Okay, we are good to go for the next steps. (no email went out for league 1, due to a technical error).
We are gearing up for another exciting year of Sandbox Simulations. You have
an immediate important task to complete. You can sign up to two (2) of your
players whose contracts have expired to new long term contracts. Go to the manage roster page of your sandbox team, set the contract length for the player(s) you want to keep using the selector, and then click the sign all contracts button. Remember that you can only extend two players. You are required to sign them to a contract of 5 or more years. The cost of the contract can be seen in the table at the top of
manage roster page. You need to complete this task before the draft starts.
At that time, all players with zero years remaining on their contracts will
becoem free agents.
DO NOT RELEASE ANY PLAYERS AT THIS TIME UNLESS YOU ARE
SURE YOU DO NOT WANT TO RETAIN THEM THROUGH FREE AGENCY.
The other big event coming up is the 2013 rookie draft. It will start on
Friday at 6:00 PM EDT. In the mean time, you can set your draft board to get
ready for the draft.
