    Cool 2013 RFN IMD: Discussion Thread

    Use this area to discuss ANYTHING related to our IMD this year.Ask questions here as well for those that CAN NOT send PM's.

    Also, as of now, ALL cap are updated as well as any tendered RFA's & released players are updated on my copies for the FA phases to come..

    Lastly, the tender,franchise & release phases WILL END tomorrow(23rd) @ 6pm EST.That is the FINAL adjustment!

    I'm proud to announce that the Minnesota Vikings have been sold to Sarah Palin. Our new owner has just released that the team has been moved to Anchorage Alaska and will become the Anchorage Otters. Alaska residents would like to express their excitement to all fans across the world. Go Otters

    The board is set, the pieces are moving. We come to it at last, the great battle of our time.

    *** UPDATE *** ALL franchise, tenders & player releases have been completed as of 6pm EST this evening.We will have the 1st phase of FA starting soon.I'll need to finalize the UFA list & add those that were RFA's that were NOT tendered to place them into the UFA pool.Look for that thread & time to start that phase.Rules for that will be there, as well as examples on contract layouts.

    Just my luck... I'm the Lions GM, and right after we started, Several of my players restructured their contracts or took a massive payout. Dominic Raiola had a 4.0Mill Base salary, and he just agreed to play for the veteran minimum-900k. Nate Burleson already restructured and Suh and Stafford will restructure soon.

    All these moves could potentially have cleared over 10-15 Million In cap space for me. But because all these moves occurred days after we started, "all NFL news" is irrelevant. Darn.

    Would not have made a difference really.I make the cap space for all teams so everyone can inneract throughout the whole process.

    So Ive released a malcontent CB who was on enhancers and not playing to the level his contract, and traded for flynn as competition for the QB spot. Now I have to look at who i want to keep in my own free agent pool. I think I am up to date with all of this.

    I believe my biggest needs besides free agent round up are CB and getting a back up safety for old ass Barber if I resign him since the 2012 back up looks like his injuries are bad.

    I am trying to decide on a premium free agent/trade-for CB or go young from the draft.

    this game is more like a job lol. Im just glad I have some good cap room.

    One thing I am really focusing on is letting the Tampa Bay fan base know they have a rookie GM but Im doing my best. My coaches still think Im just some lunatic and wont watch old Raider footage with me in the film room, and Chucky wont return my calls to come back and coach for us so I dont know what I'm going to do about that. The owner that hired me after a few I Phone texted interviews is still in Tijuana since the Superbowl ended. The NFL is a crazy business.

    Miami has their eye on an unnamed restricted free agent on a different team. Were they suppose to make an offer during the franchise/tender phase or is there another phase where you can make offers on other teams RFA's?
