It is really easy to clean up another team’s roster just enough to get your trade to go through. One easy way to help yourself is to trade in the regular season if possible due to all roster shrink from a 75 man roster to a 53 man roster and that will clear up funds. Another thing to take into consideration is that every team has a “bad” high paying contract signed with a player that is not that hard to trade for. You can also do the SAR to clear up a team’s Cap room just enough to make the trade go through. Scroll through the team and look for an aging player that has a large-cap hit. Look out for positions that are easy to trade for like HB’s and Lineman.
