Free Agency officially begins on at midnight EST on Friday February 1st and ends at midnight on Thursday February 28th (although I suspect it won't last that long!).
Remember, we are using Walter Football (click on off-season needs for each team) to determine Free Agents. The top FIVE Free Agents from each team will be entered into the Free Agency pool. Everyone else on the list you keep by default (unless you want to cut/trade them).
By now you should have tagged your Franchise players and any Restricted Free Agents you would like to keep. If not then it is too late and they enter the Free Agent pool.
To clarify how this is going to work:
I hope that answers all of your questions. I'm going to put up a separate Free Agency discussion thread - hopefully we can just keep this one for bids themselves.
Obviously if you still have trades to conduct they should be announced in the discussion thread.
