The NFL has never seen such a free agent feeding frenzy—with only a few days to negotiate with players, teams are frantically trying to snap up the best remaining free agent players on the market.
The top players will have multiple offers that they and their agents will have to sort through, but here are the top five free agents left on the market and where they could be heading.

According to NFL.com's Michael Lombardi (h/t ProFootballTalk), the Houston Texans are the leaders in landing this annual All-Pro player.
The Texans are looking to upgrade a poor pass defense under new defensive coordinator Wade Phillips, and Asomugha would be the perfect fit.

According to Jason LaConfora of the NFL Network, the Oakland Raiders are targeting Antonio Cromartie to fill the hole left by departing corner back Nnamdi Asomugha.
Davis loves Cromartie's aggressive style of play and man coverage ability—this attitude and ability would fit in perfectly for Raider Nation.
Cullen Jenkins: Redskins

The Washington Redskins are interested in Cullen Jenkins, and Jenkins is interested in the Redskins, according to Mike Jones of the Washington Post in early July.
With the trade of DL Albert Haynesworth, there is a glaring need for a defensive end in the Redskins' 3-4 defense.
Owner Dan Snyder has never been shy about throwing money around, and Jenkins wants to make lots of it...voila.
Aubrayo Franklin: Chiefs

Rivers McCown from Football Outsiders has called the move of NT Aubrayo Franklin to the Chiefs as one of the "best fits" in the NFL free-agent season.
Franklin has been an anchor in the middle of the 49ers' defense the last two seasons. LB Patrick Willis credits Franklin for allowing him to be a tackling machine.
Kansas City has a legitimate opportunity to win the AFC west, and Franklin would definitely help make that happen.
Ahmad Bradshaw: Broncos

According to Sports Illustrated writer Peter King, Bradshaw will land in Denver.
While the Giants want to keep him, at this point they don't want to spend the money that Bradshaw is asking.
Bradshaw would provide a proven complement at running back to help the continued development of QB Tim Tebow.
