    *** UNRESTRICTED FREE AGENT RULES ***

    [​IMG]

    (1) CONTRACT OFFERS MUST BE FOR THE NUMBER OF YEARS THAT THE FREE AGENT IS ASKING UNLESS IT IS AN INJURY SIGNING.
    (2) Any contract offer to fill a roster deficiency due to injury will take precedence over any other contract offers. Injury signings may be made for any number of years that the team chooses.
    (3) Free agency will be a blind bid format during the first 48 hours of free agency opening. All other contract offers beyond the initial 48 hour period will be immediate signings upon contract offering (first come, first serve) or 48 hour waiver claims for those players who are released by teams during the regular season.
    (4) NEWLY ACQUIRED FREE AGENTS MUST REMAIN ON THE TEAM’S ROSTER FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE CURRENT SEASON.

    Owners are required to verify team salary cap room and roster availability before offering a free agent contract. Any free agent bids that would place a team over its salary cap limit or over its roster limit will be denied. The staff will decide whether to approve or deny all contracts offered. If a free agent bid is denied, the reason(s) will be presented so that the owner involved in the bid may attempt to alleviate the issue(s) to have the bid approved. If the owner fails to alleviate the issue(s), the free agent will be signed with the team with the next best contract offered.

    BLIND BIDDING:
    (1) All blind bids must be sent by email to premiermaddenfootball@gmail.com.
    (2) Free agent bids must be received by the deadline that is established (TBA).
    (3) Contract terms cannot be changed. The first contract offered by a team will be the ONLY contract considered by that team.
    (4) Contract offers cannot be withdrawn.
    (5) Bidding must be for the length of contract required by the free agent. Therefore, if the free agent’s interest is a three year contract, all bids MUST be for three years.
    (6) Free agents that are signed will take effect on the next week’s roster.
    (7) The free agent blind bidding format is as follows and it must be used for a bid to be accepted:

    Message Title:
    Free agent FULL name and position

    Message Body:
    Team
    Player name and Overall
    Position
    Contract length / salary / bonus

    Example:

    Message Title:
    Terrell Owens WR

    Message Body:
    Cardinals
    Terrell Owens
    WR
    4YR / $22.5M / $9.2M


    WAIVERS AND IMMEDIATE SIGNING:
    (1) Any player released by a team during the regular season will be placed on waivers for 48 hours. The waiver order will be determined by record (worst-to-first) and the NFL tie-break procedures. The team with the worst record to claim the player will sign the free agent when the 48 hour waiver period expires. If the 48 hour waiver period expires and the player remains unclaimed, the player may be signed with a valid contract offer at any time by any team.
    (2) Contract terms cannot be changed.
    (3) Contract offers cannot be withdrawn.
    (4) Contracts must be for the length of contract required by the free agent. Therefore, if the free agent’s point value is equivalent to a three year contract, all bids MUST be for three years.
    (5) Free agents that are signed will take effect on the next week’s roster.
    (6) Immediate signings should be posted in the forum by the team signing the free agent. Format is as follows and it must be used for a bid to be accepted:

    Message Title:
    Free agent FULL name and position (include "INJURY SIGNING" or "WAIVERS" if it applies)

    Message Body:
    Team
    Player name and Overall
    Position
    Contract length / salary / bonus

    Example:

    Message Title:
    Terrell Owens WR (include "INJURY SIGNING" or "WAIVERS" if it applies)

    Message Body:
    Cardinals
    Terrell Owens
    WR
    4YR / $22.5M / $9.2M
