    This only applies to the teams that had inactive owners that are now replaced. There are a few teams that were left with a gutted roster due to no participation in the offseason. In an effort to remedy this issue I have come to the following resolution.

    I will be assigning one player at each position of need for each team to fill the roster minimum. Position of need will be based on current player ratings and depth. If there is no player at the position obviously it's a position of need. If there are a bunch of low rated players <70 OVR then it qualifies as a position of need. After that each team will submit waiver claims like everyone else to fill the rest of the roster. Any player that isn't claimed or assigned must be dropped from the roster.

    The players assigned will not always be the best rated player available.

    I hope everyone will be ok with going about it this way. I don't want new guys to be totally at a competitive disadvantage however I don't want the waivers to be screwed up either.

    Texans position of need:
    FB - Mike McNeill
    WR - Miles Austin
    DT - Tommy Kelly
    OLB - Leroy Hill

    Steelers positions of need:
    C - Daniel Kilgore
    CB - Dunta Robinson
    RE - Mike DeVito
    MLB - Carlos Dansby

    Browns positions of need:
    FB - John Kuhn
    TE - Dustin Keller
    C - Manny Ramirez
    G - Mike Brisiel
    DT - Kyle Williams
    OLB - Dontay Moch
    CB - Antoine Cason

    Very fair solution to the process. I thank you for taking the time to see the issue and finding a fair but not unbalanced way to make it work.

    Fine by me. My roster is set. Whatever you need to do to help those team. Hope they don't do the same thing that the previous owner did though. :)

    Your team is one example. Just abandoning their team. Not resigning players. Not keeping up then just disappearing

    After pre-season waivers are completed, Browns, Texans, and Steelers are free to pick up any unclaimed players still available in free agency. Just let me know who you plan on signing beforehand.

    I will do this once I get home and join the league, no problem. However, I will not be home until around 4pm pacific / 7pm eastern, I hope that isn't an issue.
