To summarize...
FFMD's last wheel on the shopping cart of mocks finally gave out, it appears. Total Control is about to run their second mock of the season and I am really amped up. Mock time to me is like what spring break is to kids in Panama City Beach. I have control of the New England Patriots. For those unaware, Total Control takes place on here but use a large portion of the mock on or with Google Docs. It does not take much time to get used to.
I plan to run TCMD individually, but will be keeping track of my moves in this sub-forum as suggested. Any input, advice, feedback, grief, etc is welcomed Wink

I'd be glad to hear it! Cool

And I know, kind of weird it couldn't get filled considering this and BDP's mock got filled Mich quicker.

Interest in FFMD was waning, even last year I had to be asked by the overseeing mod team to be the GM for the Pats again. It is a huge undertaking for a long period of time, but at the same time a ton of fun.

Strictly, my opinion but I agree with you that it is a "huge undertaking for a long period of time" to the point it has become a choir rather than enjoyment.

Like Justin was saying, that it doesn't take a lot of time to get used to this mock, as I've spent a lot of time preparing for it each year.

The structure for free agency has its good and bad, the bad is that you aren't given the luxury to bid on as many players as you want, like the shark tank, but truthfully the shark tank design is too labor intensive anyway.

The good is that you aren't restricted on who you bid on during the free agency, talent or no talent they're all available to you to bid on.

The results of each round of bidding is given out much faster, because there aren't "agents" or the need to sales pitch an offer, its highest bid wins (with some tweaks on the backside based on contract length, APY and Bonus money being offered). By providing less wait times to see where players land, it allows for better game planning for each round.

For what its worth I hope you guys enjoy it.

Getting Started
Today was the first official day to re-sign restricted free agents and what not. These are the moves I made, I think they all make sense.

ERFA resigned
0243 - Brandon King - S
1279 - Justin Coleman - CB
1598 - Matt Lengel - TE

King is phenomenal on special teams and I think he's good a real role on this team and would like to bring him forward. Coleman is young and played well two seasons ago. Last year his play sort of fell off but I'm not gonna give up on him yet. Lengel has shown potential as a #3 TE, no reason not to keep him at least as a body.

RFA
1515 - Malcolm Butler - CB ; ROFR - 1st Round Tender

Malcolm Butler is our best corner, there's no logical reason to not give him a deal. Basically, the first round tender means that if a team attempts to sign Butler, I can accept their offer and I would assume the rights to their first round pick. But I plan to get an extension done with the former Popeye's emoyee-turned Superbowl hero a deal done soon.

Franchise Tag
0761 - Donta Hightower - 43OLB ; Exclusive Rights Franchise Tag.

Hightower will get this tag to prevent him from hitting free agency. I will get him the extension he deserves. He is the heart of this defense now and will be the leader for years to come.



Cap Situation
The cap space is updates automatically for me, but is maintained and kept track of by the big dogs at Total Control, so I wanna give a shout out to them for all the amazing work they do Applause Applause Applause I will get an idea of what our cap space looks like moving forward here shortly. It doesn't mean much though, considering Hightower's tag will get an extension. There are other immediate moves I intend to make as well that will cause that number to fluctuate and wiggle for the team Wink


Quarterback Controversy
The early bird gets the worm, unless it doesn't. Teams are calling about, you guessed it-


Jimmy Garoppolo. The suspects are the suspected offenders in real life as well. Chicago, San Francisco, Arizona, and a few others have come knocking to see what it takes to get the young potential franchise QB on their squad. Without revealing the offers for the sake of leverage, most teams are including packages that have young players.

Free Agency
Free agency bids are open for us to get our hands on via Google Docs. The mass list of players composed is impressive. I don't need my offers in for a while, although I am actively looking. I have a few guys in mind, but nothing is concrete yet. I don't have the date off the top of my head and I'm using my cell, but the positions I'm looking to spend some money on are the defensive line and the offensive line...., so here is how this Free Agency mock works, so you all are informed who are following along. Each player is assigned a grade. (average of their Madden and their PFF grades) From that grade, each player is assigned an AVERAGE PER YEAR (APY) Salary that they "demand". In order to sign that player, you must at least offer a contract at or above APY. The bidding goes in rounds. You can offer a contract to any 3 free agents and 1 resign offer per round of bidding. The APY decreases 10% every round that player goes without a contract offer.

