NFL Countdown - Free Agency Rules
« on: September 03, 2018, 04:06:00 PM »
Free Agency

Starts: Tuesday midnight EST 9/25/18  NFL Week4
Ends: Week 13 (Edited to match original FA rule from 2014) 

Eligible Players:
All players currently in the NFL (no college players) not on a NFLC team.

Bid Clock: 48 Hours
Minimum initial bid: $400K
Minimum yearly salary: $400K
Bid Increment: $100K
Minimum Raise: $200K < $10M Total Bid; $1M > $9.9M Total Bid

--No editing of bids.  It is a form of CHEATING and will be treated as such.  This is a rule that is across the board in every league on this site.  It will be enforced here.

*Note* If you released a player, you cannot bid on that player for 30 Days.
- This is in effect for any player released under the releasing players rules.

A manager does not have to have the roster space or cap space to bid on a player.  This is due to the non-guaranteed contracts utilized in this league, a manager can make a couple quick moves to get under the roster limit and salary cap to take on their new free agent signing.

Player Posting

To make it easier to search the board, post players in the following format.
Position - First Last - Team
Example:  QB - Drew Brees - NO
This will make the board look clean and organized.

After a bid is won.
Teams have 48hrs to post roster moves to make room either for salary, roster spot or both for a winning FA bid.

If a team does not make the necessary moves, the team will be assessed a penalty of the next draft's 3rd round pick and the player will go back to free agency. The team will also be assessed the cap hit associated with dropping a player of the winning bid's contract using the scale below.   

Releasing Players Under Contract
All contracts are non-binding, you may release a player or coach at any time.  However, bonuses are given to each contract for the duration of the contract that will count against your salary cap.  They are as follows:

Player's yearly salary/amount of bonus each year:
$1.0m or less    = no bonus
$1.1m - $3.0m    = $500k
$3.1m - $5.0m    = $1.0m
$5.1m - $7.0m    = $2.0m
$7.1m - $10.0m   = $3.0m
$10.1m or higher = $4.0m

  • indiansnation: hell of a trade

  • Milton: Davis is a great player, but that's an aweful lot to give away for him--3 pretty useful blokes plus an early pick this year
    June 15, 2019, 09:07:13 PM
  • Milton: and 2 future 1st rd picks as well
    June 15, 2019, 09:08:07 PM

  • Jonathan: I don't think the Lakers did that bad. You have to give a lot to get a top player, who is in his prime. #4 pick is good, but not quite Morant/Barrett good. My guess is Pels trade down for more assets.
    June 15, 2019, 11:06:54 PM
  • Orange Country: Time will tell as they did give up a lot for him on paper
    June 15, 2019, 11:08:48 PM
  • Orange Country: It's too early to see how the teams look heading into next year since the Warriors look mortal for once
    June 15, 2019, 11:09:25 PM
  • Orange Country: Every Armchair GM has their opinion right after the deal is done, let's see how the :LAL: play this off-season out
    June 15, 2019, 11:10:09 PM

    Yesterday at 01:38:34 AM
  • Daddy: Hate to offend anyone by pointing that out, but i hope this offseason prompts discussion at least. I mean BooYah! .
    Yesterday at 01:43:16 AM
  • Brent: I'm glad that is finally done and I love the haul the Pels got.  It was about the best they could get and they got it.

  • Flash: @Daddy - I agree that the -32 for errors is something that needs to be changed.
    Yesterday at 02:31:24 AM
  • Daddy: @Flash thank you. Thats the first public support for looking into "upgrading" the foundation the points leagues were built on.
    Yesterday at 03:49:07 AM

    Yesterday at 10:46:16 PM
