You can get numerous easy tackles with your MLB by using him
during your kickoffs. Go to coaching strategies and find "Kickoff".
Assign the third player from the left to be your MLB. Assign the
first two players on the left as very slow CBs or FSs. When you
kick off, kick the ball to the left side where your MLB is assigned.
If you do not kick it too deeply, your MLB will be the first one
downfield and will go unblocked into the return man.
Note: If you have the roster space and some money, create a CB
and FS and make all of their attributes zeros. You should have
no trouble signing them to a contract. You can then use them
on your kickoff squad and they will almost never make it downfield.
With this trick, in addition to the tackles your MLB gets during the game,
he will get one for every kickoff as well.
Sign any player to low salary contract:
This trick will allow you to sign any player, no matter how big
their default salary is, to a three year low-salary contract.
You must do this before starting a franchise. First, edit the
player's attributes from whatever they are currently down so
that their overall rating is exactly 75. Depending on the position,
you should be able to achieve this by simply lowering one or sometimes
two of their attributes. Make sure to make a note what the original
rating was so you can store the value later. Once all players you are
editing are at an overall rating of 75, release the players to free
agency. After releasing each player (you may have to sign some "no-name"
players to your roster to maintain roster requirements, but you can
release those temporary players later), back out of the roster management
screen to the main menu. Choose the option to "Continue without saving"
(this may not be necessary). Reenter the roster management screen and
select "Free Agents." Go to whichever team you want to sign the players
to and start looking for your players. You should notice that their
new requested salaries and contract lengths will be for three years at
a very low salary (depending on the position). Once you have signed
all of your players back (and released the temporary players), go back
to editing the players and return them to the original ratings.
Note: According to the manual, your players will become upset if they
feel they are being underpaid for how good they are performing -- you
will more than likely have to re-sign some contracts throughout the year,
but with the cap room you will save.
