Before trades get too outta control and cap penalties hoop your team for the next season which results in quitters and no replacements because the team is 30mil in cap pens.....the easiest way i've found is if you pretend to release a player it wil tell you exactly what the penalty is and if you look at team salaries in the strategy part you can figure out what the pen will be this season and next............for example

eagles trade mccoy whos's contract is 6y with 6y remaining and a bonus of 15m which reslults in a 15m cap pen hit 2.5m this season and 12.5 next season

panthers are already 18.6m in cap pen for next season from various trades he's already made

Cap penalty= total bonus divided by years, multiplied by years remaining,
10m bonus 5 year contract 2 mi per season with 4 years left gets you a cap pen of 8m with 2m this season and all of the rest for next season 6m in this case
10m bonus 5 years contract 2 years left 4m cap pen 2m this year and 2m next

I think it's really important for parity in the league that under no whiner circumstances that cap ever gets turned off as there is no option to turn it back on other that restarting lg.

Well written. Nice job explaining how the salary / bonus works and effects your team. Playing on offline franchise into my second season, when signing players I lowered their bonus offer to practicably nothing and they still signed, which of course will help with future cap penalties when or if I should release the player.

quick question on this, when do the actually cap penalties happen? like in the next off-season? or right at the end of the draft or what?

from what i understand is there is a reserved amount of cap space at the end of the season to sign rookies so for example.....
130M cap
less rookie reserve(approx 8M)
less cap penalty
less already signed players
=what you have left to resign and sign fa's
