    That should be ridiculous....it's just too bad you have noodle arm Andy throwing the ball.

    I will take them. Thanks. Any idea what Ross's injury rating is?

    I'm posting this now and will post this tomorrow. The team trade period is NOT open so don't bother with it yet. I just want to get the process/clarification out there so if there are any questions about it, I can work those out before it opens up tomorrow.
    --------------------------------

    For one of the first times ever in AP Madden history (for this process and ONLY this process) you do NOT have to have team trade discussions in this thread. You are welcome to talk and solicit your team for trade here all you’d like, but I’m not requiring it.

    If you want to work out a trade with another team via PM or whatever, knock yourselves out.

    However, ALL team trades must go through myself first via PM and that will work like this:

    Once you and another user have a trade worked out and are ready to finalize it, you will contact me via PM and let me know all the details.

    All I am looking for here is to make sure that it is at least somewhat balanced. I’m not looking for 100% fairness because I realize someone might be willing to give up a little more to get a specific team.

    What I am looking for is to make sure someone isn’t being absolutely fleeced so please don’t come to me with proposed trades that are ridiculously one sided—outside of that, I’m likely approving anything that comes through me.

    A few things to keep in mind when having these discussions:

    —Cap space. I know the cap doesn’t reflect in game as it does in the real life cap implications but its at least close. Make sure the players you trade away aren’t going to cripple your team cap wise. I may be looking for this when reviewing any proposal. If you want to deal a high dollar player in a deal, that’s fine but you just are going to need to understand and be ready to work your cap around your dead money when the league year starts.

    —Draft picks: If you are trading a team and are including picks, make sure you own those picks first. Remember, this game DOES reflect the picks your team has in real life. So if you want the Eagles, you cannot send a 2nd or 3rd round pick this year in your deal because the Eagles currently do not own a 2nd (CLE) or a 3rd (BUF) this year.

    This process will go until THURSDAY, AUGUST 17th at 4PM EST. At that time, the list will be finalized and whatever open teams are then open to those who may join at a later time.

    Finally, you are only allowed ONE TEAM TRADE. If you trade your current team for another team, that’s it. You can’t deal for a team and then try to flip for another team—that’d be too tough to keep track of and I just don’t want to do it.

    Any questions?

    EDIT: Once a trade has been approved by me and executed, I will notify the thread of that deal at that time.

    EDIT2: So if you are interested in trading for a team, I would suggest you reach out to that owner and work it out (or not) when the window opens because if they are dealt once---that's it.

    EDIT3: All league members may participate in this trade process. If you received a team in the re-draft, that does not preclude you from participating in this process if you want. All teams are allowed to execute ONE team trade in this trade process should you so choose.

    Before I bail out for the night....want to post one more time for those who are lagging behind about today's happenings and where the league currently stands:

    The Re-Draft Process is NOW Enabled.

    Don't like the team you were drafted with today? You have two chances to change that and today is the first opportunity.

    The teams that were NOT drafted today are as follows:

    Pittsburgh Steelers
    Houston Texans
    Indianapolis Colts
    Kansas City Chiefs
    Oakland Raiders
    Dallas Cowboys
    Minnesota Vikings
    Carolina Panthers
    New Orleans Saints
    St. Louis Rams

    If you see a team here that you would like to enter the second chance lottery to try and obtain, you must do the following:

    1) SEND ME A PRIVATE MESSAGE (DO NOT QUOTE IN THIS THREAD)

    2) Use something similar to the format below

    • CURRENT TEAM:
    • 2ND CHANCE TEAM SELECTION:

    3) Send it. You are now entered into the second chance draft lottery


    This must be completed absolutely no later than 2PM EST Sunday (Tomorrow) as I will not take any entries after this time. The team re-draft will take place at the same time as today's draft (6PM EST).

    Please also understand that you only get ONE selection for this process so use it wisely, if you elect to use it at all. If you see two teams you want to swap to, you might want to choose the team here that many others won't as you will stand a better chance of being drawn.

    If your name is NOT drawn in this process, you will have to keep your team until the final team trade process which will begin tomorrow and will be further explained at that time.

    I am asking you to PM me your selection rather than post it in the thread so it as intended, an unknown lottery. Once we close the selection process at 2PM EST tomorrow, I will post the re-draft names and their selections PRIOR to conducting the re-draft so everybody knows their odds.

    Just under three hours until the re-draft entry is locked down.

    I'm going to add one more tiny process at the very end of all of this (after team trade period)

    If there is an open team you want at that point, you will be able to move to that team ONLY if it makes sense from a conference/divisional balance standpoint.

    No other exceptions will be made.

    Remember how I ranked my team preferences 1-32?

    I literally got 32/32.
