RFA's typically leave some money on the table for longer contracts. So I'm fine with RFA's have more cap friendly deals, because when they hit UFA, we all know that they want the big money there. So yeah, come time where my guys are 28 years old, I can't keep 4 or 5 of them. So it'll be decision time.

I personally have no issues with how Jax conducted RFA. I like the one UFA Resign. I think we need to slightly adjust the UFA Age, UFA Resign Contracts, and make UFA a bit more fun. My personal belief is you win by drafting/trading, and UFA is there to fill in one hole. Not to make your team a super star team over night.

I like the idea of age rollback and decreases keeps prospects from getting out of hand.

I hate the idea of for every year a players age is rolled back, they drop 1 OV as basically the longer they have been in the league the harder they fall.

Keeping the same two examples:

Boone Jenner becomes OV78, age 23, $6mil FROM OV84, age 29, $6mil
Ryan MacInnis becomes OV77, age 20, $2mil FROM OV80, age 23, $2mil

That's completely out of whack... Jenner who I've spent so much time and effort into developing and making my marquee player is no longer the best guy on my team in terms of value. Let alone his contract would now stink!

I suggest for the following:

Age reduced 1-2 years drop in 1OV
Age reduced 3-4 years drop in 2OV
Age reduced 5+ years drop in 3OV

That way, the above would be:

Boone Jenner becomes OV81, age 23, $6mil FROM OV84, age 29, $6mil
Ryan MacInnis becomes OV78, age 20, $2mil FROM OV80, age 23, $2mil

Jenner then stays as my marquee player! Contracts still would seem a little iffy!

Also rolling back ages means some guys will become RFA's that were once UFA's - that kinda isn't right!
