  1. This is the free agency thread for all Restricted Free Agents and Special Teams players. Bidding on Free Agents: If you win the bid on a specific player, said player will count as part of your 2017 roster. Since there's no rollover with regards to next season, we won't concern ourselves with the years of the contract. The format below is for the first overall bid: § Team Name § Free Agent § Bid (# of Stars) Example: Baltimore Ravens Justin Houston (OLB) 12 stars ***You CANNOT place bids which you aren't able to afford in the present time*** - You MUST create the necessary cap space first by either trading and/or releasing to create enough room. If you wish to bid on a player who has already received a bid, you must search through the thread, quote the highest bid at the moment, and post a bid higher than the leading one. Each leading bid MUST be quoted outside of the Final Five. NO quoting is necessary during the Final Five. In both cases, you must continue to use format above. Final Five: In order to give a fair chance to match bid––and to stop a sudden mass bidding in the final minute––we have the Final Five rule. With five minutes left, one of the “CoCo” members will post that there are five minutes remaining in FA. If a player is bid on under five minutes, the team with the highest bid prior to the Final Five minutes will have an opportunity to get this player back in a “bid-off.” In order to initiate this “bid-off,” the team that had the highest bid prior to the Final Five must state in the FA thread that they would like to do a “bid-off". This has to be stated within 15 minutes of the end of the FA period. If you don’t comply with this rule, your Final Five rights become revoked. Simple as that. All bid-offs are required to be submitted before 8:00 PM EST. Both parties––the team that owned the highest bid prior to the final five and the team with the highest bid at the end of FA––will PM their highest bid to a predetermined member. The highest bid wins, simple as that. In the result of a tie, it will be done again until we have a winner. *NOTE* If you bid on a player in the final five but don’t “win” him there, you can’t take part in this process. This is reserves only for the highest bidder prior to the final five and the highest bidder at the end of FA. General FA Rules: Place ALL bids in the following format: Team Name Free Agent Bid (# of Stars) Absolutely NO discussions in the FA thread. NO discussions in the Cut Thread. Search for the leading bidder, quote their bid, and outbid them. Teams can bid any amount on a player but only in increments of 0.5 Stars. Always quote the previous highest bid until the last 5 minutes. Editing or deleting of posts is NOT permitted and carries a penalty. If you are caught, you WILL NOT be allowed to make any bids for the next 15 minutes. Every bid within the quoting period must be spelled correctly. This rule does NOT apply to bids that are submitted after the Final Five period begins. Any bid that is misspelled during the quoting period will be deemed invalid and will need to be resubmitted with proper spelling. You can start the bidding at any price, the lowest value being 0.5 Stars. Bid based on what you wish to pay for the 2017 base salary only (No signing bonuses). Free agents that are signed can be released afterwards but would net only half of the value of the initial contract. Round up for cuts if they were at a X.5 Stars. This means that a player signed for 2.5 Stars would be cut for savings of 1.5 Stars (2.5 ÷ 2 = 1.25, which rounds up to 1.5). The only exception is for players that were signed for 0.5 Stars, as they can be cut for the full 0.5 Stars.

  2. Please post which players are available via trade here. We opened this thread last year to keep it out of the discussion thread and it worked very well. It makes it easier if you post the players' names and the stars associated. The opposing team is acquiring the base salary, while your team is saving the amount from the cap savings column. Yes, some of the bonuses do disappear but we're doing what we can for ease.
  3. Green Bay Packers LB Michael Mauti 0.5 stars
  4. Let the 2017 Forum Mock commence! Discuss anything and everything related to the forum mock here. Signups will begin at 7PM EST, tonight. Please read the new process we have for signups in the official signup thread.
  5. First "rumor" is out.
  6. Green Bay Packers LB Korey Toomer 0.5 stars
  7. Invalid. Incorrect spelling Sheppard is valid, but you didn't quote the other ones and spelled Keenan incorrectly, so they're invalid.
  8. This is the thread to post your trades. Only trades in this thread please. The OP will not be updated to reflect all trades. Please post all trades in the following format: Team A Gives: player (cap saving/additions for both team) Round #, Pick # Team B Gives: player (cap saving/additions for both team) Totals: Team A saves/adds, Team B saves/adds One team posts the trade and the other team quotes the trade and says confirmed. If you do not do this, the trade doesn't count. When factoring the total cap numbers, do not include draft picks. They are already counted in your draft allocation, so you would be counting them twice and losing cap space. Please refer to the big board for accurate pick numbers: FOUND HERE ABSOLUTELY NO DISCUSSION IN THIS THREAD. JUST TEAMS POSTING AND CONFIRMING THEIR TRADES.
  9. Bid for what? Everything has always ended at 7pm.
  10. And 13.5 stars for Leary might seem like a ton but I get to avoid OL free agency and that's completely worth it to me. Easily my least favorite FA period.
  11. 4th rounder now available for the best possible player at RB, WR, TE, or CB. Needs to be a somewhat decent salary.
  12. @Inqui Green Bay Packers trade: TE Richard Rodgers (0.5 stars each way) Dallas Cowboys trade: G Ronald Leary (13.5 stars each way)
  13. I'm pretty happy to get Jacquies Smith out of the RFA period. He's coming off of a torn ACL which is always tough, but he put together 2 solid seasons in the years prior. He doesn't do much other than rush the passer, but I'm happy to have a situational guy as my 3rd OLB.
  14. The following were not matched and go to the team that won the bid. Corresponding picks will be moved. S Steven Terrell (ROFR) / 2.5 stars OT Chris Hubbard (ROFR) / 6 stars CB Ross Cockrell (2nd) / 3.5 stars DE Jacquies Smith (ROFR) / 4 stars G Andrew Norwell (1st) / 4.5 stars
  15. Green Bay Packers LB Perry Riley 4 stars
  16. Green Bay Packers LB Dekoda Watson 0.5 stars
  17. Correct. You get one cut where you can ignore the dead money and cut the player and save his entire base salary, regardless of the dead money associated.
  18. This Fisher hiring and firing reminds me of the year where Andy Dalton got traded to like 10 different teams.
  19. They never could figure out his swing. So long and slow. Hard to be a supremely successful hitter, or at least half of what he was expected to be, with those issues.
  20. Correct. You'll just take the draft pick out of that section, and add Thompson into the FA additions at the full 4 stars. That number of players on your roster is designed so you won't have to do anything else other than put in your moves at the exact cost. It eliminates the little bit of math that used to be required, and where we found a ton of mistakes.
  21. I pretty much knew you'd match but when you get a shot at a top 10 CB, you take it. Plus, I just cost the Patriots an additional 4 stars so you're welcome world. I think you could do 1 of 2 things - add it to the FA additions or just up it to the matched price in the RFA section.
  22. Choices to be made: G Ryan Jensen (6th) / 3.5 stars - not being matched by BAL, SF lose 6th round pick OT James Hurst (ROFR) / 2.5 stars - not being matched by BAL S Steven Terrell (ROFR) / 2.5 stars OT Chris Hubbard (ROFR) / 6 stars WR Brandon Coleman (ROFR) / 3 stars - being matched by NO LB Will Compton (ROFR) / 6 stars - not being matched by WAS CB Ross Cockrell (2nd) / 3.5 stars CB Malcolm Butler (1st) / 8 stars - being matched by NE DE Jacquies Smith (ROFR) / 4 stars G Ronald Leary (Transition) / 13.5 stars - being matched by DAL G Andrew Norwell (1st) / 4.5 stars RB Chris Thompson (5th) / 4 stars - not being matched by WAS, NE lose 5th round pick
  23. Definite winner here Winners pending decision on whether or not to match.
