2011 NFL Free Agents: Wide Receivers


2011 NFL Free Agent Positions:
QB | RB | FB | WR | TE | OT | G | C | DE | DT | OLB | ILB | CB | S | K/P | Recap



2011 NFL Free Agency: Star rating is out of five. Age listing as of Sept. 1, 2011.

  1. Santonio Holmes, WR, Jets. Age: 27.
    Re-signed with Jets (5 years, $50 million; $24 million guaranteed)

    Receivers who switch teams tend to struggle, so it's amazing that Santonio Holmes was able to catch 52 balls for 746 yards and six touchdowns in only 11 games. Holmes has a knack for making big catches in important games, so if the Jets have to choose between him and Braylon Edwards, it's really no contest.

  2. Vincent Jackson, WR, Chargers. Age: 28.
    Re-signed with Chargers (1 year, $11.9 million)

    Vincent Jackson amazingly has never caught more than 68 passes in a single season, but with his size (6-5, 230) and downfield ability, he's one of the top physical talents at the wide receiver position in the NFL.



  3. Sidney Rice, WR, Vikings. Age: 25.
    Signed with Seahawks (5 years)

    Sidney Rice is one of the league's top young receivers. He caught 83 balls for 1,312 yards and eight touchdowns in 2009. He's only had one great year, hence just the four stars.

  4. Braylon Edwards, WR, Jets. Age: 28.
    Signed with 49ers (1 year, $3.5 million)

    Braylon Edwards has been pretty good with drops this year, but will that remain the case once he signs a big contract?

  5. Brad Smith, KR/CatQB, Jets. Age: 27.
    Signed with Bills (4 years, $15 million)

    Listed at four stars for his return ability, Brad Smith took two kickoffs to the house in 2010. He also averaged 7.9 yards per carry out of the Wildcat position.

  6. Eric Weems, KR, Falcons. Age: 26.
    Re-signed with Falcons

    Listed at four stars for his special teams ability only, Eric Weems qualified for the Pro Bowl, thanks to a punt and a kickoff return for touchdowns. Weems averaged 27.5 yards on his kickoffs and 12.8 yards per punt return.



  7. Steve Smith, WR, Giants. Age: 26.
    Signed with Eagles (1 year, $4 million; $2 million guaranteed)

    Steve Smith is an outstanding possession receiver; he caught 107 balls for 1,220 yards and seven touchdowns in 2009. Unfortunately, he suffered a nasty knee injury in December and may not be ready for the start of the 2011 season.

  8. Malcom Floyd, WR, Chargers. Age: 29.
    Re-signed with Chargers (2 years, $5 million)

    Malcom Floyd caught 37 balls for 717 yards and six touchdowns in 2010, giving him an amazing 19.4 yards-per-catch average. However, he battled through injuries in the second half of the year and consequently did nothing when Vincent Jackson returned to the lineup.

  9. Lance Moore, WR, Saints. Age: 28.
    Re-signed with Saints (5 years)

    A terrific slot receiver, Lance Moore bounced back from an injury-plagued 2009 campaign to catch 66 balls for 763 yards and eight touchdowns this season.

  10. James Jones, WR, Packers. Age: 27.
    Re-signed with Packers (3 years)

    James Jones has enormous talent and potential. Will he ever put it together to become a reliable starter?

  11. Mike Sims-Walker, WR, Jaguars. Age: 26.
    Signed with Rams (1 year)

    Mike Sims-Walker had a very good year in 2009 (63 catches, 869 yards, 7 TDs), but struggled with various leg injuries the past two seasons. He's a quality No. 2 wideout if he can stay healthy. That's a big if, however.

  12. Santana Moss, WR, Redskins. Age: 32.
    Re-signed with Redskins (3 years, $15 million; $6 million guaranteed)

    Santana Moss caught 93 balls for 1,115 yards and six touchdowns last year. However, he'll be 32 in June - an age which usually marks the rapid decline of speedy receivers.

  13. Jacoby Jones, WR, Texans. Age: 27.
    Re-signed with Texans (3 years, $10.5 million; $3 million guaranteed)

    Jacoby Jones has been inconsistent throughout his career, but caught 22 balls for 287 yards and a touchdown in the team's final four games. Perhaps a sign of things to come?

  14. Danny Amendola (RFA), WR, Rams. Age: 25.
    Tendered by Rams

    Danny Amendola caught 85 balls for 689 yards and three touchdowns this season, establishing himself as a quality slot receiver.

