Wide Receiver- Mike Wallace of the Pittsburgh Steelers
1. Mike Wallace (UFA)
Recording under 1,000 receiving yards for the first time in two seasons isn't the way Mike Wallace was planning to prove that he is ready for the big money.
Heading into 2012, he was humbled into accepting a one-year, $2.7 million restricted-free-agent tender offered by his current team, the Pittsburgh Steelers, after a lengthy holdout.
Wallace borders on having too much attitude to be worthwhile, but his abilities are undeniable. Twenty-six touchdowns since 2009 is an impressive number.
Hopefully, the fact that no other NFL squad entertained his expensive contract requests brings him back to reality come 2013.
Add on that he is second fiddle to Antonio Brown, and the four-year veteran could be looking to leave Steeltown.
Through his first three campaigns, No. 17 only dropped 2.9 percent of targeted passes and never more than four passes in a single season. That type of reliability is exactly what many teams will be looking for...provided the price is right.
2. Dwayne Bowe (UFA)
Unable to agree on a multi-year deal with the Kansas City Chiefs, Dwayne Bowe is currently on a franchise tender worth $9.4 million.
With the Chiefs performing terribly once again and being uncertain about the future at quarterback, this would be an ideal opportunity for a team in need of a playmaker to scoop Bowe up.
The former Pro Bowl receiver has not been able to recapture the magic of his 2010 campaign when he recorded 15 scores
The LSU alum missed the last three games of a season where he failed to reach the 1,000-yard mark and only recorded a trio of touchdowns.
Bowe won't come cheap, but at age 28, he still has plenty of time left to be a playmaker with a new club.
3. Greg Jennings (UFA)
Missing half the season with a groin injury left question marks in regard to whether Greg Jennings could return to his former dominant self.
Scoring twice in the regular-season finale at least momentarily proves that the seven-year Green Bay Packer can still be an impact player.
The 29-year-old's career average of over 15 yards per catch is impressive, and the man is a first-down machine.
However, Green Bay's offense did not miss a step without Jennings and the emergence of young receivers may mean that the team views him as expendable.
The Kalamazoo, Mich., native would be a significant upgrade for many clubs and he would have no trouble finding a new home.
4. Wes Welker (UFA)
He isn't the tallest, fastest or most athletically gifted wide receiver. Yet the 5'9" Wes Welker has put together a tremendous career.
However, how much of that is a direct result of the relatively unique offense run by Patriots quarterback Tom Brady?
His receiving yards and touchdowns dropped slightly from 2011 due in part because New England head coach Bill Belichick started Julian Edelman over him early in the season.
However, the Texas Tech product bounced back and resumed his role as one of Brady's favorite targets (118 receptions).
Welker was given the franchise tag at a price of $9.515 million as negotiations went south on a longer-term solution.
If the two sides cannot figure out a deal, then we could see No. 83 in a different jersey next year.
