The tampering window ahead of NFL free agency kicks off at noon on Saturday. It means that teams are allowed to begin discussions with teams, but nothing can be executed till free agency starts on Tuesday.
From Pro Football Talk:
“Beginning at 12:00 noon ET on Saturday, March 8 and ending at 3:59:59 p.m. ET on Tuesday, March 11, clubs are permitted to contact, and enter into negotiations with, the certified agents of players who will become Unrestricted Free Agents upon the expiration of their 2013 player contracts at 4:00 p.m. ET on March 11. However, a contract cannot be executed with a new club until 4:00 p.m. ET on March 11.” (Emphasis added.)
