    Free agency is now open! The deadline for phase one of free agent bidding is tomorrow (Friday 1/10/14) at 8PM 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! ;)

    ATTENTION:

    Once again, due to a continued issues with owner funds, the Buccaneers owner Jeremy was unable to generate any income significant income during the 2015 season. Because of this, he was unable to resign most of his own players during or after the season.

    We have taken steps to ensure this will not be an issue for Jeremy going forward, and he should now be able to fully participate in contract negotiations from here on out.

    Because of this situation, which was beyond Jeremy's control, we have decided to make the following players OFF LIMITS to the other 31 teams in free agency:

    CB Leonard Johnson
    DT Gerald McCoy
    HB Doug Martin
    K Justin Medlock *UNPROTECTED*
    LB Lavonte David
    LE Da'Quan Bowers
    LG Marcus Cannon
    MLB Mason Foster
    RE Mark Anderson *UNPROTECTED*
    RE Adrian Clayborn *UNPROTECTED*
    RG William Campbell *UNPROTECTED*
    ROLB Andy Studebaker *UNPROTECTED*
    SS Rashad Johnson *UNPROTECTED*
    WR Kevin Ogletree


    DO NOT BID ON OR SIGN THESE PLAYERS! ANY TEAM THAT SIGNS ONE OF THESE PLAYERS WILL BE STUCK WITH ANY PENALTY THEY INCUR AS A RESULT OF HAVING TO IMMEDIATELY RELEASE THEM!

    If the Buccaneers are unable to come to terms with any of these players, they will become regular Free Agents after the draft.

    Once again, we will again afford teams the opportunity to attempt in-season resignings during the simmed season. We did so in our first simmed season (2014) and we felt that it was a success. Remember, you can also utilize that time to get some practice XP with your teams, as well as giving you a couple of opportunities to resign your players in a contract year, prior to the off-season resignings phase.

    I hope this schedule works for the majority of you, to those that have conflicts, I am truly sorry.

    I know this is the favorite time of year for many of us, let's have a great couple of off-seasons!

    Any idea why this keeps happening to the Bucs? Was it because of the stadium rebuild the first owner went through? And if so why did his rebuild put the team so far back, when others seem to be staying afloat?...Just wondering in case I ever decide to get creative and rebuild.

    This past season I paid over $40m in stadium leases. Add to that low merchandise and tickets sales due to market size and income coming in was not enough to cover income out.
