Re-signing players for less in Franchise mode
When re-signing players, go to your "Player Management" screen first and change the player that you want to re-sign to another position, such as a kicker or punter (the worst overall possible). Go back to re-sign that player for much less. Note: You cannot save the change unless you have enough players at that position after you change the player's position. For example, to change a cornerback to a kicker you must have four other cornerbacks remaining.