  15. Roy Williams, WR, Cowboys. Age: 29.
    Signed with Bears (2 years)

    Roy Williams was a major disappointment in Dallas, as he never came close to matching his 82-catch, 1,310-yard 2006 campaign. Someone will take a shot on him based on his potential, but I wouldn't take that chance.



  16. Derrick Mason, WR, Ravens. Age: 37.
    Signed with Jets (1 year)

    Despite his age, Derrick Mason is a solid No. 2 possession wideout, serving as Joe Flacco's favorite receiver. It'll be surprising if the Ravens don't bring Mason back at a cheaper price - though there's always the possibility that Mason retires, which is something he's been threatening to do for quite some time.

  17. Plaxico Burress, WR, Giants. Age: 34.
    Signed with Jets (1 year, $3 million)

    Plaxico Burress has been out of football for two years, and he was slowing down even before he went to prison.

  18. Terrell Owens, WR, Bengals. Age: 37.
    Terrell Owens proved that he still has it, catching 72 balls for 983 yards and nine touchdowns in 2010. However, he's such a headache that the Bengals don't even want him anymore. At this point, it's hard to imagine anyone signing Owens.

  19. Jerricho Cotchery, WR, Jets. Age: 29.
    Signed with Steelers (1 year)

    Jerricho Cotchery is a very good slot receiver when healthy. The problem is that he's coming off back surgery. He's reportedly healthy, but back injuries tend to linger and re-surface. Cotchery is a risk.

  20. Steve Breaston, WR, Cardinals. Age: 28.
    Signed with Chiefs (5 years)

    Steve Breaston's yardage totals the past three years: 1,006, 712 and 718. Unfortunately, he just can't stay healthy.

  21. Mark Clayton, WR, Rams. Age: 29.
    A complete bust in Baltimore, Mark Clayton had an instant rapport with Sam Bradford, catching 22 balls for 300 yards and two touchdowns in four games before suffering a season-ending knee injury.

  22. Legedu Naanee, WR, Chargers. Age: 27.
    Signed with Panthers

    Legedu Naanee is a talented receiver, but didn't play much this season because of various injuries.

  23. Michael Spurlock, KR, Buccaneers. Age: 28.
    Michael Spurlock averaged 25.7 yards per kick return in 2010, scoring one touchdown in the process.

  24. Randy Moss, WR, Titans. Age: 34.
    Announced retirement

    Randy Moss is done. Unlike Terrell Owens, he has not worked unbelievably hard to keep his body in shape. There's no reason any NFL team should be interested.

  26. Michael Jenkins, WR, Falcons. Age: 29. -- Signed with Vikings (3 years)

You're wrong about Steve Smith walt. He had a down year but he has plenty left in the tank, esp. going to a team that has other weapons. Think about it, All Cam had last year were him, Olsen, and others mixed in occasionally. He will thrive as the 2nd or 3rd option, especially out of the slot.

I would love the addition of julian Edelman and micheal oher or captain munneryln to the houston texans now I dont know if the Texans can afford both edleman and munnerlyn but if we can I feel that's the way to go but if I could only get its Edelman especially with the departure of daniels and if graham leaves at least you still can say you have a good security blanket in edleman,munnerlyn is a good physical corner with range he would fit nice.on side of jjo normally I would say I dont know if the Texans would move on from kareem jackson but due to skeptical play on the outsideiI can see this happening and oher would be a nice rt in Houston he blocks with power and when focused he showcases good technique but in Baltimore he had numerous lapses but under o brien I do see those lapses also if I was the Texans I wouldn't sign josh.mccown I would rather draft two qbs in coach them up to my liking or send a fourth round pick or lower to the browns for brian hoyer a qb who has played in the system who has had success who is a good leader.n.who.was great as a starter before injury this season but him back with o brien the Texans can start the off this year a great chance to succeed

I agree with Jason on Baldwin. He really came on late and has proven to be a sure handed WR.He would be the best value out of any of these other guys

Doug Baldwin is underrated on this list. He had the best hands all season for the Hawks and made big plays when they needed him. He should be #5 on this list.

I'd love for the Bears to ditch Hester and take a chance on Maclin. If he could ever get healthy, he could be a great weapon to have (HUGE IF though). Either that or grab McCluster.

If the bears can't resign Devin Hester to a 1 year deal we should go after Dexter McCluster to replace him and to play the slot
