Avoid The Cap:
The salary cap is pretty easy to manipulate. If you don't like a player for whatever reason, than re-negotiate his contract so that he doesn't get a signing bonus. Than work out a trade with another team and you won't take a hit against the salary cap for trading him.
Cheap but Strong Players:
If you create a player in franchise mode, make his attributes really low and then sign him for 7 years very cheap. As soon as you do, go back into create a player mode, and change all of your player's attributes to 99. His wage won't increase until his contract is up, but he will kick ass on the field.
Players Become Coaches:
Great players that retire in franchise mode can return to be coaches. Wait a couple years after you favorite star retires, and he will show up in the coaching free agent list to be signed as an assisant coach or an head coach.
Trade for Any Player:
In Franchise Mode, Create a player (or 3, or 20) and set all of his attributes low so that his overall rating is 12. Sign him as a free agent for cheap then return to Create-A-Player and max out his stats. You can now trade this player to any team for the very best players in the NFL.
