As it goes right now, you can start talking to your own free agents as soon as tomorrow, but you can't actually sign them until Friday at this point. Even then the contract won't be officially official until all the parties and courts sign off on the deal which will be next week.

So basically the Steelers can start talking to Ike Taylor tomorrow and laying the ground work for a deal, and also Ike can talk to other teams too. You can come to an agreement before Friday but they can't actually sign it until then.
