    There appears to be a glitch with players traded in-season that are in the final year of their contract. They never show up to be resigned and aren't in the list of players to be resigned in the off season either. So, if anyone has had this issue and wants to resign the player, let me know and these players will not be allowed to be signed by another team.

    The List

    QB Cam Newton
    TE Aaron Hernandez

    I could actually keep him under contract but to answer, he most likely will be a FA.

    Tbqh, this is crap. Imo, give them FA 1 MAYBE FA 2 to sign them and if they dont sign they're open to the public. You cant guarantee they would have resigned with the team had they been able to attempt to sign them. Thats the danger of trading for a player thats in the last year of their contract.

    Also, you may argue "Well they could have franchise tagged them". True, but now they get them at a MUCH discounted rate.

    Imo, its not fair just to say nobody else can attempt to bid on them. Give them a FA period or two to "attempt" to sign them, if they dont they're fair game imo.

    The problem with this, is if they dont resign with you, and you end up signing them in the preseason, you're still getting the player (especially a guy like Cam) at a value that would be WAY under tag cost.

    Regardless he would be on the team whether at the right money or not... He would either have accepted this deal that is in FA now or franchised, what 16-20 million?

    I can make an escalated offer on him to counteract what happened.

    I wouldn't be that perturb, but I didn't get an option to offer him a new deal during the season, the first stage of the offseason and didn't get the opportunity to franchise tag him at that point also. Did you know that?

    It really doesnt matter at this point. Just tired of all the bugs throwing kinks in things. I do agree though that you should get first dibs on him. _MG_ needs to withdraw his offer.

    Added TE Aaron Hernandez on the condition of releasing LOLB Shaun Phillips.

    While I don't think this is that big of an issue, we can remedy this easily. Anyone on this list will be given the contract of a franchise tag. So:

    Cam Newton - $19.628 mil
    Aaron Hernandez - $8.272 mil

    I didn't know! I'll withdraw the offer when I get back on Madden. My bad.

    I'm surprised cutler didn't make the list, because he sucks so bad he shouldn't be on a team. Lol

    Hernandez would have looked good in a Rams uniform.
