EXCLUSIVE RIGHTS FREE AGENCY

Starting during the S7 Offseason (leading into Season 8 ) Exclusive Rights Free Agency will work with a new mechanic.


TIME MANAGEMENT

Instead of having the chance to sit and talk and offer deals to all of your free agents during the allotted time of ERFA, you will now play under a new set of rules.

Each GM will have "24 hours" of time to manage during the ERFA period.

As a GM you will have to decide how that time will be used when approaching your players who are now free agents.
Each form of communication will cost a certain amount of time, and each will have a different effect.   Those options are:

Text Message to Agent - (2 hours)
This option is a simple PM with no other information other than the years, salary, and PR on your contract offer.  Any other dialog other than very standard pleasantries will result in moving up to the next level of offers.

Phone Call to Agent - (4 hours)
This option allows you to pm an offer to the agent, along with your vision for that player on the team (sales pitch for the deal).

Conference call to Agent and Player - (6 hours)
This option allows your sales pitch to also reach the player, bringing him more into the negotiation.

In home visit with Player and Agent - (8 hours)
This option allows you to travel to the players home to meet with him, giving you an even stronger platform to make your sales pitch, showing the player how important he is to your franchise.



Once Exclusive Rights Free Agency begins, you will be responsible for monitoring your time. If you exceed the 24 hours allowed by the league during this period, you are subject to a fine or loss of a draft pick.

EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY

Teams will no longer have the option to trade a players "ERFA signing rights"

You are only allowed to trade a player who you have under contract, meaning either a currently contracted player or a player who you have placed the franchise tag on.

Once you send the league office the notice of using the franchise tag on a certain player, I will update the post with the contract figure based on either the franchise tag scale or the 25% raise, depending on which category your player falls into.  AFTER that time, the player is under contract for the 1 year and can either be negotiated with to sign a long term deal potentially or traded.

Once the franchise tag has been used by your team, you have no more franchise tag to use.
