    Even though there is a lot of questions on whether or not there will be any football this coming September, free agency is still ready to roll. Many teams are gearing up to bring in some new faces in order to bolster their chances at winning the Super Bowl.

    However, many teams need to approach some of these highly-touted free agents with caution. 

    Here are the three most overrated wide receiver free agents this upcoming offseason. 

1. Terrell Owens

    Terrell Owens is far past his prime, as indicted by his last two seasons with the Buffalo Bills and Cincinnati Bengals.

    Although both teams had very underwhelming seasons, respectively, Terrell Owens also had his worst seasons since his NFL debut.

    Owens saw dips in his numbers across the board, and at 37, there is a serious concern if he can perform at a high level again in the NFL.

    If T.O. did have some gas left in the tank, then there is still a question of his attitude affecting the chemistry of any healthy locker room. 

2. Braylon Edwards

    Braylon Edwards had another very underwhelming season with the New York Jets. Although Edwards has always had the physical abilities to be a great receiver in the NFL, it has yet to translate onto the field for a whole season.

    Edwards also continued to have problems catching the ball this season, which has been a well-documented problem his whole career.

    Edwards' consistency has always been called into question, and the 28-year-old could still demand big bucks. Although he has shown flashes of greatness, for his price, you need a player you can rely on game-in and game-out. 

3. Randy Moss

    Randy Moss had, hands down, the single worst season of his career. One could argue that this could be because Kerry Collins/Vince Young were delivering the ball to the Marshall phenom, but it looks like Moss is past his prime.

    However, Moss has been known to only work his hardest when playing with a winning team. If Moss is able to return to somewhere where he will give maximum effort, like New England, he could make everyone eat their words.

    But once again, this will be a rare situation. To the other 25 teams that are non-contenders, stay away from the 34 year-old whose phenomenal career will ensure him a fat check today.
