    Free agency phase two is now open (as of last night)! The deadline for phase two of free agent bidding is today at 11PM EST. Good luck and happy bidding!

    Please keep all bids limited to the length of contract that particular player is asking for (or less)! We don't need to see 30+ year old players being offered 7 year deals! ;)

    I just notice something interesting, i signed 4 players and for some reason the owner money went to a negative number -4.8M and even thought i have 11.8M in cap space ( 7M for rookies and 4.8M for FA) i does not allow me to sign any more FA. I belive the owners money is for the bonus money thats paid the 1st year.

    Are u guys running into the same thing?

    yeah i just confirm the 1st year bonus money comes out of the Owners number. I went to the owners screen and under finances it show the staff salary plus the bonus money paid out witch was 21.1M, thus putting my team -4.8M on the owner salary.

    Now i try to offer a contract to a FA without a signing bonus and it would not let me either. Hopefully, i can sign some FA in the next phase to fill out my roster.

    thankfully, i was able to sign the key guys i wanted...

    I just added it up, and the total showing on the owners expense sheet is the sum of all bonus money due over the term of the contract of the 4 players i signed. The whole amount not just the 1st year's bonus money.

    I guess its important to create revenue during the season to payout these signing bonuses once the off-season hits. Its a cool feature that's for sure.

    If ur owner doesn't have any money you can't sign anybody.

    I think you wouldn't be able to sign anybody until games are played and you can earn money but Jim can confirm

    Bonus money is paid in it's entirety when the contract is signed. there is no recouping it by cutting a player, although you will still face a cap penalty (since the cap hit for the bonus is spread evenly throughout the length of the contract).

    Also, when you sign Free Agents in the Preseason or regular season, there are no bonuses, so you won't have the same roadblock.
