Question for the commissioners regarding re-signing players.

Da rulez wrote:Re-signing players:

To resign a player after their contract has run out, the base salary will be the average of the top 5 highest paid players at that position. If you choose not to resign a player, they will be up for free agency bidding.


When calculating the base salary for re-signing, do you use the five highest paid players based on Average Yearly Salary or do you use their salaries from the previous year? I only ask because a lot of teams have been front-loading contracts, and if we've been using previous year's salaries, the franchise number for a couple of positions, especially wide receiver, could be astronomically high.

Sorry, dream usually calculates that, so I'm not sure. :-/


Those front loaded contracts worried me at the time....not against the current rules, but maybe we should look at that for future seasons. :-o ;-D

Sorry man...I can't find anything about when our trade deadline is. :-/ :-?


I sent a PM to dream to see if he can shed some light on that and the question posed by steelers. ;-D


Have a Happy Thanksgiving everyone! ;-D :-)

It is the actual salary being paid for the current year - so, it will be the 2011 salary of the top 5 to create the re-signing amount. The numbers recently have been within the same range, if they start to become outragous then we will take a look at the issue (vote/rule change)

If you use 2011 salary to calculate the 2011 re-signing number, then I don't think there will be an issue, since most of the front-loaded contracts only have absurdly high salaries for 2010. Thanks for the clarification. ;-D
