We are three days in to the NFL free agency period, but there are a lot of top players and solid contributors left on the open market. Now that the heavy spending has been done, it is the appropriate time for teams to come swooping in and get players at a discounted and bargain value. While the big name signings to start free agency get the attention, it is the later acquisitions that fill out a roster which are key to winning a championship.
Mike Wallace was the big winner at the position with his massive contract from the Miami Dolphins on day one, but since his signing a number of quality receivers have been signed. Wes Welker and Danny Amendola were two of the most recently signed pass catchers, but there are a number of receiving threats available and some potential No. 1 targets.
