I'll reiterate that people shouldn't get their hopes too high for FA. I expect we'll be able to count the number of elite guys who hit the market this first year on one hand.

Thats generally the case irl as well. But when guys like DRC don't re-sign with their respective teams, it makes it really interesting. :)

Oh, and congrats to mog on his title! His name has been added (well, re-added) to the hall of champions in the OP. He has the honor of taking down the first Madden 13 title, and also tying sprice atop the all-time title leaderboard with 3.

Definitely. I'm sure there will be a few interesting names on the market. I just know some people have been clearing cap room in anticipation of some kind of free agent bonanza, so I just don't want people to get their hopes too high.

Depending on how my 2014 cap shapes up, Revis and Landry might be hitting the market next year. Both with 1 year remaining, and me with no cap space. Might be looking at a firesale at this year's deadline. :/

Only two guys rejected my offer, one of whom I tagged. I did bring a lot of guys back on cheap one-year deals without bonuses though, allowing me to cut them if I need to if I sign better FAs or draft picks.

I'm not sure if the trade comission is processing trades at this point in the offseason. But the Cardinals and Eagles have one ready to go on the last page.

We're on it.

I'm not sure when you can actually process trades in the offseason though.

Well Greedy McGee Desean Jackson asked me for a new contract mid-season, I just laughed because he had JUST gotten one for 5 years/40 Million.

Unfortunately it now looks like he will be in the Free Agency market for you hyenas.

Good luck, man. You'll have to fight my cap clearing efforts OR whoever might get him before the deadline (if it isn't you! :)), so it could be a tough one.

Doesn't make sense that Desean Jackson would be available unless Madden didn't get his contract right when the game came out or in subsequent updated rosters.

I got swindled in my trade too I aint get to offer Rodgers - Cromartie any sort of deal


Regarding DRC:

It seems pretty obvious that this issue was caused by a bug in Madden rather than anything Cru did. My guess is that LV ended negotiations with him before the trade, which meant that Cru wasn't able to re-sign him after the deal was made. It's not very realistic that he wouldn't at least be able to franchise him, therefore we're going to allow Cru exclusive rights to him in Free Agency.

If anybody else thinks they are in a similar situation with any traded players in the final year of their deal, please let us know and we'll look into it.

I didn't have any contract negotiations with DRC in Madden 13. I just saw what was coming, got a good deal and cut ties.

Well, something happened anyway. At the very least he should have been able to franchise him, which obviously he had every intention of doing.

Cru, have you used your franchise tag already?

I don't understand it either. Maybe he won't hit Free Agency (fingers crossed). He still has four years left on his deal, I just figured he was negotiating to get more money, and since I didn't talk to him he is holding out now? I don't know.

If he still has 4 years left, than he shouldn't hit FA. I'm not sure whether guys can hold out or not (I don't think so) but that shouldn't make him a FA either way.

So, if DRC doesn't re-sign with Cru during Free Agency, will we allow Cru to sign him as a Free Agent once the season starts?

Good question. I think Cru should still need to offer DRC market value (ie the contract he is asking for) which is what it would have cost if he'd been able to negotiate with him before. If he does, I assume with no other offers that DRC will sign with him. If not, then I guess he would be able to sign him once the season starts.

I'm not 100% sure how it will work, since we've never been through a Madden 13 offseason or faced this situation before. We'll just have to see. This first offseason will be a learning experience for all of us.

I have not used my franchise tag all season , I almost used it on moss but I just gave him a good deal. I offered no one else a deal I am losing a decent amount of money to keep my cap free in anticipation of paying DRC whatever he wants
