Which players will be narrowing down their potential destination lists during the free agent negotiation period? Keep it here to find out.

NFL: Preseason-Oakland Raiders at Green Bay Packers Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

On Tuesday at 12 noon Eastern time, the NFL will officially allow its teams to begin speaking with the representation of unrestricted free agents with expiring contracts. The so-called “legal tampering” period kicks off free agency, and we can expect several of the big-name players to have their contracts all but finalized when the new league year officially begins at 4:00 PM Eastern on Thursday.

Reports should come out flying quickly on Tuesday afternoon as we run up through until Thursday. We at APC will keep you updated on as many of these relevant reports as we can throughout the next few days — especially the ones relating to the Green Bay Packers — so keep it here as we try to keep track of everything around the league.
