draft: 3 rd rookie draft, then auction draft. every year after just 3 rd rookie draft
player salaries and draft:
In Rookie Draft:
1st rd: $6mil per year
2nd rd: $3mil
3rd rd: $1mil
5 year contract kicks in year after 150th pass att, 100th rush, 25th reception or 10th fg att.
In Auction Draft: bid total salary (years x salary) max contract 6 years.
Larry Johnson RB KC 100 mil (4 years @ $25,000,000)
only 25mil will count against salary cap for 2006. you cannot release players unless you can eat total remaining salary with your money remaining. So if Larry gets cut from KC and never plays football again, you better have a total roster salary of under 55 mil so you can eat the remaining 3 years @ 25 per year. This will leave you with no money left for 2006, but you will have an extra 25 each of the next 3 years.

2006 Salary 84mil, cap 120mil, left 36mil (19 roster spots left)
Adding players during season (and free agents in off season):
Every tues you will post the player you want to add to your roster. You will post an initial salary (1 yr @ $500k min) everyone gets only 1 bid to increase salary on the player if they choose to bid, including the owner who posted the claim. if 24 hrs passes and you are the highest bidder you claim the waiver wire player. add him to your team and update team salary.
Off season free agents will be bid on before next season starts and after the rookie draft.
You may franchise a player whose contract year is up. 3 yr @ 5mil or x1.25 current salary, which ever is more.
if you drafted R Bush and have him 2 yr @ 1mil. after the 2007 season, instead of him being a FA you can franchise him for 2008-2010 @ 5 mil per year, but then he is a FA in 2011.
You may only have 2 Francise Players on roster at one time, you may not drop or trade a franchise player.
Anyone that is interested in starting up a league like this post here. This is the general idea of the league and I am open to changing or adding rules. Scoring will not be anything crazy, but we can discuss once we have a good number of teams interested.
I would like to get the 2 round rookie draft started by next week so let me know.
