Summarize your bug Teams are not re-signing their big name free agents. It is really noticeable after year two with players like Justin Herbert, Trevon Diggs, Nick Bosa, Justin Jefferson and many more becoming free agents. These players would never hit free agency in real life.
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Actually play franchise.
What happens when the bug occurs? It ruins the actual emersion of franchise because it immediately becomes unrealistic.
What do you expect to see? Teams re-signing their star players.

Hi everyone, 


We appreciate the reports on this. 


Could you please reply with the platform you're playing on along with your PSN ID, Xbox Gamertag, or EA ID so we can pass this along? 

Thanks!

Please fix this. Do you think it's safe to start a Franchise if I only play a few games at a time?  Or will it be like that one year where I had to completely start my franchise over to get over a game breaking bug?

@EA_Kent PSN ID is mikiross and I’ve currently set up a league to reproduce the issue (cloud franchise mikiross_5), after year 2 there are 16 players in FA with overall over 88, players like Nick Bosa, JJ and Derrick Henry

@descoyuntao EA doing what they do best. Franchise mode is unplayable until they fix this.

@DustinHough12 Clearly there’s too much talent in FA after year 2 and it’s not realistic. Probably the CPU is not handling well resigning players with the new motivations system
