If any upcoming free agent has lost himself money, it's Hakeem Nicks.
The talented Giants receiver has simply never lived up to the hype, often because of nagging injuries. This season has been a relatively healthy one for Nicks, but he has been outperformed by the guy below him on the depth chart, Rueben Randle.
Still, Nicks possesses a unique upside that will surely be tantalizing enough for a team to give him a nice contract.
It's going to be an interesting offseason for Anquan Boldin, who has proved his worth yet again in San Francisco. He is 33, though, and the league is trending toward younger, cheaper players.
The only reason Julian Edelman didn't sign a bigger contract than the one-year, $575,000 deal he got from New England is because he was injured too often in the past.
This year, Edelman has been the picture of health. He has also proven to provide Wes Welker-like production at times. He might be diminutive, but Edelman will be well worth the investment for a team looking for a slot receiver and punt returner.
Unfortunately for him, Jeremy Maclin got injured in the wrong season.
The talented receiver was lost for the year just before he was set to become a free agent. That will likely lower his price tag significantly, which only means whoever signs him will be getting a relative bargain.
He hasn't quite been a consistent second option in Pittsburgh, but Emmanuel Sanders brings plenty to the table. Why else would the Patriots have tried to pry him away from the Steelers last season?
The Broncos have an embarrassment of riches at receiver and tight end these days, perhaps giving Eric Decker a good reason to leave for greener pastures and more playing time.
James Jones is one of the more underrated commodities at his position, often overshadowed by teammates Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb despite outproducing them many weeks.
The 6'1" receiver will be a great No. 2 receiver somewhere, though the Packers could certainly convince him to stay and keep that offense locked and loaded.
