Every year, top-tier NFL free agents sign massive contracts, and most don't live up to those contracts.
Guys like Vincent Jackson, Carl Nicks and Mario Williams will all have difficulty being worthy of their monumental contracts.
This article isn't about those headline-grabbing players. This is about guys like Brandon Lloyd and Eric Winston, players who didn't grab a headline when signed but will make a major impact in 2012.
Many players were signed to solid, well-deserved contracts, and these players will be the free agents who people will be talking about at the end of the season.
Lloyd, Winston and these players have been overlooked to this point, but at the end of the season, they will be considered absolute steals.
