Tampering period begins when?

I know they said Monday, but does that mean at Midnight tonight? Or is it 4pm tomorrow? Or something else....
I feel like it's already begun lol

Hoping for Norwell to the Giants tomorrow, that would alleviate some stress and kicks things off right.
I was curious too.

It seems FA was recently always on a Monday (I could be wrong) so the tampering period was always on the weekend. But now FA is on a Wednesday, I think, so maybe it starts Monday.

March 12 14: During the period beginning at 12 noon, New York time, on March 12th and ending at 3:59:59 p.m., New York time, on March 14th, clubs are permitted to contact, and enter into contract negotiations with, the certified agents of players who will become Unrestricted Free Agents upon the expiration of their 2017 player contracts at 4:00 p.m., New York time, on March 14. However, a contract cannot be executed with a new club until 4:00 p.m., New York time, on March 14.
Thanks, Ryan

All so confusing lol. One year it's at midnight, then I thought at some point 4pm was a start time, and now noon EST.

Despite this inconsistency, this time of year is always interesting. And there are some teams with a lot of $ to spend. Just hoping we get some Oline help.
