    Actually I thought that we might get a 7th, maybe the last pick in the draft.

    But it's now official so a little drama never hurts.:D

    What's BB going to do with a non-tradeable pick anyways?

    CT - While you have been "saying this for awhile", it doesn't mean the Pats weren't hosed.

    Ben Watson was signed for $4 million a year. Look at Watson's production in Cleveland.

    68 Receptions - 763 Yards, 3 TDs.

    Alge Crumpler was signed for under $2 million a year. Compare that to Crumpler's production:

    6 Receptions - 52 Yards- 2 TDs

    How anyone can say that the two were comparable and off-setting is just lunacy.

    Goodell is still commissioner right?

    Yes?

    Oh...well then I'm not surprised.

    I never said it was fair. All I've been saying is that the way the formula has historical been applied, the best they could hope for was a late comp 7.

    Weren't they near the top for comp picks last year? Were you bashing Goodell then for giving the Patriots too many? The hypocrisy of some fans is amazing.

    you can't compare stats and contract money between a FA you lose and one you sign, because for comp picks you only get comp picks when you lose more FAs than you sign

    Largely, but not entirely, correct.

    Only certain UFAs count in the calculations. The short version is:

    * The player must not have been waived by his old team.
    * The player must sign a contract with his new team before a certain deadline, and must remain on the team for a certain length of time.
    * The player must sign a contract worth at least slightly more than the vet minimum.

    No team that has signed more qualifying FAs than it lost has ever gotten a comp pick.

    When teams lose more than they sign, they try to "cancel out" contracts as best they can (i.e., a player with a $1M contract will cancel out a $2M contract instead of a $6M contract). [The primary determinant of what round a pick is slotted in is the average annual value of the contract.]

    If a team loses as many as it signs, it may get a late comp 7 if the players lost are significantly better than the players signed.

    I bash Goodell at every opportunity. Nice try at the sanctimonious thing, though.

    I don't get why you guys love him so much. He's the worst commish the NFL has ever had. Keep your head in the sand if you wish.

    When did we ever say we loved him? Mindlessly bashing anything or anyone is simply stupid.

    Nikolai:

    There are certainly lots of reasons to bash Goodell, but there is no grand conspiracy here. If you want to blame anyone, blame Jarvis Green and/or the Donkeys for his not making the opening day roster there.

    This is the flip side of the same set of rules that got the Patriots a comp 4 for Donte Stallworth even though they let him walk after just one year.

    BB's indifference to the value of non-tradeable picks continues to puzzle me. :cool:

    There is no hypocrisy. The Pats legitimately lost the players last year.

    It's amazing the kind of garbage people who know nothing on the topic throw out just to have themselves heard.

    That's false. Buffalo has received comp picks in the past for losing the same amount that they signed, but there was a difference in the level of players.
