This is the 1st cost of the next season's salary cap
*Seasoned teams will have less available cash for draftees and for in season costs.

Player re-signing fees cost a team part of their salary

Players released during Free Agency will credit the teams salary cap for that season

SPECIAL SPP Levels

Until we can assign SPPs, there is an extra skill level

1spp=skill

In addition to the 6,16,31,51,76,176
PRACTICE SQUAD

You may have a roster of up to 16 players, up to 4 of those players may be designated as "practice squad" Those players are removed from the UDFA eligibility list, and are part of your team, but are not part of your game time roster (TV) and you do not hire them.

You may call move a player up to your team roster at any time there is an open spot for them, but they can NOT be sent back to the practice squad once activated.
They have a good union

e.g. A team with 4 blitzers, 3 healthy and 1 MNG would NOT be able to activate a practice quad blitzer without releasing one of their current rostered blitzers.
(Your team may not rehire that player until other teams have a chance to pick them up)
DRAFT INFORMATION

LINK TO DRAFT PAGE

UDFA Process
*When a player is offered a contract by multiple teams priority is invoked.

Teams with the worst record = Priority
1st tie = Lowest TV & practice squad & MNG
2nd tiebreaker = First submitted request


Teams will be granted their 1st pick so long as another team has not been given that player on priority. After each player is given priority is re-evaluated until all requested Free Agents have been assigned.
