    Just joining up, and not much roster stuff to handle until season 3, but posting this up here.

    @Jmustang1968
    Actually you do have some roster stuff to do. You need to get your roster ready for the draft more or less.

    Everyone here, at the start of season 2, was given 8 free cuts (meaning without cap penalty) in order to trim their roster down to the maximum of 48 before heading into the draft.

    Essentially, if you draft and your roster goes over 55 (the absolute max,) then the CPU will randomly cut guys from your console roster. It gets confusing because in theory your spreadsheet roster should match your console roster. In order to quell that, we gave everyone 8 free cuts to get ready for the draft and to shore up their salary cap situation.

    SO - you need to reconcile your roster. You have rookies that you need to decide whether or not you're keeping them or cutting them (no penalty and it doesn't count towards your 8 free cuts.) Ideally, you'll have 3, maybe 4 guys worth keeping. If you have more, by all means keep them - the decision is yours - but a lot of times the later round picks are just crap.

    Anyway, post your rookie signings and your rookie cuts. Then cut the actual players from your console - remember, you want your spreadsheet to mirror your console.

    Then go back through and reconcile - any free agents that the CPU picked up - either officially sign them or drop them back into FA. Just signify in here which is which and let me know.

    Finally, you get your 8 free cuts - these would be guys on your actual spreadsheet right now that you wish to cut, for free, without penalty. They can be guys with just crazy cap numbers or guys you don't need or however you want to do it. You don't have to cut 8 but you can cut up to 8. Again, just list them in here.

    Make sure your roster is at 48 players BEFORE the draft. That way we'll have no magical cuts made by the CPU that we have to reconcile.

    Always remember that any move you make to your roster, you must post in here. If you sign a guy, cut a guy, sign a rookie, cut a rookie, re-sign a guy, whatever - you do it all in here.

    Let me know if you have questions.

    Ok, so I gotta fix up the season 1 roster that is posted in excel and then make that agree with the console roster. And then cut 8 extra of whatever? I do know they have some shitty rookies on their roster in there. Ok I will try to get that done sometime tonight.

    Theres no rush - just have to get it done before the draft.

    Just try to follow what I posted above and you'll be fine.

    @Jmustang1968 - nice job so far.

    Favre - Retired
    Webb - Signed by Raiders so dont worry about it
    DL F. Evans - still sitting in FA so you have a choice - if you want to put him back on your roster you can. Only reason i would do it is if I were planning on resigning him because his contract expires this season.
    LB K. Onatolu - same as Evans
    CB F. Walker - retired
    S E. Frampton - same as Evans

    Let me know what you would like to do with the guys in red.

    Nice job with your rookie "not signings," your free cuts have been removed from your spreadsheet.

    Assuming those two players were your 1st and 2nd round picks, their contracts are as follows:
    LT R. Wells - 27th overall pick - 77ovr - 3yrs - 6/yr + 2$ signing bonus
    LE X. Terry - 2nd round - 67ovr - 3yrs - 3/yr + 1$ signing bonus

    Again, let me know what you want to do with the guys in red.

    I will be updating overalls for players that sign a new contract. Otherwise their overall will stay the same on the spreadsheet until contract time.

    Sheet up to date. Rookies signed and no restricted FA's left to make decisions about. Please make sure you release your FA's on the console as well and pickup "placeholder" players if you cannot release them because of a roster minimum.
