There are few forums in the world of professional sports as prone to rampant speculation as the week leading up to NFL free agency. Given the lack of trade-centric player movement in football, free agency is the central medium other than the draft that teams use to upgrade.
2012 boasts a particularly loaded free-agent class, featuring everything from high-flying pass catchers to potential franchise quarterbacks and dominant defensive backs, and you can bet the bigger names will be getting snapped up before you can blink at 4:00pm EST on Tuesday.
Of course, then there is Peyton Manning, whose release by the Indianapolis Colts alters the playing field significantly for the next week or so as quarterback-needy teams scramble to try to sign him.
Free agency is not a time for every team to be active. Clubs like the New York Giants and Green Bay Packers are unlikely to make any significant moves, while teams like the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are flush with cap space and in serious need of upgrades.
Who is preparing to make the most significant moves come Tuesday?
