"The New England Patriots are the big winner for losing free agents last year.

The Patriots have been awarded the maximum of four compensatory picks in April's NFL draft. The selections will come in the sixth round (one, No. 205 overall) and seventh round (three, Nos. 247, 248 and 250).
In all, 32 such picks were given out Monday, with 19 teams getting at least one.

Carolina, Pittsburgh and Tennessee each get three, while Atlanta, Cincinnati, Indianapolis and Philadelphia receive two.

Getting one compensatory choice will be Green Bay, Detroit, Jacksonville, Miami, Minnesota, Oakland, St. Louis, San Diego, Seattle, Tampa Bay and San Francisco.

It is amazing how the most successful teams in the draft and on the field are getting the most compensatory picks.
I am glad we changed course and are no longer the best at signing overpriced FA's and bullshitting the cap. It is about time we learned from the successful teams and followed their lead. It took Danny 10 years to figure it out. Better late than never.

The best teams tend to focus on the draft and they know when to let their guys walk when they are looking for the big pay day.

Or their most productive days are behind them. Older players tend to be more injury prone and miss more time. In general.

Now all he has to learn is to sit in the owners office and stop pestering people who are actually helping the team. Enough with the photos of him sitting right between Shanny & Allen at the combine.

The Bengals did the best with a 3rd and 4th rounder ,and the Patriots got more ammo to be able to move around like always. Well maybe the Skin will get a pick next year ,lol .

Yeah, I did not notice that. A 3rd and a 4th in this deep draft is huge. Teams drafting behind them are bitching. Dan is cursing Vinny's photo.

I might be wrong, but I think you only get compensatory picks if another team signs your FA.?.? Releasing them does not count.?.? I think.

The picks are awarded based on free agents that you lose, not guys that you cut.

Well the Bengals could use the extra picks anyway.

thats a very good point. if you let a player walk who is going to get alot more money somewhere else than he's worth to your team, you're going to get a 3rd-4th round compensatory pick for him. its not alot, but its better than nothing. for carolina, i certainly think that the 3rd round compensatory pick is probably worth more to the carolina panthers than keeping peppers and giving him tens of millions of dollars would have been.

FYI, cannot trade a Compensatory pick.

Though it may make them slightly more willing to part with other picks for the sake of trading up.
