Both Jordan and Sanders were released by their former teams.

They would not fit into the compensation formula.

I may be ignorant on this, so feel free to enlighten me.

I thought FA's a team signed could decrease the compensation they receive for FA's they lose.

Could is correct. An FA that doesn't count as a "qualifying free agent loss" for the team that loses him doesn't count as a "qualifying free agent gain" for the team that signs him.

For example, Deltha O'Neal was released, so he doesn't help the Bengals and doesn't hurt the Pats. Similarly, Colvin was signed too late in the year to count against the Pats, regardless of how he became a FA.

No, but a 1st and a 2nd is near the high end, and that's the value I was proposing, and "near" is the word I previously used.

Ok, although that sort of argument undercuts your assertion about third rounders....

To me, it's just a mental exercise, because I'm not even trying to guess what the team is going to get back for Cassel. It's such a unique situation that I'm guessing even the GMs involved (other than, maybe Pioli & BB) are stil not sure of the guy's worth.

I might have a better idea as to what you meant if I recalled making any assertions about third rounders other than pointing out their value was much less than that of 2nd or 1st rounders.
