Timeline of Events
It has been suggested that I post a timeline of events so everyone knows what is going on.
Tuesday, Feb 14 - 15 - Initial cuts, application of franchise tags and RFA tenders, trading opened up
Thursday, Feb 16 - Free Agency will open at 12:01am eastern time. Teams will have until 11:59pm eastern on Friday, Feb 17 to submit offer sheets to me via email. Cuts and trades may continue to happen in this time.
Saturday, Feb 18 - Once the window for submitting free agent offers has closed, I will take some time (hopefully no more than 24 hours) to determine where players will sign in the first round of free agency.
Sunday, Feb 19 - The 2nd round for signing free agents has opened and will remain open until 11:59pm eastern on Monday, Feb 20. I will take some time (hopefully no more than 24 hours) to determine where players will sign in the second round of free agency. Players will sign deals lower than where they are listed if they do not receive better deals. Cuts and trades may continue to happen in this time. Also, please include guys in your 2nd email even if you "low-balled" them the first time through. This will help avoid confusion on my end.
Distant Future - The Draft. More on this as we approach.
End of Draft - Thurs, March 1 11:59pm EST
Once the draft is completed, you may begin sending in your emails with offers for the 3rd round of FA (works just like the previous two rounds) and UDFAs.
Each team will be allotted 30 "UDFA points" to spend on up to 8 UDFA players. To sign one, simply put the players name (in order of preference) followed by the amount of points you wish to spend on that player. Whoever spends the most points on that player will get him. If two teams offer the same amount, the one higher in the draft order will get him. (For instance, if the Colts and Giants both bid 5 points on a player, the Colts will get him.)
You don't have to submit offers to any UDFAs if you don't want any. Or, you can bid all of your points on just one guy. Or send in 30 names with 1 point bids each. (You'll get the top 8 you successfully bid for.)
Please send this as a SEPARATE email than your 3rd round veteran free agent offers and put "UDFA" somewhere in the subject line.
If you need further clarification, please ask. This will also have the 11:59pm Thursday night deadline.
