Yeah, I really like that as well, but I feel that if you were to do this you would have to raise the qualifications for being an RFA. Personally, I like the idea of adding a rule that limits how many of your UFAs you can resign as well. Maybe something like this for UFA / RFA: =========================================================== Here is how RFAs will be determined: A. Players Age ≤ 25 Years Old and have and Overall rating ≥ 95 B. Players Age ≥ 26 Years Old and have and Overall rating ≥ 90 RFA status is determined AFTER progression each offseason. Kickers and punters do not apply to this rule. Compensation for winning a bid is a 1st and 3rd round pick, no salary is added to the winning bid. UFA: Teams are limited to resigning a maximum of 3 UFAs per offseason with 80+ OVR. You're free to resign any UFAs with OVR ratings of 79 or below. If they go into the UFA / RFA 1 pool unsigned you can still bid on them. Franchise Tag: You can assign a franchise tag to one player per offseason (regardless of whether or not they're a UFA or RFA [this also dosnt count towards your UFA restrictions if the player is a UFA]). The Franchise Tag resigns the player for one season for $10 mil (7 mil salary, 3 mil bonus) and at the end of the contract the player becomes a UFA (regardless of whether or not he meets RFA restrictions [remember, players generally speaking dont like to be franchise tagged]). =========================================================== Just some ideas to liven up the offseason. The RFA to me personally is too broad atm. Generally speaking as well the UFA pool pre UFA2 is usually pretty lacking. I think this also puts pressure on more people to manage their salary cap and player contracts (in terms of when they expire). It also makes building through the draft more important IMO.
