Draft

In scouting news:
Tennessee FS Sintamuel Pearson won the Heisman Trophy this winter.
Pittsburgh RB Jalen Saunders is getting a lot of hype.
Miami ROLB Marc Means looked "beastly" at the all-star game.
Yale TE Jack Stumph stood out at TE in a college all-star game.
Georgia LG Philip Foster is reported to be pathetically weak for a linemen since he hates working out.

The San Diego Chargers resigned QB Christian Ponder, CB Brandon Flowers, and franchise-tagged TE Ladarius Green. The signing of Ponder does not guarantee he is the starter next year. 

Longtime QB Philip Rivers leaves as a FA, as does oft-injured RB Ryan Mathews.

According to this thread http://www.operationsports.com/forums/madden-nfl-football/758243-cant-resign-players-due-lack-available-funds.html .. the dynamics of finances in this game is jacked. I wasn't able to resign anyone else after franchise tagging Green.

I went 13-3 and barely had enough funds to resign Doug Martin and tag Lavonte David, should be interesting to see how this plays out.

This is what that Operation Sports post Ken linked said:
OS Post wrote:
The bonus i dont think is the issue, the bonus does take out of the funds, but it is the same as last year. If i give a player a five year contract with $200 k bonus, that is $1 million which will be taken out immediately. No different from last year, salary not taken into account.
That isn't entirely true, most signing bonuses are paid upfront when they sign the contract. For salary cap/accounting purposes they spread the cap hit out over the life of the contract (known as prorating). It is way teams are able to manipulate the salary cap limit and spend over it. If the player is cut he has already received his money but since the team prorated it still counts against them (dead money). Roster and workout bonuses are paid out over the life of the contract but those are completely separate.
Also, just a heads up, if you franchise tag someone it takes half the tag value out of your funds. So you franchise someone for 10 it takes 5 from funds. Figured that one out!
Part of the owner mode is listening to your advisors. The fans complaints change over time, and by adjusting your prices with them, you stand to make more money. You can't scam them like last year apparently by jacking up the price and selling things anyway.  I try different combos to see what works to drive in revenue.

And then roster spending. The only major guaranteed money on my defense goes to Lamarr Houston, Willie Young, Tim Jennings, and Charles Tillman. Offense is a different story. But my defense has a ton of young players, and average players that fit my style. My LBs have no pass rush skills, but they're ok in coverage and run reaction.  My DEs don't have any run stuffing, but are ok at pass rushing. They're not amazing, but the cap prevents me from building out a monster defense since my offense is so top heavy with elite players.  You can see the 49ers shed a ton of guys over time because they're so stacked they can't afford them.

65 overall players are not necessarily scrubs and can be great special teamers with the right attributes.

My question is this: after resigning players I'm at -$2 mil available funds. Will more be available during free agency? Or is that it?

I'm not sure Ken. You might have to cut some dead weight to fill a roster. There's no tickets/concessions to sell. Not sure if merchandise sales and league revenue sharing happen during the offseason.

Also, I haven't advance yet and I'm sorry. I have a screaming 4 year old niece who didn't like being put in time out. Either she's a klutz, or she's punishing me as revenge, and my PS4 controllers, and tv/stereo remotes are nowhere to be found (damn she's good). I'm taking her back to her house, and then have another family thing to handle. Commando will be advancing as soon as he gets home from work since the EA site is now telling me I'm not in any leagues.

Nope, it looks like Harbaugh's contract ended after the Super Bowl. I was wondering about that.

You have to go to the staff screen where it shows your coach, scout, and trainer.  If you can fire your coach it will show the square button down on the bottom left of the screen.

The Pittsburgh Steelers edged the Chicago Bears in the Super Bowl. So close to proving I'm the best GM in the game. You win this time computer.
