2013 NFL Free Agents: Wide Receivers


2013 NFL Free Agent Positions:
QB | RB | FB | WR | TE | OT | G | C | DE | DT | OLB | ILB | CB | S | K/P | FA Grades | Winners/Losers



2013 NFL Free Agency: Star rating is out of five. Age listing as of Sept. 1, 2013.
Follow me @walterfootball for updates.

  1. Victor Cruz (RFA), WR, Giants. Age: 26.
    Tendered by Giants (1st round)

    Victor Cruz proved that his amazing 2011 season was no fluke, catching 86 balls for 1,092 yards and 10 touchdowns this past year. He carried the receiving corps when Hakeem Nicks was out.

  2. Dwayne Bowe, WR, Chiefs. Age: 28.
    Re-signed with Chiefs (5 years)

    Dwayne Bowe is one of the most overrated players in the NFL. He consistently posts solid fantasy numbers, so people think he's better than he really is. The box score doesn't show that Bowe constantly drops passes and is responsible for interceptions. He's a very good No. 2 wideout, but he's too unreliable to be a top option.



  3. Mike Wallace, WR, Steelers. Age: 27.
    Signed with Dolphins (5 years)

    Mike Wallace is overrated. He has blazing speed, but he's a horribly inefficient receiver. He dropped tons of passes and ranked near the bottom of the NFL in terms of catch percentage among starting wideouts.

  4. Greg Jennings, WR, Packers. Age: 29.
    Signed with Vikings

    Greg Jennings is a talented receiver, but he may be overvalued because he's always worked with either Brett Favre or Aaron Rodgers. Plus, he tends to get banged up quite frequently.

  5. Wes Welker, WR, Patriots. Age: 32.
    Signed with Broncos

    Wes Welker produces like crazy fantasy numbers, but he's also one of the league's most overrated players. There's a reason why the Patriots wouldn't show him the money. He drops lots of passes and is arguably a product of the system. He's also about to enter his mid-30s. Still, he's a highly effective slot receiver.

  6. Danario Alexander (RFA), WR, Chargers. Age: 25.
    Tendered by Chargers (original)

    Danario Alexander exploded after signing with the Chargers in the middle of the season, catching 36 balls for 624 yards and six touchdowns in nine games. He has tons of potential, but he is also a big risk because of his extensive injury history.



  7. Danny Amendola, WR, Rams. Age: 27.
    Signed with Patriots (5 years)

    Danny Amendola is one of the top slot receivers in the NFL, but he's incredibly brittle. He can't be trusted with a big contract.

  8. Brandon Lloyd, Patriots. Age: 32.
    Brandon Lloyd's 1,448-yard 2010 campaign seems like a decade ago. Lloyd has been pretty mediocre the past two seasons. He just couldn't generate any chemistry with Tom Brady, as he's been accused of trying to avoid contact and having a negative attitude. Worst of all, he'll be 32 in July, so he's unlikely to have another 1,000-yard season.

  9. Brian Hartline, WR, Dolphins. Age: 26.
    Re-signed with Dolphins (5 years, $30.7 million)

    Brian Hartline made a name for himself by catching 12 balls for 253 yards and a touchdown at Arizona in Week 4, but remarkably didn't find the end zone after that. Hartline is perfectly fine as a No. 2 wideout, but he's too inconsistent to be a top option.

  10. Julian Edelman, WR/KR, Patriots. Age: 27.
    Re-signed with Patriots

    Julian Edelman is a nice weapon to have on offense and special teams, but he spends too much time on the injury report.

  11. Titus Young, WR, Rams. Age: 24.
    There's no questioning Titus Young's talent, but he's a major head case. He started off last season by punching teammate Louis Delmas. He then sabotaged a game against the Packers by intentionally lining up in the wrong spots. And to top it off, he continued to mouth off on Twitter during the offseason, indicating that he hadn't learned his lesson. I wouldn't touch him, but there might be a coach out there who can turn him around.

  12. Darrius Heyward-Bey, WR, Raiders. Age: 26.
    Signed with Colts (1 year)

    Darrius Heyward-Bey caught 64 balls for 975 yards in 2011, but he's not a very good receiver. He has terrible hands and run awful routes. He does have upside though with his size and speed, so maybe some great coaching could get the most out of him.

  13. Michael Spurlock, WR/KR, Chargers. Age: 30.
    Signed with Lions

    Michael Spurlock scored two special-teams touchdowns in 2012. He also recorded seven catches for 64 yards in one game as a slot receiver.

  14. Emmanuel Sanders (RFA), WR, Steelers. Age: 26.
    Steelers match tender offer

    Emmanuel Sanders caught 44 balls for 626 yards and a touchdown in his third season. He could be thrust into the starting lineup if Mike Wallace leaves.

  15. Laurent Robinson, WR, Jaguars. Age: 28.
    Laurent Robinson has been medically cleared to play following his multiple concussions. With that being the case, he deserves a spot on a roster to compete for a No. 2 role. Teams need to be cautious, however, given Robinson's extensive injury history.

  16. Ted Ginn, KR, 49ers. Age: 28.
    Signed with Panthers

    Ted Ginn didn't score a special-teams touchdown for the first time since 2008, but was still effective taking back punts.

  17. Joshua Cribbs, KR, Browns. Age: 30.
    Signed with Raiders

    Joshua Cribbs maintained decent return averages in 2012, but he has just one special-teams touchdown in the past three years. He'll be 30 in June.

  18. David Nelson, WR, Bills. Age: 26.
    Signed with Browns

    David Nelson caught 61 passes for 658 yards in his second season back in 2011. Unfortunately, he tore his ACL in the opening week this year. He should be ready for kickoff weekend of 2013.

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
