    Do we get any for losing sanders, merriweather, or Tate?

    I thought they are given out only if players leave through free agency. All the above were waived :confused:

    We don't get picks for any of them because they were cut.

    No, no and no. Comp picks are awarded based on a (reportedly) complicated formula using free agents lost and free agents signed during the previous offseason.

    You get nothing for cutting/waiving a player.

    Page would count, since he left as an unrestricted free agent (remember the new CBA made him a UFA instead of an RFA).

    Not sure how many of the Patriots' signings count against them, though.
