Default Re: Compensatory Picks????

I think you are right, Tony.

Compensatory picked are awarded for Free Agents - guys that have run to the end of their contract.

Quote:
Under terms of the NFL Collective Bargaining Agreement, a team losing more or better compensatory free agents than it acquires in a year is eligible to receive compensatory draft picks.

As you say, cutting someone for cap relief before the end of their contract doesn't entitle you to compensatory picks.

The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.
