We asked our readers which of the potential free agents set to hit the open market whenever the 2011 league year begins will attract the most attention, and the respondents to our poll overwhelmingly believe Raiders CB Nnamdi Asomugha will be the top FA target.

Asomugha, who just turned 30 and is a three-time Pro Bowler, is widely considered to be one of the top cover corners in the league. With several teams in need of a big-time cover corner, it's no surprise that PFW's readers selected Asomugha, who received 72.3 percent of the responses.

The next choice, according to respondents, was Vikings WR Sidney Rice, who received 6.2 percent of the responses. The rest of the votes went to Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams (5.0 percent), Jets WR Santonio Holmes (4.0 percent), Packers DL Cullen Jenkins (2.8 percent), Bengals CB Johnathan Joseph (2.7 percent), Jets CB Antonio Cromartie (2.4 percent), Vikings DE Ray Edwards (2.3 percent), Raiders TE Zach Miller (1.4 percent) and Cowboys OLT Doug Free (1.2 percent).
