    I think you have to lose more free agents than gain to get eligable.

    I guess that's what happens when you sign a QB in FA. Oh well not a big deal

    Gunny you are right.

    The rest of you are clueless.

    If you sign more Free agents than you lose then you do not get a compensatory pick.

    Signing big names has absolutely nothing to do with it.

    Salary, playing time, performance are all factors.

    Babin would have gotten a 4-5th rounder if we signed less true FAs than we lost. We signed 5 lost 2 IIRC.

    Why don't we all stop calling each other clueless and acknowledge that none of us knows how the compensatory system works because the league keeps the formula a secret? The best anyone can do is guess.

    Because you are wrong and clueless.

    There is a guy who predicts this stuff very accurately every year(how many picks awarded, what rounds, and to who) and who is not an nfl employee.

    Salary, playing time, and performance are what the formula is based on straight from the nfl's own mouth.
