There are three scenarios when a Taxi Squad activation could take place.
- A player is activated during the regular season. When this takes place, there is no cost.
- A player is activated during the offseason before the start of the league year (June 1). When this happens, there is also no cost. However, that player will be paid his full salary on June 1, so it’s always a better idea to activate after June 1.
- A player is activated during the offseason, after the start of the league year. When this happens, there is a league-minimum $1.00 fee. This is because this would be the equivalent of signing a league-minimum player via the Auction and then cutting him to promote the Taxi Squad player.
In all three scenarios, when a player is activated from the Taxi Squad, his salary still must not cause a team to exceed the $100 salary cap.
