Default NFL free agent negotiations begin at midnight (tonight)

In case you didn't know...


NFL free agent negotiations begin at midnight

A new three-day NFL version of Midnight Madness kicks off at midnight ET as Friday turns to Saturday.

It amounts to a negotiation preseason for agents and teams to shop the market prior to free agency's true beginning when deals can be signed at 4 p.m. ET Tuesday.

During the three-day negotiating prelude, a prospective unrestricted free agent cannot visit with another club (other than his current one) or travel to other team facilities. And no direct contact is permitted between the player and any employee or representative of a club.

The new rule provides a legalized, NBA-like window when agents can talk to other teams in an aboveboard manner, dissuading what had been a wild west mentality of under-the-table deal making

Can you imagine all of the nonsense that's going to be thrown around in the Twitterverse? Florio is popping Viagra so he can keep his hardon for the next three days.

Is there any way to see (via Twitter & such) exactly which city/state Wallace is in?

Is he in Miami? is he in Minnesota?

let the frenzy begin...

NFL Free Agency 2013: Legal Tampering Begins at Midnight

During that time, no actual contracts can be signed. Instead, teams can work with agents on specifics that can be made official at 4 p.m. on Tuesday. Agents are important in this time period, as contact with players on other teams is still disallowed. Any negotiation with representatives of restricted or franchised players is also forbidden.

This essentially means free agency begins at midnight. Even though no contracts can officially be signed until Tuesday, there is nothing to stop teams from agreeing to contracts that can physically be signed in a few days.

But he was released so he wasn't part of the free agency no-tampering gimmick.
