Various Cheats and Hints
Unlock Madden Cards in Mini-Camp
Get Gold in Mini-Camp challenges to unlock Madden Cards. Cards directly relate to the challenges you complete. For instance, getting a Gold in the Ground Attack challenge will yield a Priest Holmes Card. Be sure to get Golds on all of the difficulty levels to collect all of the cards!
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.
Earn Madden Cards With EA Bio

Level 2: #204 Bingo! Cheat
Level 4: #246 1990 Eagles Classic Team
Level 6: #186 Steve Spurrier Coach
Play Football 101 to Earn Easy Tokens

Unlock Cheerleader/Pump Up Crowd Madden Cards
To unlock the Cheerleader/Pump Up Crowd Madden Cards, beat the Game Situation in Mini-Camp. The team who you complete the challenge with is the Cheerleader/Pump Up Card you will unlock.
Go to Mini Camp mode. Do the LB Chase And Tackle. First do it under the rookie difficulty setting, and when you are skilled enough, advance to the pro setting. Get a gold trophy in the mini camp drill. Do not waste your time in the game situation. You will receive a Silver Fumbilitis. Use the card during a game. This card increases your chances of getting a fumble by 50%.
In owner mode off season, you will have the opportunity to create a new stadium twice. One is when you can go to stadium mode and you can chose rebuild, or relocate. In both areas you will have a chance to create a new stadium. Most of the time if you create a bad stadium, you will have your proposal denied because you do not have enough money. Get about $300 million then create a stadium that has one section at least of press, and one section of press and luxury. The rest can be finished off as desired. Then, on the "Secure Funds" section, make it so that the team provides the most money possible, making it so that the board has more approval for the stadium. Note: If you relocate to a city that has a high desire for a sports team such as Los Angeles or Boston, their approval will be higher.
Easy money in owner mode:
While playing your franchise in owner mode, wait until you play any home game. While playing, go to menu options and save your game. Immediately quit the game and completely exit out of franchise mode. Reload your franchise game, and repeat as many times as necessary. The trick works off your ticket sales for that game. For example, if you normally make $5 million a game, multiply that by the number of times you saved/quit/reloaded. If you do it ten times, then you will make $50 million in ticket sales for that game. Note: If you save and do not quit, most likely your game will crash after a few plays.
