    So HotRod stated the Bonus rules a few days ago in the transaction thread, below is a reminder to offer your player the bonus requirement depending on age and OVR.

    Looking through the transaction list on the CFM, i think there have been a few signings after this was posted that doesnt fit the bonus requirement. At least it looks that way .

    The problem with using the EA site to track is that the EA transaction log combines the new contract with the old contract, so if you sign a guy to a 5-year extension, the log says re-signed for 6 years because of the current year. Then it combines the current bonus and new bonus so very difficult to figure out the %s when looking at salaries page .

    I took a picture of my signing as an example. Marcell reece is an 87 OVR FB and is 28, so his requirement is 40%.

    New Contract

    4 years $2.5 salary
    $1 million bonus

    the $1 million is 40% of the $2.5 million salary

    So his total salary is $2.5 x 4 years = $10 million

    4 years x $1 million = $4 million

    Total contract = $14 million

    If you check the transaction log on the site, you will see that he was signed for 5 years at 15 million which really wasnt the case, the extension was 4 years 14 million .

    So it is pretty simple, as long as the bonus is 40% on this screen, then the bonus will be fine over the full contract.

    So when you post, please post just the extension piece not what you see on the transaction log. Best practice is to make sure you write down the contract you offer when you submit. I know there is a transaction thread, but it would be easier to track if in a separate thread. Thi sis just for re-signs, not in-season free agents.

    We haven't finalized any penalty yet if this rule is violated, but I would think requiring a release would be one of them. Hopefully everybody follows the rule so we wont have any issues .

    Rule as a reminder.
    ==================================================================

    Bonus Requirement for New Contracts

    There will be a Bonus requirement for all new contracts awarded to Free Agents and also existing players that are re-signed during the season. This is to emulate the realism in the NFL when talented players are rewarded with a new long-term contract with a big portion of that contract guaranteed.

    To make this simple, the players that will be subject to a Bonus Requirement will be players regardless of position that are rated 85 and above.

    There will be a % applied to the contract that must be offered during the negotiations stage and the % will be based on the following age tiers:

    · Players rated 85+ that are 30 and under in age will be subject to a 40% Bonus Requirement

    · Players rated 85+ that are 31 and over in age will be subject to a 20% Bonus Requirement

    Age will defined as the age when the negotiations happen. When we say 30 and under, we mean age 30 is included and any age below that.

    Example – 85 Rated Player age 28 – Requests 4 year contract

    Contract Offered 4 years for $30 million total

    40% of $30 million = $12 million. So the contract must have at least 12 million in bonus.

    Essentially, this will equate to $18 million in salary + $12 million bonus money

    Example – 85 Rated Player age 32 – Requests 4 year contract

    Contract Offered 4 years for $30 million total

    20% of $30 million = $6 million. So the contract must have at least $6 million in bonus.

    Essentially, this will equate to $22 million in salary + $6 million bonus money

    ***Reminder to be within Section T.2 policy regarding Free Agents with the maximum contract that can be offered is 1 year addition to what is requested by the Free Agent or Re-signee.

    *** All owners are expected to post their Free Agent Signings and Re-signs during the season in the League Transaction Thread for tracking purposes with calculation if player acquired has a Bonus Requirement. If continued miscalculations occur, owner will be subject to discipline(TBD)

    ya he actually wanted $12 million and he is actually an ovr 83 so i didn't have a bonus requirement either. Im sure EAs contract logic is off for many good players.

    Yeah I was surprised but next year he will probably want a 3-4 year deal which he will probably get from me, or be traded for a pirates ransom.

    Please read the first post in this thread, we have a contract bonus requirement for re-signs and will have for off-season. Let me know if you have any questions, any re-signs you do you can post here whether a bonus requirement or not, but must put re-signs here that have a requirement.
