**Supplemental Draft this Offseason**

We'll have an extra five round draft before the season starts, with teams able to draft any positions of their choosing. Draft order will begin with #32. The draft will start August 15th, so that teams will have some time to evaluate how training camp battles are proceeding and take into account any injuries that have occurred to their players. This should also give us enough time to conclude the draft before the season starts.

**Annual Offseason Cuts and Draft**

Every offseason starting in 2014, sometime around June 1, each team will drop four players of their choosing from their roster. Each team will also choose X players

**(POLL #1)**to protect from the draft.

We will then have an offseason draft during the summer with the draft pool consisting of all unprotected rostered players, all new NFL draftees and UDFAs, and all non-rostered players. During this draft, each team can lose a maximum of Y

**(POLL #2)**unprotected rostered players in the draft. After Y of your players are selected, the rest of your unprotected rostered players are off-limits and no longer part of the draft pool.

Each team will therefore lose a total of 4+Y players in the offseason. Given that we want to expand roster sizes at a gradual rate, the number of draft rounds each year will be equal to that number (4+Y) plus 5, until we reach 53 man rosters (if this thing keeps going).

There has also been a proposal to limit the number of years that any player can be protected to five and I just want to put this to a straight vote

**(POLL #3)**.

**Simulations**

The mechanics of this are still TBD but we are going to try to do both Madden and a series of league votes. I think we can figure this out later.
