...it suddenly occurred to me as the FA period has come to a screeching halt for the moment, that Miami JUST might have screwed themselves by trading Welker. Here's my thought. Under the trade Miami gets our 2nd (60) and 7th (4th from the bottom, whatever that is). IF they had gone with the normal RFA format and NOT signed the offer sheet, the Fins would have received our second (60), PLUS a comp pick in next year's draft. THAT pick, depending on how Welker played COULD have been as high as a 4th or 5th. At worst they would wind up with a 7th 4 picks lower than what we gave them. Granted there is some risk involved, but based on last years figure I think they would have gotten at least a 5th. SO WE WIN BTW does this thought have any merit?
