When the N.F.L. free agency period gets underway Tuesday afternoon, expect these 10 players to be the biggest targets on the market.
- Peyton Manning - You may have heard a little bit about this guy on the open market recently.
- Mario Williams - If it weren't for Peyton Manning, Williams would be the talk of free agency. A top draft pick and one of the best pass rushers in the league. $$$
- Carl Nicks - Says he wants to be the highest paid offensive lineman ever. Might make some question his motives.
- Vincent Jackson - Big, fast, great hands. He's got it all. Will probably be the highest paid of the free agent wide receivers
- Mike Wallace - Although a restricted free agent, many see Wallace headed out of Pittsburgh.
- Stephen Tulloch - Contributed largely to Detroit's run defense
- Cortland Finnegan - Probably the top CB on the market, with Brandon Carr a close second
- Matt Flynn - Good in a couple games, but still very unproven. Career could mirror the likes of Scott Mitchell, Charlie Whitehurst, and the like.
- Jeremy Mincey - Probably the best free agent you've never heard of
- Paul Solai - The nose tackle has quitely become one of the league's great big men.
