Try going to the website and make a trade.



I must be an idiot because I can't even figure out where to do this at. I've looked all over the site and clicked on all links in it.

Spoiler

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


Isn't it incredible that we're all racking our brains this hard and wasting so much time trying to figure out something that should have required no thought at all? It's like we're trying to cure cancer in here. Just get shit right, EA! Jesus!

4 years at 2.2 mil for a 32 year old fullback? Am I missing something. Sounds like crazy money for someone who's a dime a dozen and only used on a few plays. Even if Polite is a 88 ovr.

Make sure you look at the fine print. It probably says 2.2 mil OVER 4 years, or 550k a year. So your total contract should come out to 2.2 and match his number across from it. (Assuming you're doing this from the web). I failed to do this for Steve Smith and he just got a 4-5 million dollars/year raise. Might have to ask n8 if I can cut him and pick him up as a FA and go back to trying to resign him next offseason--assuming I'm reading this all correctly.

But he's coaching the Rams!! These storylines don't add up haha. Unless... player/coach. 8-) I like Bradford a lot, but man, Warner would be fun. Might have to make an offer on him in Round 2.

Oh and if you're curious who is likely coming off the books for you and can't get on your Xbox and don't want to click through every single player, try: http://www.spotrac.c...is-rams/yearly/

I just did that for the Rams and it seemed to work. Madden doesn't seem to take into account restricted free agents, so just assume those guys are off the books. And then obviously any guys with one year left you might want to double check, but at least you can rule out all of the lengthy deals.

So when it says 4 year / 2.2 mil Its 2.2 mil over 4 years? Not atleast 2.2 mil a year?

if you plan on doing this step by step please pm me so that way once we advance i know who to ask to see if it was correct or not so i can consider it tested by more than one person aka myself

did we advance and did he come out of retirement?

also if i go by the site uber posted
collins
mays
dunlap
allen
atkins

all should be under contract still for 1 year like the game says lets see if after we advance if they are still on my team like they should be. also if they do stay on my team thats means my plan of how to detect who is really a FA and who isnt actually works :) but thats also would mean if they are in ur resign box that means they are the only real FAs as well which will be good to know for the future

hmmm must have missed that one very interesting though but if his stats are that great but his overall is that low there has to be something wrong with the guy thats for sure. either way i might take a stab at him depending on how my FAs come out after we advance and after i find out about my trade. wut time do we plan to advance i know its more than likely been mentioned already but with doing so much research of how to figure out ea sports off season cancer problem i more than likely over looked the time.

How to make a trade from the website (a tutorial)

After logging into the site, select My Team from the top bar. Select the position of the player you want to trade for. Scroll down to where it says available players and change it from free agents to trade in the drop down menu.

Find a player from the team you want to trade with and flick on their card and then click profile. It will take you to a page that shows their performance. In the top right corner, click Take action and select Trade for. This will take you to a screen where it shows you a list of players from both teams, along with their overalls and cap hits to choose from. At the top there is a tab for future draft picks. After you've checked off what you want to trade for and trade away, select review trade. If you're satisfied select Offer Trade and you're done.

If you receive an offer while you're on the website you'll see it at the top under My Actions.

I'm curious, is anyone going to actually quit who has been in the league and PLANNED on staying if they can't resign the guys they planned to resign?

I've already lost guys I've tried to resign during the season offering literally way more than they wanted and yea it sucks and this whole situation seems a bit messed up (a lot messed up) but what I those players weren't wanting to stay no matter what? I get the autopilot thing and so forth but I just think its a little crappy to quit if you aren't able to resign your players with getting a second shot.

Anyone else think its kind of douchey....not saying those guys are douches just saying its a douchey thing to say and potentially do is all.
