  • Get any player

    Use the following trick to get any player in a trade without the other team rejecting. In the franchise mode, create a player as a quarterback and move his attributes until you get to 99 points. Then, put his injury and stamina down to 0. This will not change the attribute point level. Sign him as a free agent then trade him to any team for anybody you want. When you play the team he is playing for, after a couple of plays he will either become injured or will be taken out of the game for his weak stamina. No team will refuse your trade and you will have any player you want on your team.

  • Cheap players that are good

    To make a receiver go to create player and create the player as a quarterback. Give the player very low passing abilities (zero) and very high catching and ball handling levels. The player will cost very little because his quarterback skills are bad. You will have to sign him as a quarterback but use him as a wide receiver. His salary will never go up because he will not play as a quarterback. You can also change his number and attributes in the edit player screen. You can also make a dirt cheap fullback by eliminating his receiving skills.

  • Cheaper player

    When you have an expensive player, you can release him and sign him for less money.

  • Easier gold in mini-camp mode

    Create a player and trade him to the team that you are doing the drill with. Make sure that the created player is playing the position of the person that you are trying to complete the drill with. For example, Ronde Barber is the corner back in the Defensive Swat Pass drill. If you create a corner back and make his attributes all 99, put him on the Buccaneers and make him the starting or number one cornerback. Then, he will do the drill. You may do this with any person on any drill. You may also make the people who you are going against in the drill "sorrier". If you know their names, go to their attributes and turn them all the way down.

  • Over the shoulder catch

    When throwing the ball to a receiver that is running a fly route, lob the pass (tap the button) instead of throwing a bullet (holding the button). The receiver should catch the ball over his shoulder.

  • Better quarterback accuracy

    Note what kind of quarterback you are passing with. If you have someone such as Kurt Warner, you may have better accuracy if you set your feet, then throw the ball. If you have someone like Donovan McNabb, you might have better luck throwing on the run.

  • Better draft pick

    If you have a first place team and you know its going to be very late in the draft, trade with a last place team. Sometimes you can even get a first and second round pick for just your first. This is a very good way to get young players on your already good team.

  • Lower team's overall salary

    One way to lower a team's overall salary is to cut certain players' salaries. You can do this with players that have low attributes but high salaries. To do this, go to "Rosters" and select "Edit player". Select a player on the team that has a low overall rating (anything under the low 80s) and has a high salary. When you choose to edit the players "Attributes", you will notice that his salary decreases. Do not change anything in his attributes and exit out. You have now made your first budget cut of the season.
