Now for some disclaimers:

– The overall ratings only tell part of the story and feature no weighting for specific facets of play. For more in-depth analysis, sign up for our PFF Premium Statistics.

– All ratings and snap counts are from the 2012 regular season only and ratings between players of two different positions are not meant to be compared.

– Sorting players by position and ranking won’t necessarily get you the same order we’ve used in some of our articles. That’s because we’ve done more to put the numbers into context. The grades require intelligence applied to them.

– This list of players consists only of players who ended the season on a roster in 2012 and are now free agents, or players who have been released during the offseason; players that are exclusive rights free agents are not included. Players with an * after their UFA status are players under contract with an option for it to void this offseason.

– If you spot any errors please contact Nathan Jahnke on twitter and he’ll set about fixing it.
