Actually compensation was awarded in the form of a first and third round pick as compensation for the restricted free agent...

You say that with stern conviction as if it actually happened. It was a 1st and a 3rd, there was no Franchise Tag involved, not was there 12m dollars a year involved.

But your point is well made Schmohams, Martin was a Restricted Free Agent and a was a prized Free Agent...

Teams WILL spend picks for a player that is a triple impact threat - Wins, Gate, Television...

Graham going to a team like Miami would be huge for them- College Hometown Hero Returns to Resurrect Storied Franchise...

And we've got a good trade history with them as well; more recently, Ricky Williams, Reggie Bush...

Business season primer: Focus on benchmark deals, Graham situation - CBSSports.com

Benchmark deals

Deals consummated right before the start of free agency can have a major impact on free agents...

...The deal center Jason Kelce got from the Eagles (6 years, $37.5 million with $13M guaranteed) represents the opening bid for Browns center Alex Mack, if he's set free, and it should effect Evan Dietrich-Smith as well as Brian DeLaPuente.

Re: Free agents 2014

Grimes signed 4 year deal with Dolphins. 32 mil. I guess Verner becomes 10mil a year man.

Re: Free agents 2014

Browns use transition tag on center Alex Mack. 10 mil.
The franchise tag would have cost $11.6 million. No compensation if he leaves. I think he stays with Browns.
