Tracking Every 2013 NFL Free-Agent Signing

Tracking Every 2013 NFL Free-Agent Signing

0 of 10

    Kicking off opening week of the 2013 NFL year, we are tracking every free-agent signing to cover pro football's entire landscape of available players.

    Ahead, you'll see the agents separated by their position and respective 2012 team. 

    This way you can easily find specific players of interest, as well as those departing/arriving from/to your favorite team. Wes Welker of the New England Patriots is a prime example, simply because he's easily one of the best overall players.

    To find out where Welker and everyone else suits up next fall, let's dive into 2013's whirlpool of free agents.

     

    Note: Full list of 2013 free agents courtesy of Rotoworld's Nick Mensio. Also, restricted free agents have an asterisk (*) next to their name, and be sure to check back often for continuous updates.

Quarterbacks

1 of 10

    Although it's the most important position on the field, there aren't many appealing quarterbacks in this free agency. That said, some seasoned veterans are available as potential backups.

Running Backs/Fullbacks

2 of 10

    Some solid talent exists at running back regarding free agency. Given that the 2013 NFL draft is shallow at the position compared to 2012, expect many backs to get picked up rather quickly.

Wide Receivers

3 of 10

    Much like running backs in the 2013 draft, the wide receivers aren't extensively deep either. As a result, the free-agent receivers only become more appealing to any team needing a playmaker.

Tight Ends

4 of 10

    Tight ends are becoming increasingly valuable to an offense in this pass-happy era. The ability to run block when needed is helpful, but possessing talent to make plays as a receiver amplifies a free agent's marketability.

Offensive Line

5 of 10

    As you can see, there are plenty of offensive linemen to be had via free agency. Interestingly enough, though, the 2013 draft class provides an abundance of talent up front. So, only anticipate the top-heavy talent going quick, whereas the rest will likely have to wait until after the draft.

Defensive Line

6 of 10

    The defensive line faces an eerily similar situation to the offensive line. The draft presents great talent and depth, and free agency has a rather quantitative outlook. Given how vital quarterback pressure is, though, this will be an intriguing position to watch throughout the early stages of the new NFL year.

Linebackers

7 of 10

    Linebackers are in a unique situation regarding today's NFL.

    Depending on a defense's scheme, only certain players will fit the mold. The minuscule differences between a 4-3 and a 3-4 front are simply more drastic when it comes to a player's capabilities than at first glance.

    In short, outside linebackers are typically more appealing, because applying quarterback pressure in a variety of ways is always a stronger selling point.

Cornerbacks

8 of 10

    The best of this list won't be available long.

    A defense possesses a distinct competitive advantage with a cornerback capable of isolating half the field in coverage, not to mention helping with run support. The draft isn't incredibly deep with corners compared to 2011 or 2012, and any veteran below will find somewhere to suit up next season.

Safeties

9 of 10

    Welcome to the last line of defense in safeties.

    These guys have to be turnover machines when sitting in Cover 1 or 3, while also possessing the ability to roll down and shield in coverage at the intermediate level. Instincts, if anything, are the most vital to a defense when looking to add a safety for improved coverage.
