    Hey guys!

    As we head into our third offseason I wanted to clarify some of the upcoming rule changes within the offseason. As we transitioned into Coach Mode, we as an admin team (Guy, Ry, Myself) decided to design some parameters for the salary cap and roster management. The Trade Committee will be providing help on checking all teams and salary caps. I will be setting up a google doc during the week.

    1. Roster Minimum can only go below 48 players during the Free Agency stages.
    2. Your team cannot carry more than 25 mil in Salary Cap space. Meaning the Leagues salary cap floor will be 25 million less than the ceiling.
    3. All players 75+ OVR (meaning 75 or above), must have a yearly bonus.
    4. All bonuses have to be at a minimum 25% of the contract, and at a maximum 30% of the contract.
    For Example: A 4 year deal at 4 million a year, results in a minimum of 1 million in bonus.
    5. All contracts have to be no longer than 4 year deals, except for 90+ ovr players.

    Now I know some of this is confusing. We can walk you through what you need help with. I appreciate all that you guys do and thank you for having patience in me. I know I have not been around as much lately.

    You cant offer someone a deal shorter than 4 years? Whats the reasoning behind this? Not trying to argue, just understand as it doesnt make sense for some of the veteran players you might try to sign in FA as depth.

    It has been that way since day 1. Just because we are not simming seasons, so we don't want guys giving 6, and 7 year deals.
