Compensatory picks awarded - None for Saints

Re: Compensatory picks awarded - None for Saints

I agree...the system needs work...I feel that there should be a legitimate attempt by the team to retain their top free agents. If another team beats that offer and the player chooses to sign elsewhere then a compensatory pick should be awarded. If you are in cap hell and can't make it work to offer a contract then oh well....the way it is currently structured is BS...and any player acquired should count except for trades...I don't care if the player was cut or signed as a free agent it should still count...this is just some BS system that allows the league to manipulate the team that Goodell likes...Its called Free Agency for a reason...they made the decision to let them walk....since they are so good at 'developing talent' then give them 6th and 7th round picks...those player weren't taken from them...they let them walk....

Sorry....Im done with my rant...lol

My issue is the compensation that Baltimore got over some of the other teams...

Cut players don't factor either; what I disagree with is the NFL doesn't factor players signed that were cut by other teams - that's bullshinski...

If they're cut, then they're a free agent; and Baltimore signed free agents to replace their "losses"...

Looking at the total numbers of comp picks, it doesn't seem fair.

For example,
The Ravens have had 35 more draft picks than the Browns over the last 20 years. They're in the same division and Baltimore has had much more success over that time span than Cleveland. That seems to me like too much of an advantage when the Browns haven't done anything wrong.

Re: Compensatory picks awarded - None for Saints

The Browns have not done anything right either.

I think teams should only get a maximum of one or two picks personally. The Ravens refuse to pay FA knowing they get multiple extra picks.
If you are getting say two 5th round comp picks you can trade your original 5th rounder for a better pick the next year so you benefit more from comp picks.

I think its a poor process. Two of our FA that stopped us getting a puck never played so why should that be held against the team.

That is because fair has nothing to do with it, how many players have walked from the Browns in the last years that would count as value using the Compensatory picks formula.

"Compensatory free agents are determined by a formula based on salary, playing time and postseason honors. The
formula was developed by the NFL Management Council. Not
every free agent lost or signed by a club is covered by this
formula. "


Baltimore having had more success is evidence that Baltimore has been letting better players go.

Re: Compensatory picks awarded - None for Saints

As far as for the Saints compensatory picks... Which free agents have we let go that went to a new team and received a high salary, played the full season, and had post season honors, in comparison to how many we have taken on?

We generally get better than we give up. It is all about loss of value, and not so much a 1-1 free agent swap.

Re: Compensatory picks awarded - None for Saints

I also feel we get shafted with this process.

Perhaps just shows we make out by upgrading positions / players when we lose some FA. I think the whole process should be scrapped. I mean if you lose a player its your fault, deal with it.

I also feel its better to just lose a player without trade because your comp pick will be higher that the trade.

Compensatory compensatory. I like saying that word. Never really understand the explanation of how the NFL uses it at random (it seems).

Re: Compensatory picks awarded - None for Saints

Well since its all based on the previous year then next year we should get like 4 or 5 right??
We lost Smith, Vilma, Harper, Jenkins, & Moore just to name a few. We also did not receive anything from them.
