Re: help needed to mange raider cap

if i cant afford to sign a rookie, how do I get the first run at him in FA?

Worried about another team snapping up this RB before I get chance to get my **** together!!

If there were a second free agent signing period you might get a chance. I'm pretty sure if you don't sign him he'll end up on another roster for peanuts without giving you another chance.

If you really want this guy switch the position of your highest paid players in order to lower their ovr and then re-sign them to smaller deals. Switch them back after. Or let him go and then trade for him using picks + half decent FA's with no signing bonus.

Re: help needed to mange raider cap

I've traded alot of players during the draft and have no cap problems in my raiders franchise. Trade only for picks, that way you are still a good team if you draft good (good rookies in later rounds are pretty cheap).
Also, I think there are no cap penaltys if you trade during the draft, but I'm not sure.

Sidenote: How long are those penaltys actually counting against your cap? Is it 1 year or longer?

Re: help needed to mange raider cap

One thing you can do to give relife in the short term is to rework the contracts of players who have a year left. In my second season with the skins I only had 650k in cap room. Portis had 1 year left on his deal (10.mill for that season), I resigned him to a 2 year deal(16.5 mill over 2), and I now have 2.63 million in cap space. That helps sometimes.

So to fix inaccuracy, you traded for Vick?!?

He's not even the best backup on the Eagles.

cap penalty affects for 1 season, it starts in the next offseason, so if you are doing cuts/trades/resigns during FA signing/draft/regular season it wont hit until the next offseason.

Re: help needed to mange raider cap

Keep Russell in 2010, but bench him. Cut him in 2011.

Let Seymour go in 2010.

Cut Walker in 2012.

By 2014, you'll be free. A long time, but by then, your solid draft picks will need to be re-signed, and you'll have the cap room to do it.

Keep Nmamdi. He's worth it. Move him to FS when he turns 30 or 31, and loses speed.
