Long before the NFL lockout was set in place by the league on Mar. 11, the normal yearly questions about where the game’s top free-agent players will land has been the top head-scratcher for football fans and experts.
The NFL had a pulse on April 25 when U.S. District Court Judge Susan Richard Nelson invalidated the lockout and ordered the league to resume their day-to-day operations. However, after four days of life for players, fans and league experts, the NFL went flatline again on April 29 when the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals granted a temporary stay of Nelson’s ruling as the lockout was reinstated.
Eventually, the NFL will be alive and well (which could start any day now before the owners' oral arguments begin on June 3) and with the 2011 NFL draft finalized, clubs can concentrate on what moves to make regarding free agency.
With constant speculation of who may go where during this purgatory of an offseason for the NFL, here are the odds on favorite destinations of the top 10 free agents (some new rumors, some familiar).
