    JULY 17TH

    "Pats, Ravens look to win comp pick sweepstakes… The window of opportunity for NFL teams to sign unrestricted veteran free agents closed over the weekend. And while league accountants still have to figure out all the final specifics, it appears that both New England and Baltimore are likely to get the maximum number of compensatory picks for the 2007 draft. Indeed, both the Patriots and Ravens lost a total of 6 more unrestricted free agents than they were able to sign themselves. Baltimore, for example, had 9 veteran free agents sign with other teams this winter including RB Chester Taylor, DT Ma’ake Kemoeatu, DE Anthony Weaver and FS Will Demps, while signing three. Meanwhile, the Patriots lost 8 veteran free agents, including WRs David Givens and Andre Davis, as well as star PK Adam Vinateiri. San Diego, Indianapolis and Oakland are also almost certainly going to each receive a healthy package of comp picks next spring. San Diego lost 4 more free agents than they signed, while both Indianapolis and Oakland were a minus 3. As well, all three teams also lost high priced free agents which will impact their ultimate comp pick award. San Diego, for example, lost QB Drew Brees who signed with New Orleans, while star Colts RB Edge James signed with Arizona and Oakland CB Charles Woodson inked with Green Bay. Other teams which should be in line to get something in terms of comp picks this year include Atlanta, Kansas City, Minnesota, and possibly Pittsburgh. On the other hand, teams which will definitely NOT be getting comp picks this year include Buffalo, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Miami, Washington and the Jets. For the record, here is the full list of free agent signings by team. The allotment of compensatory draft picks is determined by a complicated formula which factors in the net loss of veteran free agents for each team, as well as the value of the contracts signed. Comp picks are usually announced about a month before the actual draft."

    Thought we'd do well.
    But thanks for the wealth of comparative data.

    Good post. Very encouraging, and exciting! That's the one thing that gets overlooked alot listening to the constant, "they shouldn't have lett Willie go", "they should have let Givens go". That is, they get draft picks in return that will yield some young talent. Thanks for the info.

    Yeah, we don't get anything for him but Vinatraitor, Givens and Ashworth all signed pretty good contracts that are eligible for comp picks.

    Personally, I'm thinking something along the lines of a 4th, two 5ths, and a 6th.
