    Hey guys, I did some testing on the ability to resign players that were traded for in the last year of their contract.

    My findings seem to indicate that you cannot, during the season, resign a player that you traded for in that season. They simply don't appear to be willing to enter contract negotiations.

    I have found that sometimes, but not always, you will be able to attempt to resign the player(s) during the Resigning period, prior to Free Agency.

    In these cases, just like with any player with an expiring contract, you have one shot to sign the player(s) to a contract they find acceptable, before they will enter Free Agency.

    For those players that show up on the resignings screen, you would also be able to apply a franchise tag to one of them.

    Unfortunately, some players do not give you the opportunity to resign them at all and and so they cannot even be franchised.

    Players traded with more than a year remaining appear to be unaffected, they can still show up during the season (of their final contract year) for resigning.

    ------------------------------------------------

    I know this will not be welcome news to some of you, but all part of the risk vs. reward involving trades.

    It makes a huge difference when making a decision when you have all the facts infront of you and in this game we did not know about this which would have really changed my mind in making a trade for such players.

    It would have changed ALL of our minds. We're all in the same boat here.

    This may only apply to players traded with one year remaining...not sure if it applies to all players traded

    Updated original post, players with more than one year don't appear to be affected.

    Can there be some sort of exemption deal worked out for each team?

    Something like: a player acquired with one year left on his deal is untouchable in free agency until he passes through the signing period - that way owners that acquire the player have a legitimate shot to bring him back.

    And if they don't want him back, they can just waive the hold and that player becomes fair game...

    On a positive note Free Agency should be interesting in year one

    We've discussed this and we're going to move forward with what the online CCM presents to us. There is no guarantee that the player would have returned to either team, nor is there any way that we can govern such an option. Some teams will have a legitimate shot to resign the players before FA. If we allow them an opportunity to have a free shot at the player in FA, that would give those teams two opportunities at signing the player. We will proceed with what the online CCM allows for traded players.

    Ok so I tried to resign CB Cox he rejected my initial offer. Does this mean I no longer have a chance to resign him?!? I'll make him Revis but I didn't know he wold never negotiate again. This sucks.

    Unless this is only for traded players.

    If you make fair offers, the player will consider them and if he really wants to stay, will give you multiple opportunities to re-sign him. However, if his asking price and what you are willing to pay are too far apart, he'll shut down negotiations and choose to enter FA...

    I reiterate, we are ALL in the same boat here. I've had three starters decline my offers which were for more than the contract terms that the players were requesting.


    Guys, re-signing players is not going to be a "given" like it has been in years past. Plan accordingly and prepare for the draft and free agency!

    If a player shows as "unavailable" in the resign players screen, he has shut down negotiations and will enter FA (unless he is franchised).
