Help with negative funds in owner mode? (Jaguars CCM)

Hey guys, I wanted to run with the Jaguars and relocated them to LA, my friend did a similar move in Madden 25 and made them the Aftershocks.
I clearly didn't pay attention enough to the financial side, simming the whole first season (and last as Jacksonville) so I could get right to making them contenders again in the City of Angels. We went 1-15 as I hoped for, getting the first pick in the draft. With that and salary cap off I figured some free agent bids and a stockpile of picks would turn us around quickly.

That's where I was wrong, not even considering that a horrid record like that would not bring in any fans and that my cap room was lying to me. The new-look "Crusaders" were shaping up well with additions like Randall Cobb, Larry Donnell, Hakeem Nicks, Tashaun Gipson, etc.. buutt by the preseason I was -$62M in funds. Upping my offers and giving out huge bonuses as a bad team was dumb but I figured with salary cap off it wouldn't make a difference. You need to be in the positive or they'll force you to retire so what the heck.
From what I've read you can try to clear cap penalties, make a new character, make with your roster and win the Super Bowl, do 1-year deals with your FAs, or maybe trade away your big contracts.. but you cannot restructure salaries. Is there anyway to reverse this?

Thanks for any input, if I'm screwed I'll think try again with the Raiders.

the problem is that an idiot spent 2 seconds coding last gen ccm. the problem is cash, the logic in the game is that all bonus monies over all years of a contract are taken from your current cash balance with immediate affect.

that simple error means unless you win you cant resign anyone, if you have more away games at the start of the season you are on a hiding to nothing

my simplistic understanding was that salary cap for teams was their 1/32nd share of the tv revenue deal made by the NFL. you dont pay all years bonuses to a player when you sign the deal. teams have to spend a minimum of their cap every year, and a maximum on rookies

stadium costs, coaching staff, admin, marketing etc have to be covered by revenue from merchandise, ticket sales, local sponsorship, advertising etc

A signing bonus is a bonus that you get just for signing.. I figured that was what the bonus was.

there are usually a signing bonus and other bonuses in contracts; for example sack numbers, pro bowl appearances etc.
i think Madden views guaranteed money as bonus regardless of type of bonus

I figured it out, guys. You just have to retire as an owner and become the coach. Sucks that I have to work around it like that because I like managing stuff but at least I have the $$$ to sign players now.

In reality yes, in Madden, no.

To the OP, building a stadium also takes a devastating and immediate financial toll. Stadium leases are also wonky, because teams don't pay anything unless you build a new stadium. So in addition to the slam of building a new facility, you get hit weekly with lease fees, making it even harder to turn a profit given the FUBAR revenue sharing.

I find it amusing that the OS icon for NAU is 10 years (and two rebrands!) out of date.
