|So we have officially made it to the offseason.
Before I start the process of advancing contracts and running progressions I have had a rule change request made to me. I have decided to bring it to the League to consider.
Some leagues allow teams to resign certain players who are not coming off a rookie contract but a secondary contract. An example is if a player is drafted at 18, he would finish his rookie contract three years later at 21, so you could always sign him. If you gave him another 3 year contract, he would have those three years plus the PC year so he would become a free agent at 25. The owner who proposed this change would like for the team to be able to sign that player again at this point.
The league has never done this before, and I am a bit hesitant to implement a rule like it just because I feel it could water down our free agency process too much. So if we do consider it I think we may need to add some stipulations such as a mandatory minimum raise per season or a maximum number of players who could be signed this way. I will give until Tuesday night to discuss this on the chat box and then put up a poll to see how the league feels about it and at that point we will move on with the offseason
