It's not quite "Supermarket Sweep," but NFL teams are certainly tweaking their shopping lists this week.
When the clock strikes midnight on Friday, clubs will be permitted to start contract negotiations with the agents of players who will be unrestricted free agents at the end of the current league year, which culminates at 4 p.m. ET on March 12.
Following is a look at the top 50 unrestricted free agents available. No franchise tags and no restricted guys here, these are players who can sign on the dotted line next week and never look back.
You won't see big names like Charles Woodson, Ed Reed or Osi Umenyiora on the list because age is a big factor -- perhaps the biggest -- in weighing how NFL teams value potential targets.
Other veterans like John Abraham, Dwight Freeney and Richard Seymour made the cut because their games translate a little better toward situational football, upping their values in a one- or two-year window.
So here it is -- The Sports Network's Top 50 NFL Free Agents:
1. Mike Wallace, WR, Pittsburgh - True home run threats rarely hit the open market. Wallace, a 2011 Pro Bowl selection, is coming off a down year and is regarded as a bit of an underachiever in Western Pennsylvania. That said, he'll only be 27 when the 2013 season opens and he still has blazing 4.33- second speed in the 40-yard dash.
2. Andre Smith, RT, Cincinnati - Smith's work ethic has always been questioned and his weight is a constant concern, but the former sixth overall pick in 2009 developed into one of the best two or three right tackles in football last season.
3. Jake Long, LT, Miami - When the Dolphins tagged defensive tackle Randy Starks, it meant that Long, a former No. 1 overall pick, would hit the market. Once regarded as one of the premier players at one of the game's most important positions, injury concerns and another potential huge outlay has Miami contemplating life after Long. While he's probably not as good as he once was, Long is hardly ready for the clearance aisle. He's still a top-10 left tackle and that means something.
4. Michael Bennett, DE, Tampa Bay -- Bennett looks like the best all-around defensive end out there. He has the requisite motor, plays the run hard and can get after the quarterback. Bennett may never be elite, but he had nine sacks in 2012 and he's just 27.
5. Cliff Avril, DE, Detroit - Avril is only 26 and is the best pure pass rusher available, amassing 39 1/2 sacks over the past five seasons. He's not as well-rounded as you would like and he's actually a perfect fit for the Lions' wide-9 scheme, but a massive price tag has seemingly scared Detroit away.
6. Greg Jennings, WR, Green Bay - Jennings has proven to be an elite receiver, but injuries and age (he'll be 30 in September) knock him down a bit. The Western Michigan product is certainly the best route runner available and the rare receiver these days who can move from the outside to the slot and back again all while being a difference maker.
7. Dannell Ellerbe, ILB, Baltimore - Super Bowl rings tend to up the price tag on players, but in Ellerbe's case, it's deserved. For all the talk surrounding Ray Lewis during the Ravens' championship run, it was Ellerbe who was the team's best linebacker, and at 26, he's about to enter his prime years.
8 Dashon Goldson, S, San Francisco - The NFC champion 49ers decided to let Goldson hear from other suitors and while Jim Harbaugh almost certainly wants his Pro Bowl safety back in the Bay Area, Goldson should command a huge payday, cause for concern for a player whose greatest attribute is run support, not coverage.
