NFL Free Agent Wide Recivers
In today's NFL, wide receivers play an important role in most offenses. There are the possession, deep threat, and number one targets. This year is loaded with third slot receivers , and sprinkled with a couple of nice possession receivers.
Houshmandzadeh's numbers were low this year, mainly because of issues at quarterback (with Carson Palmer injury), but don't expect his numbers to be like that for a long time, Houshmandzadeh's one of the elites with a lot to offer for any team.

Bryant brought his career from the dead this year, but probably because it was his contract year. I'm expecting him to return to normal this coming season (if he gets a long term contract).

Lance Moore (RFA)
Moore had a breakout year this season with 79 catches, 928 yards, and 10 touchdowns. Moore is a good possession receiver, and knows where to go after he catches the ball. Most likely he will not be signing back with the Saints, and will be a slot receiver for another team next season.

Washington has excellent size and speed, drops too many passes, and will probably never be a No. 1 receiver in this league, but that won't stop many teams from looking at him.

We all know Clayton has the potential to be a great receiver in this league. He had an excellent rookie year with 80 catches, 1,193 yards and seven touchdowns. Since then he has played like a backup role player, with his stats slashed in half.