TRADE!


Quote:
New England receives:
0928 - Hau'oli Kikaha - 43OLB
1445 - Landon Turner - RG
2017 7th round pick
2018 7th round pick

New Orleans receives:
2187 - Tre Jackson - OG
0736 - Dion Lewis - RB




Hau'oli Kikaha
Kikaha brings a lot to the table as a player. He's pretty fluid in coverage and appears to always be around the ball. He can apply pressure like a high school teacher giving a pop quiz. He recently tore his ACL, for the third time. But he's got enough drive and determination to come back at 100%, his injury rehab was last reported as going "extremely well"! We anticipate him to be ready come next summer, and he fills a major void at outside linebacker.



Landon Turner
Turner went undrafted, but logged more and more playing time as the season went on and his career is trending no where but upwards.

Thoughts on losing Jackson and Lewis
Tre Jackson became expendable after Coach Scarr ignited the flame in our DL which caused Joe Thuney and Shaq Mason to step up as legit starting guards in the league. Tre Jackson is a solid prospect, but missed all of last season and wasn't as sharp as a rookie like he was projected to be the season before either.
Dion Lewis is hell of a player and so fun to watch. He helps our offense greatly, but man. James White proved himself in the Super Bowl after a mediocre campaign-of-a-career until then, and will be my new Kevin Faulk. It hurts losing Dion, but I am excited for White to get more touches and be the clear top receiving back for the first time in his career.
We also gained a 7th rd pick this year, and one the following year.

Quote:
New England receives:

for

Jacksonville receives:
4th Round (#130)




T.J. Yeldon
Jacksonville has given up on soon to be third year back, T.J. Yeldon. Yeldon was a stud at 'Bama and had a successful rookie year running with 182 carries for a smooth 740 yards at 4.1 ypc. This past season was not a total wash, as he nabbed 50 receptions but had poor rushing performances that ended with his season on IR. Yeldon is not to blame, the Jaguars offense was a dumpster-fire and now that Yeldon will be able to run behind a competent offensive line- I may have just gotten a hell of a deal.

TRADE!

Quote:
New England receives:
2258 - Ufomba Kamalu - 34DE

Houston receives:
1991 - Sebastian Vollmer - RT




Ufomba Kamalu
Kamalu can play any position on the defensive line. His long arms and shear strength are a problem any time he lines up, but he doesn't really excel in any area. Not real explosive, but generates pressure. I think he will be a good carry until the pre-season at the least.



Sebastian Vollmer
Losing Sebastian Vollmer hurts more in my heart than it hurts the team. Lol. Really though, Vollmer has probably played his last snap IRL as well. He lsot his starting job to Marcus Cannon and there are reports coming out that he may retire this offseason. Despite that, the Texans wanted to bring the big German back to Houston. Farewell, SeaBass.

I'm hoping we land Hightower at closer to what Jamie got from the Browns

I 100% am sure I overpaid him. But honestly, why not? We have the cap space. The salary cap rises more and more every year. The money is not an issue. If Dont'a can stay on the field is the issue. The APY of $15,930,024 is only $3M more than that of Luke Keuchley's contract. Inflation in the NFL will make that number nothing by the time year 2 or 3 of the deal rolls around.

It's happened. Jimmy Garoppolo has been traded to the Chicago Bears. It was a no-brainer for me to trade Jimmy during this mock, it was just a matter of time. The Bears stepped up at the last second to secure their franchise quarterback.



Jonathan Bullard
In return we got Jonathan Bullard, who will play DE on the opposite side of Trey Flowers. He has enough bend and quickness to close up the pocket and pounce on whoever has the ball. He's an athletic 290 pounds, but needs to work on things. He has plenty of room for improvement after a rocky rookie season, but I like the potential and believe Bullard can put it all together for us next season.

I'd rate that an OK deal. Would want more of a return IRL if we're gonna trade Jimmy, otherwise keep him. I like Bullard but he was a 3rd rounder last year and didn't really do much. Would like the deal more if we didn't send them a 3rd rounder back.

He was keen on getting #64 back and I was having none of it Laughing I think it's an ok deal. Pretty much, the third for Bullard and Jimmy for 36. I think those are fair deals. We're not gonna run the tables on a team IRL much better I don't think. I moved up 60 spots into the end of the first round almost and acquired a young highly touted defensive prospect Cool
