Beginning tonight at midnight, NFL teams can initiate negotiations with player agents in advance of next Tuesday (March 12 at 4 p.m.) when players can officially sign contracts.
Thus far, organizations have prepared for this year's free agency period by pulling off expected trades (Alex Smith to the Kansas City Chiefs), making interesting roster cuts (Michael Turner, John Abraham and Dunta Robinson by the Atlanta Falcons) and restructuring key contracts (Tom Brady and the New England Patriots).
The bevy of movement to this point will make for an intriguing month or so leading up to the offseason's big event: the NFL draft.
Trying to figure out where certain players will end up can be tiresome, but there is information out there that can help mitigate that process.
Here are clues as to where some of the top free agents might land.
