To bid on a free agent, create a thread with his name as the subject, and in the body post your bid in years and total dollars. An offer must stand as the highest bid for 24 hours before it is accepted. An offer is the high bid if it contains the highest TOTAL dollar amount over the life of the contract. Contracts that GMs create in free agency are limited to being between 1 and 4 years in length. You may not sign a free agent if the signing takes your team over the cap ($65,000,000). The only exception to this is if it is to the minimum contract ($500,000). The minimum you may offer a free agent is $500,000. The mimimum increase to an offer for a free agent is $100,000. If your team has more than 15 players on it's roster. You must first release a player before you can sign another. You must wait for your player to be recognized by a staff member and released before starting a thread to bid on a free agent. No more than two Free Agents can be signed in 1 week (real-time) by each team. The maximum amount that a contract can increase or decrease each year is by 15% of the previous year in the contract. Contracts offered must not contain Team or Player Options. We allow the existence of TOs & POs in Off Season Free Agency because you're dealing with Player Agents. Regular Season Free Agency concerns itself only with the monetary size of a bid.
