary, Johnson figures to be a big part of the Bills' long term plans. On a team with few superstars, the Bills can afford to lock up Johnson long term and maintain an effective passing attack. Though the sides don't appear to have begun extension talks, the Bills also have the option of using the franchise tag on him if they can't reach a deal before free agency.

    Brandon Lloyd (STL) - Lloyd quickly established himself as the Rams' top receiver after a trade landed him in St. Louis midway through the year. His explosive downfield ability and large catching radius make him a legitimate target to help Sam Bradford. The Rams will make a strong play to retain him and Lloyd has expressed interest in playing for coach Jeff Fisher.

    Robert Meachem (NO) - Meachem is one of the younger receivers that could be a nice pick-up for an offense with a larger workload to offer. He's a good downfield threat and has nice instincts in the red zone. For a team with Drew Brees, Marques Colston, and Carl Nicks as free agents, the organization has some work to do to bring back all of their key guys.

    Mario Manningham (NYG) - With Manningham behind breakout star Victor Cruz and Hakeem Nicks, the Giants have found a nice threesome. Though the Giants have done a great job of developing players at the position, they would like to see some continuity for Manning. Unfortunately for them, other teams may look to give Manningham a promotion into the starting lineup and a bigger contract that goes along with it.

    Laurent Robinson (DAL) - After spending some time in Atlanta, St. Louis, and San Diego, it didn't take Robinson a lot of time to find chemistry with Tony Romo in Dallas in his fifth year as a pro. He exploded on the scene replacing and playing behind Dez Bryant and Miles Austin in the lineup at various points throughout the season, accumulating 858 yards and 11 touchdowns in 14 games. Though Robinson has reaffirmed that he wants to remain in Dallas, it may be hard for the Cowboys to pay him as a third receiver if he receives serious attention on the open market.

    Mike Wallace (PIT) - Restricted - No receiver in the league forces safeties back like Wallace. His deep speed is second to none on the perimeter and he capitalizes on it with the ability to run those vertical routes proficiently. He's improving in other areas of his game and is an extremely valuable piece to the Steelers' offense. Keep in mind the highest Restricted tender would only net the Steelers a first round pick, which Wallace is certainly worth.

    if the eagles could get vincent jackson and let go of desean i would be happy with that.
  • DariusDarius Posts: 22,650 ✭✭✭✭
    I'd really like to see the panthers find a way to pick up Vincent Jackson. but definitely wouldn't want to see them get into any kind of bidding war. but when he's on top of his game, he's good enough to provide immediate relief and take the crown from steve smith and be our #1 for years to come. Stevie Johnson wouldn't be a bad one either, but it sounds like he's asking for more money than he's worth
  • HulkHustleHulkHustle Posts: 20,836 ✭✭✭✭✭
    I do not think Mario Williams will be back in houston. Texans don't have enough cap room to franchise him.

    I hope Routt going to KC is an indicator that they're going to let Brandon Carr walk...

    We could use him in DC.

    on a quick draft note RG3 to the Browns is career suicide

    Now on free angency...it's a shame Philly won't let Desean Cook, they insulting that man right now...he shoulda known he was gonna get franchised, One of the Top WR's will end up With the Skins and Minny

    Giants should reup Manningham and give JPP and Cruz good size payday
  • R.D.R.D. Posts: 11,586 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Letting go of Desean would fuck the Eagles over. Despite what you think about him, he's the most valuable receiver on that team and the offense changes w/o him

    damn RGIII is 6"3?

    giants could replace him with someone who doesn't drop balls and for a cheaper price.

    Only problem with that is that the Giants are over the cap so he would be the cheaper option at this time.

    i doubt they can keep manningham, unless he hits the open market and teams are willing to pay him what he thinks he's worth. and i'm sure at least 1 would be willing to meet his demands. he's a good player, but its ridiculous to think he can't be replaced at a cheaper price tag

    I'm not sure what the cheaper options are out there right now, I might have to check to see who the Giants can pick up that won't be a drop off of what they have.
