I)Your console roster MUST MUST MUST MUST MUST be at 48 players or below before the draft. Via cuts, trades or expiring contracts, you've gotta be at 48. II)Any player with only 1 year left on their contract - you must make a decision about. Because next season is represented by the next column and at the start of the new season he won't be under contract. Free agency will happen like this. 1)Pre progession decisions. That means right now you should be thinking about this.As of right now, any player with 1 year left on your spreadsheet is considered a restricted free agent. That means you have until we open up real free agency (24-48hrs after the draft) to decide if you would like to sign them. If you would like to re-sign them, say so in your roster management thread. If you would like to allow them to enter free agency, say so in your roster management thread.**Important** You will still re-sign players at their post progression overalls.2)**Progression takes place after the draft** 3)Post progession decisionsThis is going to be a 24-48hr period that takes place before free agency but after the draft, where you finish deciding on which restricted FA's you're keeping and which you're letting walk. You'll now be able to see your players after progression and decide what you're doing. Always remember to post your decisions in your roster management thread. You say who you want to re-sign, and who you are letting walk.4)Free Agency OpensWe will have our customary 4 or 5 bid periods that are each 24hrs in length. You'll submit your bids to me via PM, just as last season. If you win your bid, update your roster management thread with that info.III)After free agency we kick off the season. You'll have until the trade deadline to make in-season re-sign decisions, just as last season. *NOTE* Do not drop any players you are unsure of what you're doing with until after the draft. Players you absolutely don't want, go ahead and drop from your roster to get under the 48 player cap. If, however, theres a restricted FA (ie a guy who will become a FA if you don't resign him) HOLD ON TO HIM untill AFTER the draft. I say this because unwanted players get deleted from free agency. If theres a guy that you're unsure if, if you put him into FA before there draft, theres a good chance he'll literally end up deleted, never to be found again.
