Also per the CBA, the RFA tenders will match the increase of the cap, with a minimum of 5% and maximum of 10%. Since the salary cap will be going up less than 1% per Clayton's numbers, the RFA tenders should be last year's plus 5% or:
1st round compensation $2.88MM
2nd round compensation $2.02MM
original round compensation/right of first refusal $1.32MM
"My life is not easy, but it's awesome." - Steve Gleason
I'm not too worries about starting real soon. I know the people that have already signed up are pretty much regulars, so I'm not too worried about losing any of them. Just thought I would have a few more signed up by now.
Not sure it will work if we don't get more interest. My advice: don't break your fingertips trying if people aren't up for it. I tried to keep a dying fantasy league together and it's all just a fat waste of time.
I wouldn't stress out over it. There's a lot of guys who do these things that just haven't seen anything about your getting started yet. They'll come around. The closer we get to the offseason, the more aware and interested people will be.
Since it's so hard to get accurate total numbers and we have no way of reliably figuring out offsetting dead money from bonuses, we've always only calculated 90% of the base salary for cuts and trades. I'm pretty sure that he mentioned it somewhere.
