They could be useful to a team for a season, so it would be nice if an amendment could be made to the UFA rules that any player over the age of 35 is allowed to be given a 1 year contract no matter what their overall is. Because irl no one is going to give a 37 year old player a multi year contract, most of the time it will be one year
I had been thinking about something to do with players who haven't signed by the start of the season. If you're willing to sign a player to the appropriate multi-year deal, then you get him. But if literally nobody wants to sign the player, then maybe lift the restrictions when the first block of the season hits? For the record, I have no problem with how things are, just throwing out an idea that crossed my mind before.
