Allow teams to make 52 player moves a year (26 add / drops). After the 52 players, each add / drop will cost the team a $2.00 fee per transaction. League will notify the team when 40 player moves (20 add / drops) has been reached.  Roster move fees must be paid after the regular season has ended and before the year end banquet to the treasurer. The 52 player moves averages to 3 add- drops per week, for the 17 week season. Moves to and from IR and Practice Squad will not count towards the player move total. Players added to replace IR and PS players will also not count towards the move total. Players waived when IR or PS are activated will also not count towards the total. Pickups to IR and PS will count as a move. (as of week 17 - Irish Rovers +50 = 100.00, Lynx  +2 = 4.00, Texans +4 = 8.00). Pre-week 1 moves will count toward the total moves.
