Contract keeper league. The cap is 50 years, so you have 50 years worth of contracts to sign. You sign a guy for 5 years, that would mean your cap drops to 45.
Once contract expires the guy goes back to the draft. Every other year each team gets a resign to use.
You also have a 20 roster farm team. You can bring guys up from the farm as IR replacement, but if you want them on the Big League team sans that IR spot, you have to give them a contract. So that's why you might not want to max out to 50 years going into each season. Also you have 12? buyout years each season. That's for waiver moves pretty much, if you want to cut a guy and sign someone else. Say you cut a guy on a 2 year deal and pick someone up to a one year deal. you would be down to 10 buyout years and your cap years would drop by one if you did a two for one there. Say you had 48 years (2) +1 =47.
