There's a strategy to earning compensatory draft picks and the Saints choose not to take part. We simply don't value draft picks.

This again?

If you sign free-agents equal to the ones you lose... no picks.

We don't lose big free-agents, therefore no picks!!!

From 1994-2017, New Orleans has received the fewest compensatory picks of any team...

Ben Watson vs. Coby Fleener? Hmmm???

Contracts say no, but it is an interesting comparison...

I'd really like to see compensatory picks eliminated & the draft extended to ten rounds...

But that latter wish may hurt the Saints in UDRFA success...

Then again, it may force them to do a better job of draft management...

The teams that consistently get compensatory picks don't hold onto their vets too long and draft rather than go the free agency market. It's a smart strategy.......just not one that Loomis and Payton are too fond of.

Personally, I believe Godhell is still giving us the finger in this somehow.
