I’d go the restructuring route, but my assumption is there are limits to how many you get? Can restructured players be traded?Well folks, we got an interesting situation: This is the last year of the CBA. As a result, there are no post June 1st cuts. So I've got two options:
1. Deal with it and suffer since I'm not breaking out all that information
2. I'll finally allow restructures. Caveat being you have to convert everything and you accept what OTC says the number would be.
Well, my taxpayer funded job friend, there are rules and caveats. I'll get into those at another time, but you can trade them. Thing is the dead money you'd incur would make it exceptionally prohibitive to do so.I’d go the restructuring route, but my assumption is there are limits to how many you get? Can restructured players be traded?
No June 1st cuts, you'll get the two tags, I have to delve into the 30% rule, incentives don't matter for us, future void years don't matter for us, second salary cap adjustment will come too late for us, and I don't want to guess at it, carryover for 21 doesn't matter for us, at least now.https://overthecap.com/explaining-some-of-the-different-salary-cap-rules-for-2020/
What other rules we adopting or not adopting?
I'm not sure how you get that. 2020 is the last league year. Being that restructures affect 2020 Salary and push off to 2021 without affecting 2021 salary, it seems like it matters a lot.This is what the CBA says about that 30% rule. I feel like it probably won't effect restructuring.

Nevermind. I just ran the numbers, and OTC's restructure function doesn't follow this rule like I had thought.I'm not sure how you get that. 2020 is the last league year. Being that restructures affect 2020 Salary and push off to 2021 without affecting 2021 salary, it seems like it matters a lot.
It does not, but we still need it since I may still use it this season and DEFINITELY will be using it going forward.We had a great philosophical debate last night (or was it the night before? I lost count) on how OTC does its restructures. We figured it out AFAIK but it didn't take any of the 30% or other fluky caveats into account. I'm still brain fried from that night
From what I've gathered, most years it's the first option, but this year due to the new league year upcoming this year it's the latter.Are we doing the incentives rule to where it lowers next years salary cap if a player meets those incentives, or are we having incentives count towards this years cap?
So for instance with the Saints, using Terron Armstead as an example, his current salary is $16,000,000 with dead money of $6,200,000 if he's cut - I go to calculator and hit restructure and his new salary is $10,622,500. That is OK right because it's less than the $6.2 mil and you still save 5.5 mil? Sorry just trying to figure this out on the fly because my pick is up soon and want to look at this to factor it into who I want to take potentially LOLAlright folks, the time has come. I want to call attention to a plethora of things for the vets since they could impact the pick:
We'll be using rollover cap and rollover dead money.
Anything June 1st is gone. No cuts, no trades.
You'll have a Franny Tag AND a Tranny Tag this year.
In lieu of anything June 1st, you'll now have restructures - but there's a catch. The can only be used on players whose new cap hit would be more than their old dead money. An example:
You can only restructure a player whose new cap # is/would be more than his current dead money number.
So in other words, Foles wouldn't be eligible.
But functionally, you'd go to calculator page on OverTheCap (and if you Spotrac anything, I'll kill you), look at the cap# ($21,837,500), look at the dead money, ($33,875,000), change the drop down from cut to restructure, submit, and then look at the new cap# ($12,338,334)
As you see, his cap# is less than his dead money number and he's not eligible.
Not sure any other big things need to be drawn out. You can message the next person and @ them. Such as I'll do here:
@LovelyLamar you're officially on the clock once again.
