2013 Free Agency Preview: WRs & TEs
By Matt Horkman

Wide Receivers

Danario Alexander, San Diego Chargers (RFA)
A strong second half of the season elevates Alexander’s value on the market. He caught 37 passes for 658 yards and 7 touchdowns in just 10 games. Restricted free agents normally don’t leave, so look for Alexander to return to San Diego with a chance to prove himself in ‘13, and possibly earn big money next year.

Possible Destination: Chargers

Danny Amendola, St. Louis Rams
The Rams would love to re-sign Amendola, who is coming off an injury-plagued season. He’s only averaged 8.8 yards per reception, which is a pathetic amount. Nevertheless, he’s a viable slot receiver, so he’ll get looks with teams looking to fill that specific role.

Possible Destinations: Broncos, Lions, Patriots, & Rams

Victor Cruz, N.Y. Giants (RFA)
Despite Cruz’s availability, the Giants reportedly are making WR Hakeem Nicks their priority, as Cruz’s asking price is too much for the G-Men. An outsider could argue Cruz is worth multiple picks, but there are plenty of solid unrestricted free agent receivers available, and they won’t come at the cost of a draft pick.

Possible Destination: Giants

Brian Hartline, Miami Dolphins
Coming off his first 1,000-yard season, Hartline is a decent option for any team searching for a No. 2 wide receiver. Last year, he burst on the scene with a 12-catch and 253-yard performance against Arizona.

Possible Destinations: Bengals, Bills, Lions, Panthers & Vikings
Greg Jennings
Greg Jennings, Green Bay Packers
Jennings is arguably at the top of a strong free agent class of wide receivers. He’s a crafty route runner, productive, and a better deep threat than advertised. Many rumors link him to Miami, but if he wants to play for a contender, then Seattle would suffice.

Possible Destinations: Colts, Dolphins, Patriots, Seahawks, & Vikings

Randy Moss, San Francisco 49ers
Moss was outspoken on Super Bowl media day about his lack of role in San Francisco. Defenses still respect his speed, so he’s a viable deep threat. He's not returning to San Francisco, so don’t be surprise if the Saints -- one of the teams that worked him out last year -- take a flier on the future Hall of Fame wide receiver.

Possible Destination: Saints

Emmanuel Sanders, Pittsburgh Steelers (RFA)
Coming off a career season, Sanders is an ideal No. 3 wide receiver for any team. He’s also getting better. The Steelers are ready to let Mike Wallace walk, so it’s doubtful they’d let Sanders depart.

Possible Destination: Steelers

Mike Wallace, Pittsburgh Steelers
Wallace is sure to draw plenty of attention on the free agent market. He’s still young (26) and he’s been a productive wide receiver for Ben Roethlisberger. Miami, San Francisco, and Cleveland are possible landing spots. Look for him to set the market early in the process.

Possible Destinations: 49ers, Browns, Bengals, Dolphins, & Patriots

Wes Welker, New England Patriots
The Pats won’t franchise Welker, who is the model of productivity. He’s caught 672 passes since joining New England six years ago, which is an average of 112 per year. Will he get the contract he wants? If the answer is no, then don’t be surprise if New England gets him back.

Possible Destinations: Bengals, Broncos, Patriots, & Rams

Tight Ends

Martellus Bennett, N.Y. Giants
An excellent bargain signing in ‘12, the Giants will have to pony up the cash to retain Bennett. They’ll have a chance to keep him, as he would like to return to New York, but his size and athleticism are rare. He’ll draw plenty of early interest this time through the process.

Possible Destinations: Bears, Dolphins, Falcons, Giants, & Redskins

Jared Cook, Tennessee Titans
Cook’s an underachiever on paper, but the Tennessee tight end has never played with a quality quarterback. Under the right circumstances, he has the skill set to thrive in the NFL.

Possible Destinations: Bears, Dolphins, Rams, Redskins, & Titans

Fred Davis, Washington Redskins
After a productive ‘11 campaign, Davis tore his ACL seven games into this season. He was off to an underwhelming start to begin with, so he’ll have a lot to prove next year.

Possible Destinations: Bears, Dolphins, Falcons, & Redskins

Tony Gonzalez, Atlanta Falcons
Perhaps the greatest tight end of the modern era, Gonzalez will either retire or re-sign with Atlanta. I’m guessing the former, though there’s building momentum behind him playing one more year.

Possible Destination: Falcons

Dustin Keller, N.Y. Jets
Injuries slowed Keller down last season, but it was just two years ago, that he had 815 receiving yards. The Jets wants him back, but Chicago and Miami are also potential landing spots.

Possible Destinations: Bears, Dolphins, Jets, & Rams

Brandon Myers, Oakland Raiders
The Raiders want to keep Myers, who caught 79 receptions for 806 yards last year. He’ll definitely garner plenty of interest on the market, so they'll have to compete to retain him.

Potential Destinations: Bears, Dolphins, Raiders, Rams, & Redskins

Dennis Pitta, Baltimore Ravens (RFA)
After a couple of seasons splitting time with Ed Dickson, Pitta has emerged as Baltimore’s starting tight end. He’s coming off a career season (61 catches, 699 yards, & 7 touchdowns) and has established a strong rapport with Joe Flacco. He’s not going anywhere.

Possible Destination: Ravens

Delanie Walker, San Francisco 49ers
A strong bargain pickup, Walker is a jack-of-all-trades. He has good hands, blocks well, and plays special teams. The 49ers want to re-sign him, but they may have to pay him more than originally estimated to make that happen.

Possible Destinations: 49ers, Buccaneers, Rams, & Redskins
