      UPDATED: MESSAGE BOARDS CLOSING AFTER DRAFT   03/08/2017

      After careful consideration, we have decided that we will sunset our message boards after this year's NFL Draft. Since we opened our boards a decade ago, the digital landscape has greatly evolved. While we understand there remains a smaller group of highly-engaged fans who participate in conversation in our forums, a significant amount of the dialogue about our team and our games has migrated away to other social media platforms over the past several years. Our message boards will remain up and running through Friday, May 5th, and will be removed on May 6th. We recognize that this change may upset avid members of our community. However, we look to utilize our time and resources to focus on how we can best connect with our fans across an array of digital/social outlets. If you are not already engaging us and other members of the Ravens Flock on our Facebook page, Instagram account, through Twitter or Snapchat, we invite you to follow us on those channels and continue to participate in our social communities. In addition, the commenting feature on our website articles will remain intact. Members will be able to continue using their boards account to log in and share their thoughts at the bottom of every news story. We’d like to thank all the Flock members and our moderators who have brought thoughtful conversation to this space and made our community great for the last 10 years. Ravens Social Media Hub »

2017 Forum Mock: RFA Bidding | Special Teams Free Agency

108 posts in this topic

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 FiveNO 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.
