Advance Deadline: Sunday 8:00 PM EST It is very important that you DO NOT PLAY your game on the console even though it says we're in week 1. Probably common sense, but just a warning. DO NOT BID on any FAs at this time other than "dummy ones" described below. I can only allow or disallow FA signing, and I must leave it open for people to fill dummy spots. Don't sign anyone other than that. We will use this time to allow you to make decisions on how to shape your roster. XFN is going to tell you which players need to be re-signed in red. You STILL must be at 47 players or less prior to the draft. Must follow the roster requirements for each position posted here. If you cannot meet those requirements you must sign a "dummy" player, which you will use as a placeholder until you sign a player you actually want during the normal free agency period. New contracts given to players must not exceed 3 years. If I find that a player was erroneously given a longer contract, they will be released into Unrestricted Free Agency as penalty after the draft. If a player is rated 85 or above, you MUST give him a 40% Signing Bonus. Trades CANNOT be consummated during this time period. They can be proposed but not accepted. Any new trades made during this time will have to be explicitly reported to me so that I can ensure they are finalized BEFORE the draft. I had to cut a few team's players that weren't 47 or under (minus the teams with guys retiring), if I cut someone in error, feel free to sign them back. I mostly cut ~69 ovr or below players. I have added the 7% increase to the cap. You can now view the proper draft order, and all of the draftees on XFN. This gives you a few days to build a draft board and make trades. Mock draft anyone?
