    What is the Purpose of Compensatory Picks

    I don't understand the underlying logic or reason for compensatory picks. A team knowingly signs a player to a contract of a certain duration. Once that contract has expired, the player is a free agent and can sign with another team. The original team then gets a compensatory pick. Seems...

    Patriots Tendered Blount

    Patriots made May 9 tender offer to LeGarrette Blount First, the team acquires exclusive negotiating rights with the player, if he doesn’t sign elsewhere before July 22. From July 22 through the Tuesday after Week 10 of the regular season, the player can sign only with his prior team. Second...

    Early 2018 compensatory pick projections - 4th and 5th rounders

    Patriots in position to receive multiple compensatory draft picks in 2018 I found it amazing that Logan Ryan would be worth a 3rd-round comp pick. It gets cancelled out with the Gilmore signing, but hard to believe he rose that high when you look at a few years ago and people were screaming...

    A chance for a win-win with EXTENDING BENNETT now ?

    with extension period possibly coming i was thinking - why not extend Bennett in a win -win deal? am I missing something or would extension like 6 +20 benefit both parties? Bennett receives another million and Pats get probably 3rd compensatory pick. if this works one million seems to be a...

    Veteran free agent signings become much more likely Thursday May 12

    May 12 is the first date on which free-agent signings don’t count toward the determination of compensatory draft picks. Bill loves his compensatory draft picks, for good reason. Released players can be signed any time with no pick compensation, but players who simply played out their last...

    Rationale behind compensatory draft picks?

    I cannot understand the rationale behind these picks. I understand this goes way back in the NFL, and I'm glad the Patriots usually stock up on them, but why? It diminishes the purpose of looking to trade a player to get something back in return and offers a reward for failing to re-sign a...
