I am assuming that a sign and trade by definition is trading someone the same offseason that you signed them, no matter the length of contract they are signed to.

Very close. Seeing as someone could theoretically do a backdoor deal that would come my way as soon as the regular season is to begin, it makes more sense to not allow teams to trade a player signed during the season they were signed (RFA phase 1 players exempted).

Unrestricted Free Agents (AKA Signing Your Remaining Free Agents)

Any player of yours whose contract expired and was not part of the previous event will be included here. This is an extremely straightforward event. You either sign or you do not sign players, Those you do stay on your team, those who don't enter the free agent pool.

When you receive the PM with your slash lines, remember that those are not the deals you have to sign them to. With a few exceptions that I will lay out, you can sign anyone (pending the age/max length rule) to deals 1-7 years in length. If you wish to give a player a custom offer, I might be available to do live signings the new few days. Otherwise, we can bounce PMs off of each other for a while (remember that there is a deadline though and delay in response could be a day or longer). If you wish to offer someone a deal of a different length but do no want to bother with the financials, you can merely say you want to give X player the default deal for Y years.

There are only two wrinkles for this event. One is that a few players might hold out for better deals. I can confirm that two users have a holdout. What happens is that I will isolate them in the PM and tell you their base deal. If you elect not to sign them, they will stay on your team without playing a down for you until you trade them, release them, or give into their contract demands. Keep in mind that any guaranteed money still left on their contract (annual bonus) is transferred over to the new contract.

The second wrinkle is that some players hate your team to where they will only sign via the franchise tag, which is a one year deal that pays them the average of the Top 5 salaries at their position or 120% of what they made last season, whichever is higher. I will isolate those players and also tell you how much money that comes out to as of this moment. The franchise tag has rarely been used, so while I am not expecting anyone will use it, you never know.

Wait so I have approximately 1/3rd of my roster set for free agency next year. Am I to believe that should I sign all of my free agents next year that 1/3rd of my roster will be off limits in trade discussions next year? Because unless I'm reading this wrong, that's what this sounds like to me.

Players you sign during a season cannot be traded that same season with the exception of RFAs you gave tenders to that went unsigned in Phase 2.

If the off-limits period was just the offseason, there's nothing stopping people from waiting until the preseason ends to execute trades that would have been considered sign-and-trades under Emerald's idea of the concept.

While someone could sign a player to a multiyear deal with the intention to trade them the following season, I'm placing my faith that our userbase isn't that pathetic.

So I'm currently shopping a player from my team to other teams. If this were happening next year during the season I'd basically have to begin every negotiation with "who were your FAs that you signed this year" so that I know they are off limits because I'm definitely not going to pay attention to other team's free agents and they would fall under this new rule. Is that correct?

Since all trades have to go through me, you could always just ask me first as that info can easily be accessed through the game.

I tried to keep my eyes open as long as I could, but I don't think that I can any longer. Sorry to the half-dozen or so that will have to wait on receiving their PMs, but I will make sure to get to it shortly after getting up.
