Can someone explain compensatory picks for me

The Essential Online Seattle Football Fan Forum Community. There simply is NO substitute. LANGUAGE RATING: PG-13
  • My very high level knowledge, if you lose a FA that the league grades as high level by some math you may get a pick anywhere from 3rd-7th round?

    But is it a player for player. Say we lose graham we get a 4 and we lose richardson we get a 4. Or is it we lose graham and richardson so we get a 3.

    Do we lose picks if we sign players?

    Im so confused.

    I don't know it inside out but -

    It is based heavily on snap counts and I believe APY contracts.

    The NFL looks at what players you've lost and which you've gained via free agency and determines which pick(s) you get.

  • Another quirk is if you sign a player that was cut, not UFA it won't count against you either.

    Watch for this. JS loves to take advantage of this rule.

  • There is a formula somewhere inside the NFL that OTC has somewhat guessed. BUt basically, there are 32 comp picks awarded each year. They are awarded to the 32 most expensive FA lost. However they can be offset by signing other team's FA. So for instance, if Richardson were to sign elsewhere for $14m per year and that was the biggest FA contract given out, we would get the 33rd pick in the 3rd round. However, if we were to then go out and sign a FA of our own, say an OL to a nice $10m contract, it would cancel out the Richardson comp pick and the comp pick would move on to the next team with the biggest FA contract. It is much more convoluted than that though. If you sign FA that other teams cut, it doesn't count for or against you.

    Good explanation... and there's an end date after which FAs may be signed and the compensatory picks are not affected. Can't find the exact date but it's usually near the start of training camp.

  • You take the players age, add it to to the square root of potato, divide it by zero and multiply it by the number of Superbowls won by the Red Sox.
