does anyone know for sure the rules regarding comp picks? im pretty certain that the steelers will not get one for cutting porter loose. from what i understand comp picks are restricted to free agents alone which meant the titans wont get one for releasing henry, the giants or steelers wont get one for hartings or tiki retiring, and the broncos wont get one for d. williams being murdered (they will receive league sanctionned cap relief for his contract though).
since comp picks were part of the deal given to teams in exchange for giving players the right to free agency in 93 in the bartering process, it would seem to reward teams to cut players and receive compensation, rather than having to live up to their end of a signed contract.
does anyone know for sure?
