    And is 29 years old or younger...

    They require a signing bonus equal to 40% of their total salary.

    That means Dominque Rodgers Cromartie - currently sitting with a 65million dollar contract (which by the way cannot be lowered, only raised) is owed a 25.6 million dollar signing bonus.

    I am updating his winning bid right now.

    Players I'll be watching

    DRC
    Greg Jennings
    David Harris
    Joe Flacco
    DHall
    Kevin Kolb
    Mark Sanchez
    Terrell Thomas
    Jason Smith
    Shonn Greene
    Sean Smith

    Please also note that if I see something clearly out of whack on a talented player that does not meet this criteria - I will still enforce the 40% rule.

    I suggest all of you adhere to this rule within the bidding to make things easier to keep track of. Otherwise, once he signs, I will just manually change the contract anyway.

    Wouldnt it be just easier to say you have to keep the the full length of the contract and we dont raise the cap at all from this point forward

    well this was posted after i bid on Jennings and not sure if i am at 40 percent or not. should be close but if you are forcing me to raise then you can take him off my roster with no penalty. or someone can out bid me

    You should hope that you get outbid, otherwise I don't believe you can go back on a bid for a player.

    I know you cant but to add to my bid after the fact is alittle messed up considering the fact the rule was brought in well after the bid. He got a decent bonus but to add to the bonus will be pretty jacked up. Maybe making the rule before fa starts and bidding begins would of been wise

    People started bidding before I even posted.

    When I posted that it was open - I asked for everyone's opinion on the matter and warned everyone that something like this was coming.

    Please see the above for a guideline on what each players signing bonus should be. If these players do not receive the correct amount of signing bonus, they will be dropped from a teams roster (without penalty) and re-added to Free Agency for bid period 2. At this time, the only player that has the correct amount of signing bonus is DRC.

    Expect bid period 2 to begin directly after bid period 1 and again run for 24 hours.

    Reminder, bid period 1 ends at 9pm EST (plus 5-20mins when XFN starts closing bids).

    Just do the math real quick and see if the bid is legit.

    I know people hate that this was implemented but honestly its the only way to keep people from abusing the system.

    I wasn't accusing you of it - but other people will abuse the system, thats why it had to be put in place.

    Jennings bonus should be 20.12 million if his salary is to remain the same.

    I was just talking with Jmustang1968 about this.

    I didn't want to implement it now - as I think currently pending contracts would be affected - but plan to see bid period 2's contracts to be a little bit more even and less back heavy.
