2012 NFL Free Agents: Best Wide Receivers on the Market

Even with Vincent Jackson, Marques Colston, Mario Manningham, Brandon Lloyd and Robert Meachem all signing new contracts already and Wes Welker, Dwayne Bowe and DeSean Jackson being hit with the franchise tag by their respective teams, there are still plenty of serviceable wide receivers on the market who can help many teams.

Mike Wallace, surprisingly, has not re-signed with the Pittsburgh Steelers as of yet and remains a restricted free agent. He is only going into his fourth season and is a legitimate deep threat many teams crave. Last season, Wallace averaged 16.6 yards per catch.

The obvious problem remains the amount of money in the contract. Especially after Tampa Bay gave 29-year-old Jackson a five-year, $55.55 million contract with $26 million guaranteed. The New Orleans Saints gave Colston a five-year, $40 million deal with $19 million guaranteed.

Even Laurent Robinson, the Dallas Cowboys' third receiver from last season got paid, signing a five-year, $32.5 million contract with $14 million guaranteed with the Jacksonville Jaguars, solidifying that the wide receiver marked has gone mad.

Here are the seven best receivers left on the market.
