    Are we still planning on drafting Sunday? We're not even through the divisional round yet (although only one game to be played) and it looks we may not be until Saturday. So just curious what the status was here.

    I'll update the schedule when we move forward with the playoffs. Hard to project when we've been delayed a couple times due to peoples' schedules. Right now it's looking like draft will have to be Monday or Tuesday realistically.

    So I assume we will be alerted when the offseason process begins?

    I'm sure HotRod will let us know when he advances, but the AFC championship should be tonight and I would expect the Super Bowl either tonight or tomorrow morning.....so stay on your toes!!!! :watching:

    I have picked up a new Xbox 360 so I am ready. I also would make the recommendation of taking everyone off AutoPilot before advancing to the First Stage of Free Angency so these teams aren't making CPU offers to other players.

    Reminder of contract rules

    Bonus Requirement for New Contracts

    There will be a Bonus requirement for all new contracts awarded to Free Agents and also existing players that are re-signed during the season. This is to emulate the realism in the NFL when talented players are rewarded with a new long-term contract with a big portion of that contract guaranteed.

    To make this simple, the players that will be subject to a Bonus Requirement will be players regardless of position that are rated 85 and above.

    There will be a % applied to the contract that must be offered during the negotiations stage and the % will be based on the following age tiers:

    · Players rated 85+ that are 30 and under in age will be subject to a 40% Bonus Requirement

    · Players rated 85+ that are 31 and over in age will be subject to a 20% Bonus Requirement

    Age will defined as the age when the negotiations happen. When we say 30 and under, we mean age 30 is included and any age below that.

    Example – 85 Rated Player age 28 – Requests 4 year contract

    Contract Offered 4 years for $30 million total

    40% of $30 million = $12 million. So the contract must have at least 12 million in bonus.

    Essentially, this will equate to $18 million in salary + $12 million bonus money

    Example – 85 Rated Player age 32 – Requests 4 year contract

    Contract Offered 4 years for $30 million total

    20% of $30 million = $6 million. So the contract must have at least $6 million in bonus.

    Essentially, this will equate to $22 million in salary + $6 million bonus money

    ***Reminder to be within Section T.2 policy regarding Free Agents with the maximum contract that can be offered is 1 year addition to what is requested by the Free Agent or Re-signee.

    Just an FYI, as I have just joined the league. I cant really resign my own players now because of this rule, as I have virtually no cash.

    After a lot of thought the dallas cowboys are bringing back the 3-4 defense. The owner is expecting more pressure and consistent play from the deep lb corps. Will be looking for dl depth in draft and free agency.

    Why don't we just condense fa signing. Most guys don't sign week 1. Like try to condense it down so we can draft Sunday night.

    I really only care about resigning Dalton tbqh. Honestly though, I just wanna play and have fun. If I have to draft a QB, I will.

    It's up to you. This seems to be a situation That was out of your control. I remember special hands off on a couple of guys last year, so you wouldn't be breaking new ground.

    Like I said, if I could just resign Dalton, I'll deal with losing the rest.
