Canít trade for due to CPU over the cap in CFM

So yesterday I finished my season and enter the offseason. I go to the trading block and see the Eagles have TE Goedert there. Iím looking to upgrade my TE depth. The catch is I canít trade for him because the Eagles are over the cap. Why canít I? Iím helping them! Any way around this? I tried in free agency, preseason and now before week 1. Still the same message. Any suggestions?

For offline CFMs, take control of their coach, cut players to get them under the cap, then retire the coach.

If you're in an online CFM, you're screwed.

Just to add on to this in case someone else has this problem in an online cfm. Online you can just edit the contracts of the cpu team to get them cap space.

You can also turn salary cap OFF. But be aware, you can't turn it back on once you turn it off.

Re: Canít trade for due to CPU over the cap in CFM

I'm wondering if turning it off would help the CPU. They clearly struggle with it and it throws the competitive balance off since I can manage it much better. But then again it will routinely load up on positions that eat up so much salary cap especially at QB paying essentially 2 starters at that position.
