NFL 2013: Free agency's biggest stars hardly are franchise makers

Most of the big names hitting NFL free agency aren't big stars anymore.

When full free agency begins Tuesday at 4 p.m. EDT, with all 32 teams under the $123 million salary cap, the bidding wars might be furious for a while. Or perhaps not, considering the dangers of signing players beyond their peak years to rich deals that can hamstring teams financially in the future.
