The 2013 NFL free agency period is about to get rolling in less than a week. Yes, the crazy part of the year is about to start in earnest.
You will hear rumors of a player signing with three different teams and meeting with another four; all at once. You will see Tweets come out that indicate some currently under-the-radar team will fork over a ridiculous amount of money for a overrated veteran with just one season of decent production under his belt.
Yes, this is the time of the year that those of us in the media love to hate, or hate to love. I guess it depends on which way you look at it.
Fans of certain teams will be disappointed as their front offices make the "unpopular" decision to avoid free agency and build through the draft. Fans of other teams (Tampa Bay Buccaneers) will be overjoyed to see new big-named free agents join their favorite franchise.
Then there will be a ton of free agents that decide to return to their original team, acting the part of the anticlimactic raindrop in what was supposed to be a blizzard.
With all that said, some key free agents will be switching teams at rather lofty prices.
Today's article is going to focus on 12 free agents that promise to hit the bank later this month. I will rank their projected new contracts from lowest to highest.
Note: Players who were given the franchise tag will not be included in this list.
