    Hey Guys!

    It's that time of the season where we are all thinking about our offseason plans. We want to hit the ground running, so the last few days Emmdotfrisk and myself have put together a handbook detailing what the HK offseason will be. Using the LM site and modifications to the NFL system, we believe we have created a one of a kind offseason. The document is pretty self explanatory but if you have any questions just feel free to ask us.

    Thanks Emm for the time you spent on this with me this week!


    I personally cannot wait for the offseason fellas! Keep up the good work!!

    All the new guys should make sure they look at the offseason handbook and understand how FAs are handled here. Don't wanna throw away your franchise's future because you didn't know what compensation is given to a RFA :)

    Question about RFA tenders. Could someone explain how they work and if all four options are allowed to be used?

    If you win a bid on an RFA, you have one of four options to chose from:

    1. Right of First Refusal + Pick in player’s original draft round — $3,500,000 + Asking price
    2. Right of First Refusal + Second-Round Draft Pick — $3,000,000 + Asking price
    3. Right of First Refusal + First-Round Draft Pick — $2,000,000 + Asking price
    4. Right of First Refusal + First- AND Third-Round Draft Picks — $1,000,000+ Asking price

    We'll use Sam Bradford and this offseason as an example:

    You win the bid for Sam Bradford (RFA). If the Rams decide not to match, you then have to pick an option from the list above. Lets say you chose option 1. That means you'll be giving the Rams your 1st round pick (as Bradford was taken in the 1st round) for the following season (in this case it would be the 2017 draft). Also, $3.5 mil will be added PER YEAR to his contract.

    Obviously in this case, option one wouldnt have been the best choice. Since Bradford was a 1st round pick, you would have been better off going with either option 2 (giving up a 2nd instead of a 1st and a little less money) or option 3 (still giving up a 1st but paying less money).

    That clear it up a bit for ya?
