## Imd Free Agency Bidding Thread - Offense ##

104 posts in this topic

Post all bids for offensive free agents in this thread. I'm trying to minimize the number of threads that we take up in here this year, so I am doing just an offensive/defensive thread for free agents to start with. If it becomes too much to handle in 2 threads, I may add a couple more threads.

1. Max number of years on an offer is 6 years.

2. Signing bonus must be divisible by the number of years and end with either 250k, 500k, 750k, or 000k.

3. The max signing bonus cannot exceed the year 1 base salary times the number of years on the deal.

4. You really only have to bid on a player once. That gets you into the bidoff over the last 2 days. If you keep upping the bids during this initial period it just makes a lot more work for me. :P

5. Check all of your bids here to make sure they are correct and have been added. If they are not there within 24 hours, send me a PM.

Remember to make your bids look like this just so it's easier for me....

3-year deal with a $1,500,000 signing bonus (bonus equally divisible by the number of years & ends with 250k, 500k, 750k, or 000k)

Year 1 Base Salary $750,000

Year 2 Base Salary $1,000,000

Year 3 Base Salary $2,000,000

Year 1 cap hit is $1,250,000

Total salary is $5,250,000

To explain the cap hit, it is the Year 1 base salary plus the 1 season average of the signing bonus. To figure how much bonus to apply to each year of the deal, I divide the bonus amount by the number of years. The bonus is $1,500,000 on a 3-year deal. So in this case the bonus equals $500,000 per season. Add the $500,000 to the year 1 base of $750,000 and my cap hit is now $1,250,000 for this player.

Example 2

Randy Moss

6 year deal with a $24,000,000 signing bonus

Year 1 base Salary $8,000,000

Year 2 base salary $9,500,000

Year 3 base salary $11,750,000

Year 4 base salary $14,000,000

Year 5 base salary $16,500,000

Year 6 base salary $19,750,000

Year 1 cap hit is $12,000,000

Total salary is $103,500,000

Base salary (8 million) + Prorated signing bonus (24 million/6) = Year 1 cap hit (8 million + 4 million = 12 million)

PLEASE put all your bids in the format of these 2 examples, including the Year 1 cap hit and total salary. It will make it much easier on everyone as they decipher your bids.

I didn't ask before, but would you guys please put the position of the player down in the offers? Just makes it a little easier (less thinking) for me. :)

1 year deals don't really have signing bonuses (at least not in the game). Assumption is the guy will play on the team all season, so no need for a SB. I'm just going to count it all as salary.

Please don't go back & edit old posts. I mark where I left off every time & I don't usually go back above to double check. If you want to change a bid or add another bid, make a new post.

FYI:

If you look on the website, you will see that the FA spreadsheets are color coded.

Yellow means there is 1 bid on a player.

Green means there is at least 2 bids on a player & they are headed to the bidoff on the final 2 days.

Purple means the player has been franchised. You can still bid on a franchised player, but if you win him, it costs you a 1st & 2nd round pick (or 2 picks in the 1st round if you have 2)

Red means nothing, just the way I initially formatted the tables.

Pittsburgh Steelers:

WR Jerricho Cotchery 3yr $3.5Million w/ $900k signing bonus

Year 1: $ 700,000 Base + $ 300,000 Bonus = $1,000,000

Year 2: $ 900,000 Base

Year 3: $ 1,000,000 Base

WR Jerheme Urban 1yr $600k

Year 1: $ 600,000 Base = $600,000

OG Chilo Rachal 1yr $650k

Year 1: $ 650,000 Base = $650,000

Need you to rework all of these. All base salaries have to end with either $250,000; $500,000; $750,000; or $1,000,000.

Also, salary cap be cannot be larger than the base salary in year 1 times the number of years on the deal AND it must divisible by the number of years on the contract if it's not the max deal & it has to end with one of the same 4 values above. For example your 3 year deal....If the base salary moved up to $750,000, then the maximum signing bonus would be $2,250,000 ($750,000 x 3). Your cap hit is then $1,500,000.

You could also do a base salary of $750,000 and a signing bonus of $1,500,000. That's less than the max, but when divided by 3 it is $500,000 a year. That would make your cap hit $1,250,000.
