Re: No comp picks

I think it wasn't brought up because it's completely expected. The title to your post could have just as well been "no surprise" and I think we'd all know what it was about already. The Browns are the only team to have been given less comp picks than us, sad..

Re: No comp picks

Saints haven't mastered the Patriots way yet . Until then, expect no comp picks!

Re: No comp picks

comp picks are not arbitrary- there is a formula
our problem is twofold: we cut our high-priced guys, which negates compensation, and we always sign high end players, Byrd, Browner, etc, that cancel out our actual lost players (which we rarely have)

We should probably get some next year, because it appears we're gonna lose more free-agents than we sign.

True: Bush + Robinson + Watson > Fleener

and no, sports fans, we don't get anything if Evans, Hawthorne, Browner, or Colston sign elsewhere

Re: No comp picks

First time I can recall Baltimore wasn't awarded the most quantity and value in compensatory picks...

Personally, I wish they'd do away with them entirely and just go to a ten round draft...
