Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? 1. Franchise 32 teams 2. Autosign Free agent = on for years 17-18, 18-19, 19-20 3. Autosign free agent = off for year 20-21 4. Re-sign phase (bug occured in 2021 for me, every other year before that was OK, but I was on autosign free agent, so maybe this is actually the first year i was signing myself rookies) 5. Can't sign rookies (even if number of contracts is something like 25/50 and I have no RFAs qualified) 6. You can sign normal players as usual. You just cant give a first contract to rookies 7. All rookies reject their new contract saying the roster is full and there is no place in the team 8. I even tried releasing / buying out most of my team, but I still couldn't sign rookies
What happens when the bug occurs? Franchise is broken since you can't sign rookies. You can still play, but it's useless.
What do you expect to see? Normal ability to sign any player (veteran or rookie), restricted only by the salary cap and the number of contracts.
