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!
if I was a betting man id bank it that Jennings isn't in miamis radar
Basically we can start negotiating but cant release a contract out till tuesday. Tuesday Mike Wallace will be signed and pretty early into free agency
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
Does it start at midnight?
The great thing is we will find out what teams are serious about the free agents we all covet.
March 9th is also the start of the media's , see if sticks to the wall festival.
When this period actually begins hasn't been real clear depending on who you listen to. I read one place that it starts at midnight Saturday night(so really Sunday morning), the Palm Beach post just wrote it is 4:00PM on Saturday and I heard Drew Rosenhaus on WQAM saying it starts Friday night at midnight(really Saturday morning).
Believe Drew Nubs.
Im sure Phins and Wallace have a deal in principal already
Sean Smith - DB - Dolphins
ESPN's Adam Schefter estimated on NFL32 that Sean Smith will command in the range of $7 million to $7.5 million annually in free agency.
Per Schefter, Smith is widely viewed around the league as the top cornerback available. We prefer Aqib Talib, and perhaps teams would if he were cleaner off the field. Smith, who played college ball at Utah, is squeaky clean and only 25 years old. Look for the Chiefs, Eagles, Buccaneers, and perhaps Jaguars to contact Smith when the negotiating period opens Friday at midnight.
Mar 7 - 5:36 PM
when the negotiating period opens Friday at midnight.
That quote caught my eye friday at midnight thats cool there tryin this.
just to speed up the signing process more
Can't wait, we should have an idea of who we want this weekend.
