Just a thought if all NFL rookies are given a 4 yr. contract why do we only give 3 yr. contracts to 2nd and 3rd round draft picks? Should be an easy rule change. Part of the fun fun is finding needles in the haystack...

We already do this. From the league rules:
Prior to the 2016 league year all drafted rookies were given a 4 year contract with a 5th year option. Beginning with the 2016 league year all rookies drafted in the 1st round are given a 4 year contract with a 5th year option. All rookies drafted in the 2nd and 3rd rounds are given a 4 year contract without the 5th year option. This 5th year option must be exercised prior to the start of the UFA period. Drafted rookies are eligible to be placed on the Developmental Squad (DS) prior to the automatic 4 year contract option being applied. Once a drafted rookie is placed on the DS the DS rules apply.

Rookie contracts (drafted and undrafted) work the same in Tecmo as they do in the NFL.

However... in the NFL, UDFAs also automatically become RFAs after year 3. I think we've basically gotten rid of restricted free agency but maybe we should bring it back for UDFAs.

Ok for example...I picked up Joe Reed, he was drafted in the NFL 5th round, has a 4 year contract in the NFL. But only has a 3 year contract here???? Same with a couple more of my players...and i'm sure with other teams also.

That must be part of the new collective barganing agreement because rookie contracts were always 3 year deals.

It's all 4 years, 7th round included. While we are here on the subject, why don't we give NFL UDFA's 4 years also, the odds are against them,but I'm the one who's has take the cap hit, and manage my roster. ?

I thought in tecmo, all drafted rookies are 4 years... 1st rounders just get the 5th year option.

And UDFAs are 3 years... Just like the NFL.

Is citsalp saying some of his contracts aren't in line with this?

You're right. I'm not sure what I was thinking.

I think he's arguling that a player was drafted in the NFL draft so he gota 4 year deal but only gets a 3 year deal in our league because he wasn't drafted in our Tecmo League fantasy draft?

Okay... that's correct then. For Tecmo, it doesn't matter where a player is selected in the NFL draft. It matters where he's selected in OUR draft. So to get the 4 year contract, YOU have to draft him in Tecmo.

If you sign him via a bidding thread, then he's a UDFA... so he gets 3 years. His NFL contract doesn't matter. Lots of players are signed to contracts in Tecmo that don't match their NFL contract length.

His NFL draft slot and contract are irrelevant. He was not drafted in Tecmo, and you signed him as a UDFA. Therefore, he gets 3 years.

This is a 14 team fantasy football league. There will be difference between what we do and what happens in the NFL.
