NLL Free Agency

Posted: June 21, 2017 in Uncategorized

Beginning July 1, trades and roster transactions are permitted among teams. The NLL free agency period will then open on August 1, allowing teams to contact, speak and sign Rostered Restricted Free Agents (RFAs) and Rostered Unrestricted Free Agents (UFAs), per the League’s listing of identified players, for the 2018 season and beyond.


Should a restricted free agent sign an offer sheet with another club, the team with rights to the RFA will have 72 hours to match the offer. As per the terms of the league’s Collective Bargaining Agreement, if a team loses an unrestricted free agent to another club, they may be eligible to receive compensatory draft pick(s) for the following season(s).

*If a potential RFA’s team does not qualify the player prior to August 1, then he is an eligible RFA. If he is qualified by his team, then he is removed from the RFA market.
