    Other team comp picks

    Ravens, Jets lead way with 4 comp picks each

    The Ravens and Jets were each awarded four 2014 compensatory draft picks at the league meetings in Orlando.

    Compensatory picks began in 1996 as a means of "compensating" clubs for free-agent losses. Ozzie Newsome's Ravens have been awarded more picks (41) than any team in football, and this year tied the Jets for the most comp picks. Baltimore picked up an additional third-rounder, two fourth-rounders, and a fifth-rounder in exchange for "losing" Paul Kruger, Dannell Ellerbe, Cary Williams, and Ed Reed in 2013 free agency. Put simply, that is robbery by Newsome.

    Why did we get a comp pick?  Was it for Talib?

    Re: Other team comp picks

    Given the Ravens got 4 picks for 2013 FA player losses, one wonders if that could be a strategy to not sign an FA from your own team, let them go to another in order to gain additional draft picks the following season.  By following that strategy, you actually gain something by not cutting them versus "losing" out on the FA negotations.

    Here is the answer:

    http://blog.masslive.com/patriots/2014/03/new_england_patriots_awarded_4.html

    The league uses a formula to decide if a team lost more or better free agents than the ones it signed the previous year to award the 32 compensatory picks.

    Last year, New England lost wide receiver Wes Welker, offensive lineman Donald Thomas, safety Patrick Chung, and running back Danny Woodhead. It then signed wide receiver Danny Amendola, offensive tackle Will Svitek, and traded for Sopoaga.
