Houston and Baltimore make out good.
NFL announces 32 compensatory draft picks to 16 teams
this is due to FA's lost last offseason or just like the last couple of weeks, thereby this round of FA?
and if its last offseason, who did houston and baltimore lose to warrant such a nice selection of picks?
Last offseason. I'm scratching my head as well for the Ravens they seemed to have returned the same team this year.
Maybe its the NFL giving them an advanced because they'll be getting lots of compensatory picks next year.
BALTIMORE Lost: Ben Grubbs, Jarret Johnson, Brandon McKinney, Haruki Nakamura, Cory Redding, Tom Zbikowski. Signed: Sean Considine, Corey Graham.
Ah forgot about those guys. Probably because they didn't do much on their new teams. They are good like us at letting some guys walk.
Houston also lost Mario Williams, DeMeco Ryans, Eric Winston, and im sure a few other notable names.
Baltimore is likely to do even better next year with all their players getting signed away and their total inactivity in free agency.
you could have mentioned 'we got squat' so I didnt have to click the link.
signed, ungrateful Patsfan.
So this makes our 202 pick around 219.
I was under the impression that production on new
Team was a factor in the comp pick selection process
Well, we probably will get a 4-5 for Wes and who knows about Seabass. maybe we get a couple next year unless we keep on this free agent spree.
Back me up on this Miguel, doesn't Adamjt13 usually get like 24-26 right out of 32 with round and position correct every year?
...for the annual dialogue on "how does this work" and "what will we get for Welker" google Adamtj13. He "broke the code."
A summary, from memory:
Depends on net loss of Unrestricted Free Agents. That is, you lose more than you gain. If you lose Tom Brady, and gain two back-up safeties, you are not getting a compensatory pick.
Players cut, waived, released, whatever do not count, either for or against.
If the player you signed or lost doesn't make the roster, generally that doesn't count.
Only pick-ups during the free agency period count. Players that sit around a while and get picked up during training camp do not count.
The primary algorithm is based on average annual salary. Contributing to that is number of starts and other performance-based metrics.
There are always 32 selections. It's essentially an 8th round to the draft. When the allocation of players to teams with a net loss of players is complete, but not 32 picks, the NFL allots picks based on a more nebulous 'net loss of players' for teams that had an even balance, but lost better players (higher paid) than they gained. Then it just goes to draft order.
OK. So how did they do the math on this one:
SAN FRANCISCO Lost: Blake Costanzo, Joshua Morgan, Madieu Williams. Signed: Mario Manningham.
Lost three--and signed a decent WR in return. They get three comp picks, including a 4th rounder. Huh?
You are a true Patsfans veteran Urgent. Very cohesive explanation.
