Who is the best free-agent fit for your team?
Is it bringing back one of your own? Or could it be signing a high-priced, top-ticket player? It could even be a player who fits a need at a cheap price, especially for cap-restricted teams.
The best players in this market will get paid, and they will have a lot of suitors. How many teams would love to add the speed of Steelers receiver Mike Wallace or the pass-rush ability of a quality defensive end?
That's why in playing our 2013 version of "Match the Free Agent," some players fit with more than one team.

In your ideal world, who fits best for your team? I took a shot at some of the players I think work best for all 32 teams -- including some teams bringing back their own.
Best match: Jake Long, T, Dolphins
Yes, he would cost a lot of money. But he can still play at a high level and it would put an end to all the problems at left tackle and lets them move Levi Brown inside.
Best match: Sam Baker, T, Falcons
With the way they throw the ball, getting Baker back to protect Matt Ryan's blind side makes sense. Baker had his best season in 2012 when he was finally healthy.
Best match: Dannell Ellerbe, LB, Ravens
Keeping your own makes sense here since Ray Lewis is retiring and Ellerbe is on the verge of stardom.
Best match: Mike Wallace, WR, Steelers
They lack a deep threat at receiver and he would team with Stevie Johnson to give the Bills a nice 1-2 punch. Of course, they need a quarterback with an arm big enough to reach him.
Best match: Desmond Bryant, DT, Oakland
The middle of their defense is horrible. They could use a rising player inside and, despite his arrest, Bryant is that type of player.
Best match: Long
Have you watched the number of hits Jay Cutler takes? If they could get Long, it would upgrade a position of need for a team that will throw it more under Marc Trestman.
Best match: Glover Quin, S, Texans
They need a player next to Reggie Nelson and Quin is a former corner who can cover and play in the box.
Best match: Paul Kruger, OLB, Ravens
They are going to a 3-4 scheme and they need a pass rusher on the outside. This would also weaken a division opponent.
Best match: Andy Levitre, G, Bills
Did you see the interior of that offensive line in 2012? They have to do a better job of protecting Tony Romo. Too bad Levitre will cost too much.
Best match: Ellerbe
They need a nasty, fast player in the middle of their defense. Ellerbe is that guy. A corner could also be in play.
Best match: Michael Bennett, DE, Buccaneers
Best match: Dashon Goldson, S, 49ers
With Charles Woodson moving on, they need to get a safety who can lead the back-end players. Goldson could be that guy.
Best match: Greg Jennings, WR, Packers
They have Andre Johnson for the deep game, now they need a smart route runner on the inside. Jennings can be that guy.
Best match: Andre Smith, T, Bengals
They have to improve the right side of their line. Smith would be an immediate upgrade and would help keep Andrew Luck clean.
Best match: Sebastian Vollmer, T, Patriots
Their right tackle spot has been horrible for years. Vollmer could step in and fix it. If Eugene Monroe were to leave via free agency next year, he could move to the left side.
Best match: Sean Smith, CB, Dolphins
They need a corner to pair with Brandon Flowers and Smith makes a ton of sense. He is big and can play man. Their coverage was down in 2012.
Best match: Wallace
They have to get some weapons for Ryan Tannehill. Wallace's speed is really needed for an offense that lacked it last season.
Best match: Jennings
Best match: Wallace
Does any team need speed more than the Patriots? They have to do a better job of stretching the field.
Best match: Kruger
They have to get help for their 3-4 outside rush game. Kruger could do that.
Best match: Phil Loadholt, T, Vikings
Best match: Connor Barwin, OLB, Texans
The pass rush is pathetic. Barwin is coming off a down season, but he was productive two years ago.
Best match: Andre Smith
They had major issues at right tackle last season and Smith would give them a nice 1-2 combo with Jared Veldheer.
Best match: Quin
The safety play has been bad the past couple of seasons. Quin would help mitigate that. He can cover and play up near the line.
Best match: Keenan Lewis, CB, Steelers
This is a case where bringing one of your own back makes too much sense. Lewis is 26 and coming off his best season at a position of need. They are nuts if they think William Gay is the answer.
Best match: Loadholt
Jeff Fisher loves to pound the football. Getting a right tackle like Loadholt would help that become a reality.
Best match: Long
Fix that left tackle spot, will you? Philip Rivers took a beating last year and until the left tackle spot is solidified it will continue that way.
Best match: Goldson
Keeping your own here is the smart move. He fits what they want to do. And he knows the system.
Best match: John Abraham, DE, Falcons
Best match: Bennett
I know they like their young defensive ends, but Adrian Clayborn is coming off a torn ACL. Why not just keep Bennett -- if the price is right?
Best match: Avril
This is a team looking for help for their pass rush. Avril could help in a big way.
Best match: Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, CB, Eagles
Jim Haslett would love to add an aggressive man-cover corner like Rodgers-Cromartie.
