2010 Top NFL Free Agents

Tennessee Titans veteran center Kevin Mawae should be one of the more sought after free agents when the 2010 NFL Free Agency period begins on March 5th

With the 2010 NFL Free Agency period fast approaching (March 5th), I thought that I would put together my top free agents by position. 

Of course a lot of the players list could be affected by a last minute CBA deal, but don’t expect that so the 2010 season will be an uncapped one with over 200 restricted free agents.  Wonder if deep-pocketed owners like Washington Redskins owner Daniel Snyder will be try and become football’s version of George Steinbrenner in an uncapped year.
