Final Madden NFL 21 Roster Update Includes Futures Signings

The final Madden NFL 21 roster update of the season has arrived and it includes futures signings for each squad as well.

For those of you looking for Matthew Stafford on the Rams and Jared Goff on the Lions, you need to wait until Madden NFL 22, since the trade won’t be official until March 17. Also of note, all of the players that opted out for the NFL season, due to COVID concerns, will still have their injury designation. This will not change for Madden NFL 21.

I’ve poked around the updated roster and see quite a few of the futures signings on their respective team, just going off of the list at NFLTR. I’m not entirely sure how accurate they are, but I used it as a guide. The XFL put together a list of their players who signed futures contracts as well.

If you’re not familiar with NFL futures contracts, BTSC can get you up to speed.

Unlike a normal player contract, which takes effect the moment they are signed, futures contracts take effect on the first day of the new league year. This coincides with the day teams can expand their rosters to a new, 90-player max — the limit from day one of the league year until the first round of cuts during training camp.

With that out of the way, the final Madden NFL 21 roster update also features a few more player rating adjustments, based off of Super Bowl LV performances. I’m not even going to bother looking at anyone under an overall 80 rating, there were not many updates.

GOING UP

  • Lavonte David +1 (Overall 91)
  • Tristan Wirfs +1 (Overall 89)
  • Devin White +2 (Overall 84)
  • Antoine Winfield Jr. +1 (Overall 83)

    Any idea why some players who did not opt out are still injured? Kinda cool they added futures signings, since they are technically 2021 signings.

    Give me some examples and I can try to find out (no promises).

    there are some teams u cant use without making a new coach cuz they didnt update coach hirings*

    Like the Lions.. I still have to see Fatricia on the sidelines until I fire him

    Bud dupree, kwon alexander, and eric fisher. There might be more im not sure

    From what I've been told, if a player has a major injury that will most likely carry into the next year, they will stay injured.

    Is this the first year that they ever done something like this?

    Ok, thanks. Kind of dumb imo, since these are players that played most of the season, while ones that missed the whole season or most ofnot injured now. Not really that big of a deal i just thought it was strange.

    It's been this way for a while.

    they did not do this in madden 18 19 or 20 and they added WR Alex Bachman to the free agent list
    my only minor complaint is guys like RB Mark ingram III was cut in mid-jan but still with bait in game
