What is the NFL tampering window? Everything to know about the tampering period in Free Agency

We have made it!!

The NFL’s legal tampering period opens today at NOON, Eastern Time.

That means free agency officially beings, even though the team cannot sign the player until Wednesday, March 13th.

For unrestricted free agents testing the waters, this two-day period offers a bit more clarity on their respective markets.

The NFL’s legal tampering window is a two-day period prior to the start of the new league year, in which teams can speak directly with other players’ representatives and broker deals ahead of the official start of free agency (4 p.m. ET, March 13). The window opens on Monday at noon ET and closes at the start of free agency.

Players cannot visit other teams’ facilities during the tampering window. They cannot speak directly with other organizations’ front offices (that’s left to the agents).
