Default '17 GML Tagged & Tendered FA Rules, Info, & Announcements (Post Here)

Post any RFA/ERFA Tenders and your UFA tag of choice (if you wish to utilize one) here.

EXAMPLE:
Team A places the Non Exclusive Franchise Tag on QB A
Team A assigns a 2nd round tender to RB B
Team A assigns a 3rd round tender to WR C
Team A tenders TE D a contract

REMINDER: For unrestricted free agency you may use the Exclusive Rights Franchise Tag OR the Non-Exclusive Rights Franchise Tag OR the Transition Tag.

All tags and tenders must be submitted by March 4th 11:59 PM ET

Exclusive Rights Franchise Tag
An exclusive-rights franchise tag will cost more than a traditional non-exclusive franchise tag however it will allow teams to make sure they get their target without any disturbances. An exclusive-rights franchise tagged player can be added to the team's roster as soon as the deadline to tag/tender players passes. You may NOT trade these players.

Non Exclusive Rights Franchise Tag
A non-exclusive franchise tag will cost a little less than the tag mentioned above however other teams will have an opportunity during free agency to make a bid on the tagged player. If a bid is made on a non-exclusive rights tagged player, you have the option to match the bid or accept compensation from the bidding team. If you accept compensation, you will receive two first round picks from the bidding team.

Transition Tag
A transition tag is even less than the two tags mentioned above and teams will also have an opportunity during free agency to make a bid on the tagged player. However if a bid is made on a transition tagged player, you will only have the option to match the bid. You will receive no compensation from the bidding team if you do not match the bid.

Amount of Tags Per Team
Teams have a choice of using either the Exclusive Rights Franchise Tag OR the Non-Exclusive Rights Franchise Tag OR the Transition Tag. If you tag a player with any of these tags, you cannot tag any other players at all with the other two. This is only for UFAs. ERFAs and RFAs do not count for this.

RFAs/ERFAs
You must place a tender on all the RFA's and ERFA's you have that you plan to keep. Remember you get right to match the salary of what teams offer your players. If you do not, you get compensation based on the tender. ERFA's (Exclusive Rights) will be given a base salary and if they are tendered, no team will have an opportunity to offer that player a contract. Therefore these players can be added to your roster right away if tendered. However, RFA's cannot be added to your roster right away as teams may offer them contracts during free agency. You must account for their salary cap space however. Keep in mind, for players drafted in the 1st or 2nd round originally, you must tender them with that level designation, otherwise you will get a pick one round lower.

Bidding on Tagged UFAs and tendered RFAs
Teams will have until the end of free agency to place bids on players who were given the non-exclusive franchise tag, the transition tag, and RFAs who were tendered at any level. That player's respective team and GM will decide whether to match the offer or accept compensation. Your bid must be higher than what the respective tag/tender they received. You either have to give that team a higher pick or trade for a pick to give him before you can bid on the player. You cannot bid on or sign a tendered restricted free agent or a franchise player if you do not have the picks to give up.

TRADING A TAGGED/TENDERED FREE AGENT
You may trade a tagged or tendered players' rights as soon as they are tendered, with the acquiring team also gaining the right of first refusal and potential compensation. However the player cannot be cut. This includes if the player is traded to a new team, he still cannot be cut. Reminder, players that were Exclusive Tagged are still NOT eligible to be traded.
