    The league year begins March 12 at 4:00 pm EST, which is when free agency and trades begin.

    Also, I wouldn't hold my breath over the Packers signing anyone with a recognizable name in free agency, certainly not at the start of free agency. If anything, we'll do like we did last year and wait until after the draft to see who's left and can be had at a discount.

    Alot of the free agency stuff actually happens at the combine. Lots of tampering going on right now.

    Obviously that goes on when you have a player signed 14 minutes after the start of free agency

    Also, stuff will start to leak but the Packers will be one of the last teams that you can reasonably expect to hear about with any legitimate leaks. The Ted administration is notoriously tight-lipped and close to the vest.

    Technically, negotiations with UFAs can begin March 9, which might account for some quick announcements on the 12th. Tampering is certainly plausible.

    Further, there's a distinction between UFAs still under contract until 3/12 vs. players who have already been released. It appears this latter street FA category can make a deal at any time. For example, it has been reported that Canty has received a contract offer from TEN, but declined to continue shopping.

    I have sent a message to you privately. There has been a mix up. From this end at least, there is no hard feelings. A mix up of your english and my english. For my part I apologise to you too. I DO have a sense of humour, honest.

    You see, L.T. ... you need to learn to write with an English accent. :geek: You need to insert silent "U's" and substitute an "s" for a "z" ... my gawd man, didn't you learn anything from Monty Python's Flying Circus? :)
