Free agency begins on March 11. Three days earlier, teams can start talking to the agents of the looming free agents.

Until then, plenty of communications will occur.

Some will violate the rules. Some won’t. For example, if a player from one team starts working on a player from another team, it’s not a problem — unless it’s happening at the behest of the team that wants to sign the free agent.

Giants safety Antrel Rolle already has commenced the recruitment of Packers tight end Jermichael Finley. Given that Rolle has admitted it publicly, it’s safe to assume the team didn’t covertly put him up to it.
