Had an office holiday party last night and didn't get back until late. No need to make any special arrangements for me though. I'm sure I can manage. My biggest problem will be not knowing who was on the Rams last year and who I have first dibs at. I just don't know this team very well yet. I don't think there's anything that says who their former team was (could be wrong on this).


You can resign players from the website FYI.

Can you sign on to the website? I'm pretty sure jza did resignings from the computer.

FYI, I've resigned the one player I was interested in retaining. I likely won't be participating in the Round 1 that is being planned.

Question though: At what point are we reopening trades? Because it would be nice to know if my trade is approved so I know how much money I have to spend in free agency.

I believe it'll be when we advance to the next round of offseason stuff tonight.

i agree plus our trade isnt even part of the reason why trades are frozen and if the trade gets denied we have to wait evne longer to figure things out

Yeah the only things is you have to look at every players profile and click on actions to see if they can be resigned. It can take a while though.

Also be careful. When you go to to do it, if a guy wants a 4 year, 20 million deal, the site enters 20,000,000 for the guys annual salary.

No problem. Like I said, you have to look through each player. Click on their player card, select profile and on the next screen, where it shows you stats and such, select player action at the top. It will usually say "set as tradeable" or "release player" but if you can resign them it will say that as well.

Yeah, it'll be tonight once we see who is actually a free agent. I get what you guys are saying, but you have to understand, the committee has all these proposals coming at us, and they're incredibly hard to evaluate when there is this much going on.

For that matter, a trade that we had already reviewed and approved had to be replanned once DVO learned he didn't have the cap space to make it. We're just trying to cut down on redundant work here.
Do you have what it takes to compete?

On the block.

Champ Bailey CB (89 OVR) (95 MAN, 88 ZONE, 95 PLR)
Knowshon Moreno HB (78 OVR) (86 SPD, 92 ACC)
Joel Dressen TE (71 OVR) (84 CTH, 81 RTR)


Looking for draft picks. Maybe a corner to replace Bailey.


Bumping this back up. I think a lot op people missed it in the haze. But not this haze.

No one got lost in that haze for sure.

Madden is weird. If I release players that I have declined not to sign and will be free agents, it actually clears cap room.

Any idea if it looks like these guys are asking for more than they would in-game? Steve Smith for 7~ mill seems like a hell of a lot, considering SJax makes that much money and he's the star of the team.

You can also propose the trade on the console and he can accept it on the website.

Hah! I may have read Smith's wrong though. 7 million over 3 years... Though 2 and change million seems pretty cheap for him. He's only rated in the mid/high 70s though. I may have just overpaid by 3x. :applause:

So im looking at my team and I can't believe I'm about to franchise a punter (I know teams have done it in real life, still seems weird) but Lechler is a valuable part of my team considering how much I punt. He led the league in punts, yards, net yards, and second in average punt distance. Can't afford to replace him right now.

If you go to the trade menu, the drop down thing where you can change position shows you what picks you have under "Picks"

I THINK I FIGURED IT OUT EVERYONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!! MUST READ THIS

hmmm so jza i just tried wut u did and cut players that denied contracts with me and when i cut them they said i would save money thru cutting them but before i cut them it i checked my current cap space balance in team salaries then once i cut them went to see if it changed and nothing did so thoughs guys fake contract werent actually on the book must be part of the ea mess up

but then i did some more things like i went to players that said they had one year that werent in my resign area and when i went to cut them it said i would save this much but would get a cap penalty of however much then i would cancel. so im thinking or atleast hoping that if a cap penalty pops up thats means there still actually signed unless of course they didnt have a bonus in there contract but everyone that need to be signed didnt have bonuses shouldnt be hard to figure this part out at all

then from there i cut a player on my team that i didnt want on the team becuz hes getting over paid so i cut him and when i cut him the money i cut him for to save actually shows in the team salaries. im thinking i might be on to something but not 100% sure yet but the guy i cut had 3 years left on his deal not 1 but morfe than 1 i did that to make sure how things would work

might be on to more i went to team needs and after cutting all the players that wouldnt resign with me i went to team needs to check on the expiring contract section of team needs and i have zero expiring contracts which means everyone i have with 1 year still should be good to keep until the next offseason. everyone else should check this out and see if it the same for them as well that way if all this that i have found holds any grounds and we have enough people to help back this up as all true we might have found a way to fix the off season confusion for good in this league as well as the other league. like bv said we have the chance to take care of this and better prepare and i think if we find anything we should 100% for sure pass the knowledge but we wont know for sure unless everyone tries this or atleast 4 or 5 others

I can't even get to the trade menu on the game, it's not something I can select. I can only select roster, progress players, injury report and depth chart.
