7 - Contract Keeper Leagues

   These leagues will keep a certain amount of players using contracts. The contracts will vary on there length and duration. Players will be returned to the free agent pool after there contract is over. Players can be resigned though if a team has earned an anchor. Anchors just allow teams to resign players without dropping them. This is one of KFLs more desirable and fun leagues to play in from team owner responses.

   As an example. These are the types of contracts that KFL uses for there keeper contract leagues. 2 - Three year contracts, 3 - Two year contracts, 3 - One year contracts and 2 - Three year rookie contracts ( 2 rookie contracts are added each year).
