compensatory picks


Recommended Posts

Wrote the Great Blue about the formula, response:

Hi Kirk: The league has a formula (that no one undestands) that includes net losses of players, the salary that the players leaving and coming signed for, as well as some factor of a players productivity (eg making the Pro Bowl. It seems that the net losses of players though is the most important.

This was from last year - per the NFL site...

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.

The number of picks a team receives equals the net loss of compensatory free agents up to a maximum of four. The 32 compensatory choices announced will supplement the 223 choices in the seven rounds of the 2005 NFL Draft (April 23-24). This year, the compensatory picks will be positioned within the third through seventh rounds based on the value of the compensatory free agents lost.

Compensatory free agents are determined by a formula based on salary, playing time and postseason honors. The formula was developed by the NFL Management Council. Not every free agent lost or signed by a club is covered by this formula.
