    The real shopping period begins the 9th.

    http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/story/free-agency-question-and-answer-available-players-030513
    Q
    : How is the NFL trying to remedy the ongoing tampering problem? A: Teams are prohibited from displaying direct interest in a free-agent-to-be while that player is still under contract to another team. That hasnít prevented some of them from doing so anyway. In an effort to solve the issue, the NFL has created a three-day window (March 9 to 11) in which clubs can legally speak with agents representing players from other teams to express interest and gauge market value. This should lead to a flurry of the top free agents quickly signing contracts elsewhere or being re-signed by their respective teams before the market opens

    players can legally talks to agents but not players? I dont see how this changes anything to be honest, they are all doing it anyway.

    rumors and real pricing can begin, and this pretty much means, mike wallace will have his club picked out day one barring any surprise bids.

    It seems to me that it will be like the NBA b/c for example Ray Allen agreed to a few days before he was allowed sign it & make it official with the Heat. I'm hoping most of the #'s get done on the weekend so come Tuesday we are ready for the signings!

    This actually helps Miami big time. If we are out on bid for Wallace we can go after Jennings or cook. This gives Ireland the upper hand because he is conservative by nature so this will allow him to reach a back up plan before free agency starts.. If need be
    Everyone has a plan until they get punched in the mouth

    The great thing is we will find out what teams are serious about the free agents we all covet.
