I was reading Maiocco's chat from yesterday and someone asked him about how many comp picks we'd get next year. He said none because we lost Goldson, Jean-Francois, Sopoaga, and Walker but signed Dorsey, Dahl, Dawson and Skuta. This doesn't seem right to me. Can someone explain how they figure this stuff out? I thought it was based on contracts and playing time, and if that's the case I would think we'd get something, at least a 4th for Goldson right?
Damn, I would be pissed if they cancelled out. I was hoping for at least a fourth, more than likely a 3rd from Goldson.
I think the comp picks are decided at the owners meeting and is based on pay and performance. If that is the case I doubt our signings would cancel out the players that we lost, unless someone has a career year
I believe Maiocco is correct:
4 FA signed/ 4 FA lost= cancels out.
However, if we lose a better 4 FA, than the 4 we signed, we are awarded a 7th round pick.
But as previously mentioned, We're slated to lose more FA before all is said and done. Ginn,etc.
Damn that would be annoying. Especially as Goldson is a much higher calibre FA than any we brought in (no offence to them). Let's hope Ginn can give us a leaving gift of a high compensatory pick (not him directly, but hopefully he cancels out whoever would cancel out Goldson)
