The 2013 NFL free agent frenzy will begin on March 12.
It's a chance for franchises around the league to fill holes with accomplished players instead of relying solely on the draft, but teams better be ready to pay big money for the top names.
It's important to remember that the market is still beginning to take shape. Players like this year's Super Bowl MVP-winning quarterback, Joe Flacco, who is currently scheduled to become a free agent, isn't likely to get away from the Baltimore Ravens after his impressive playoff performance.
That said, this year's free agent class should still offer a pretty decent crop. As it stands now, teams searching for wide receivers and defensive linemen should be happy, and those looking for help in other areas will probably need to do some more digging.
Let's examine some of the marquee players that could be available starting on March 12, along with the latest news and rumors for each of those stars as well as early predictions regarding where they may land.
