The League Settings/Rules thread says: "A player can only be kept for a maximum of 4 years, after which he returns to the player pool and is available to be drafted by anyone in the 5th year."
That means this coming season will be the first year that our keepers will "be kept", which means that they will not be able to be kept past 2016-2017. The first year a player is kept is the first year he is designated as a keeper by a manager. This means that 2013-2014 will be year 1 of the 4 year for any player designated as a keeper during this offseason.
The same will apply to any players who are added during the season. Anyone picked up last season outside of the draft and designated as a keeper this offseason will have 2013-2014 as year 1 of the 4 year rule.
