Based on a large number of requests for the rookie pools to be updated I took a break from the contracts and modified the rookie cap numbers to reflect trades and compensatory selections. If you see any errors please let me know and Ill change the team in the database.
As a rough guide remember when calculating the amount of cap room that you will need for each team to subtract approximately $405,000 times the number of draft picks your team has from each teams rookie pool number. Next year Ill have that done automatically but I dont think I have the time to do that this season.
