    Entering the first off season and attempting to make the cap relevant the following guidelines must be applied when signing free agents during the off season.

    • 85 OVR or GREATER can sign to MAX 5 year deal
    • 84 OVR and BELOW can sign to MAX 4 year deal
    • 6 year deal request, picture will be proofed in team management thread
    • All players must sign to a min of 30% bonus
    • Only players not receiving a bonus are ONE year deals which happen INSEASON
    Trade Clause Changes to Impact Cap
    • Eli Manning Clause (Rookies can be traded up until advance to Regular Season W1.
    • Chip Kelly Clause (Each team can trade ONE rookie contract during file)
    Please adhere to these requirements, these are set up to still make owners make wise choices when dealing with their cap. It's very easy to see if someone is circumventing these rules via CFM & Daddy's League.
    If you make a mathematical error we'll give one pass. But if you abuse this you will be forced to cut the player you signed. Sanctions on teams will also be applied in future free agent periods (if you're not booted)

    Thanks to Big Suge Knight for helping with the calculator!

    Please only change the fields in green ...
    Enter the applicable information where necessary, the bonus given is the amount you need to apply in game

    cool, thought i'd post a picture of an example what we would see on the console for those that rather have a visual of the ingame mechanic.

    used a 95 rated lineman 25 years old on how to apply 40%

    the console when re-signing your players use the annual amount when configuring a contract for both salary and bonus.

    I've changed the excel above using my examples demands to match up.

    ONe more picture, not sure , but the free agency period uses a whole new mechanic using the full value of the salary and bonus when you offer. THe re-sign period uses the annual amoutn for salary and bonus. EA logic is real!!

    So i attached a picture of a 90 rated player in free agency. WHile the max that can be offered is 5 years, i left this example at four for simplicity sake.

    EDIT: in the picture, notice you will see a contract and bonus requirement separately, so combined the two is the minimum baseline to apply the %

    This rule also applies to in-season resigning; a few people have asked me. Any process which involves a players contract will fall under this guideline. Any questions don't hesitate to ask!

    Since each of our schemes changes a players overall how will the true overall be determined to see if a player is truly in the 90's. A guy can by 90's for me but 88 for another scheme.

    This should be honor system type, if you're trying to slot JJ Watt in as a 88 it'll raise flags. But yes schemes do change, this will fall into the "don't be a douche" ... We could drop the rating to 85 OVR which will capture a larger group of highly skilled players regardless of scheme or position.

    Just want to confirm, the percentage is applied to the full value of the contract offered vs. the desired contract. This is more of a wording issue, but wanted to make sure there is no confusion because the excel column is labeled "desired contract".

    In many cases, just meeting the desired contract value is not enough to sign a guy, so an offer would likely be a few million more than the desired which the % is then applied to the total value of the contract offered.

    Is it ever acceptable to offer less than desired with same bonus percentage criteria based on our offer? Just want to cover all possibilities.

    I'm pretty sure you can offer what ever as far as money you just have to make sure the bonus percent is right for the salary being offered

    Like if they ask for 5.5 mil a year base and you only want to offer 4.5 you just have to make sure the bonus percent is right for the total salary you actually offer.

    Another clarification

    So does exactly 30 years old go under 30% or 20%?

    • Players UNDER 30 years old must sign to a min of 30% bonus
    • Players OVER 30 years old must sign to min of 20% bonus

    charter04 hit it on the head, as long as the % matches accordingly you can offer whatever money ya want. Hopefully as Kid illustrated in the picture; with the %'s the numbers should jive pretty realistic.

    If a player is exactly 30, use the over percentage ..

    The calculators are becoming confusing for some, and I think values are being changed .. the safe way to get ball park bonus is....

    take the desired amount ... multiply that by applicable % (.20 .30 .40) take this number and divide it by the number of years. This is rule of thumb if the desired contract length and proposed length match.

    I have updated all the sheets so that it should make it easier to take the figures from the calculators and put them directly into the console.

    If a guy wants 2 yr, 1.65 mil, and the least you can give is 750k salary, you would have to overpay to make bonus work.

    I'm actually fairly good with math. However, I was being lazy and just plugged some numbers into the calculator provided and now my OLB makes Joe Flacco money.... ooops
