Re: Compensatory picks awarded - None for Saints

So wait. The NFL just give away comp picks even if they aren't earned in a trade? Why have I never heard of this? And where's our piece of the pie?

I think the Saints should be fined a draft pick for not using the system in place.

Yup. There's death, taxes and the Saints not getting a compensatory pick.

Take my first round draft pick in the Saints mock draft as punishment.

Likely none next year either.

We only lost Jenkins, Herring, Johnson and Collins,

We gained Byrd and Lorig.

So basically the difference is Herring and Johnson, both back-ups.

Maybe they throw us a couple 7th's?

Maybe Brown and DLP sign somewhere and we'd get a couple 3rd's?

Re: Compensatory picks awarded - None for Saints

It's more scientific than you guys are saying. We don't get 'screwed' every year, we just sign the same number that get signed away.

here is an in depth look if you are really bored:

1. Lost players that are cut or not tendered as RFAs and ERFAs do not qualify.

2. Lost players that were picked up during the season the year before do not qualify.

3. Signed players that are released before midseason do not qualify.

4. Players earning low minimum salaries do not qualify.

5. Each player signed cancels out one player lost.

6. The round of the pick awarded is primarily determined by the annual value of the contract signed. Signed players cancel out lost players with equal contracts, then lower contracts, before canceling out higher contracts.

Well except for Joique Bell, Ricky Williams, Reggie Bush, Chris Ivory, Vontae Leach, Rob Ninkovich, Al Wood, David Thomas, Tebuckey Jones, Victor Riley, Olin Kreutz, Anthony Simmons, Shaun Rogers, Aubrayo Franklin, Kevin Kaesvinhorn, Jo-Lonn Dunbar, Jonathan Casillas, Jason David, Bryan Young, David Sloan, Dan Morgan, and every stinkin player that ever left the Saints for another team prior to 2006.

There was actually a segment in the Sunday Times Picayune called "Ex-Saint of the Week".

How many of you guys remember that?
