NFL Trade Rumors:
Peter King of SI.com writes that free agents like WR Greg Jennings and OT Jake Long ”will likely be disappointed” by the kind of interest they’ll find on the open market this year.
King mentions that both Jennings and Long could be impacted by their injury histories and the fact that there are other options available at their respective positions.
King adds that Mike Wallace will be one of the more intriguing players to watch given that he turned down a contract extension from the Steelers that would have paid him $7 million annually.
“I like Mike Wallace,” said one general manager who spoke with King and is in need of a receiver. “But I’m not paying him Vincent Jackson money. Not even close.”
King tosses out the Browns as a potential landing spot for Wallace and believes Lions DE Cliff Avril “should get a big payday.”

According to Tom Pelissero of 1500ESPN.com, Green Bay Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings is looking to make $14 million per season.
I can’t imagine any team giving Jennings that kind of money. He’s simply not worth it. He’s been injured too much over the past couple of seasons and he’s benefited from a great system in Green Bay.
I could see a team overpaying and giving...

After the Dolphins traded away Brandon Marshall last offseason for 10 cents on the dollar, they were left with a bunch of No. 3 receivers, but no real No. 1′s. That may change in 2013.

The St. Louis Rams have several questions surrounding the wide receiver position, as Danny Amendola and Brandon Gibson are both free

If St. Louis does lose Amendola, it doesn'...

Multiple sources tell the Sun-Sentinel Steelers receiverMik...
This past Monday marked the first calendar day NFL teams could franchise tag their free agents ahead of a long offseason. At the moment only five or six names look to be a guaranteed certainty in terms of their future, while the rest of the pool swims freely in doubt.

The main objective for the Miami Dolphins this offseason is to find a new No. 1 receiver to line up opposite Brian Hartline either through the 2013 NFL Draft or 2013 NFL Free Agency.

Free agent wide receiver Greg Jennings hasn’t been able to stay healthy recently
Teams are allowed to begin using the franchise tag today, but don’t look for the Packers to employ that mechanism to ensure keeping Greg Jennings around for another season. Here are some reasons why GM Ted Thompson might be reluctant to guarantee the two-time Pro Bowl wide receiver $10 million for...
According to Peter King of SI.com, the NFL has been “buzzing” since the Colts told defensive end Dwight Freeney they won’t be re-signing him this offseason.
I think the Dwight Freeney release had the league buzzing over the weekend. One GM who was very interested already in former Giant pass rusher Osi Umenyiora told me Freeney would leapfrog Umenyiora on his free-agent board...
