What Will It Take to Land These 15 NFL Stars?

The official 2013 NFL free-agency period doesn't begin until March 12. Some teams are already making big moves in advance of free agency by releasing veteran star players from their existing contracts. All of these moves are intended to free up salary cap space so that teams can either sign their own free agents or have enough money available to sign the free agents they covet.

Next week, NFL teams can begin applying the franchise tag to players they want to hold on to. The franchise tag period begins on Monday, February 18, and runs until March 4.

Sunday, we will look at 15 key free agents and will project what it will take for new teams to acquire them. We will also look at a few stars who have an opportunity to land elsewhere via trade and what kind of packages it would take for their teams to be willing to pull the trigger.

Our final slide is devoted to players who will probably receive the franchise tag. There is no guarantee that all of them will be tagged, but if any of them don't and are allowed to reach the free-agent market, they will have plenty of suitors.
