Do we get any draft picks for Kurt S?

Since this is a lateral move, we shouldn't get something from the Lions? <br /><br />Or did that big bad greedy Dan Snyder waive his right to compensation, just like he did last year with Ray Rhodes? <br /><br />Or did we forfeit any compensation by first saying he was to be fired, then taking that back?

He was fired. The Skins didn't nor couldn't take it back. What they did was reconsidered him for the job, but he was no longer a part of the coaching staff at that time.

Yeah, unfortunately, Dan Snyder fired the whole lot.<br /><br />No compensation for anyone on the old staff. <br /><br />Add that to the fact that Tags will probably screw us on compensation picks, and will probably just have our 6 picks. (7 minus 1 for Marty.)

Don't be so sure we'll be screwed on compensation picks. Since Johnson, Thrash and Derek Smith helped their teams make the playoffs, we should at least get one 5th round pick plus a pair of 6th rounders.<br /><br />My understanding is the highest compensation available in a 4th rounder but the player usually has to make the Pro Bowl for that to happen.<br /><br />Since Thrash tied Staley for the team lead in receptions and the Eagles made it to the NFC Championship game, that should be grounds for a 5th round compensatory pick. <br /><br />Smith and Johnson were both starters on playoff teams so that should be grounds for two 6th round compensatory picks.<br /><br />If we receive anything less, complaints should abound and Tags should be forced to share a motel room for a month with Al Davis.

JimboDaMan - Think about what you're saying for a second. Since Gibbs left has there been a Redskins coach or assistant worth draft picks? <img border="0" title="" alt="[smile]" src="smile.gif" /> <br /><br />Ray Rhodes, by virtue of his defense ranking #4 overall, was our best opportunity. And Marty squandered it.<br /><br />I think last offseason was the end of the phase of compensating players/draft picks for coaches.

True.<br /><br />But we also picked up some FA's that played very well, especiall on our OL where our RB just broke the franchise record AGAIN.<br /><br />Who knows what will happen, but I agree, I think we should get SOME picks.<br /><br />How many is the question.

I think this should clear up a lot of the misconceptions about compensatory picks. The first compensatory picks were given out at the end of the 3rd round last year, with Dallas, Jacksonville, and Buffalo receiving picks. <br /><br /><a href="http://cbs.sportsline.com/u/football/nfl/2001/draft/compensatory.htm" target="_blank">http://cbs.sportsline.com/u/football/nfl/2001/draft/compensatory.htm</a>

Yea, but I don't think that matters.<br /><br />I believe they have some formula, and take all the people we lost to FREE AGENCY, and then compare to the ones we gained via FREE AGENCY.<br /><br />All the guys I listed were FA's of some type, so they count. <br /><br />I still think we ended in the negative, and should get a pick or two.

From memory, the free agents signed by Marty who contributed in some form:<br /><br />1) Ben coleman<br />2) Dave Szott<br />3) Tony Banks (as disgusting as it was)<br />4) The fullback from KC whose name excapes me for the moment)<br />5) Lockett<br />6) Otis leverette (minimal but he did play some)<br />7) Dorian Boose (for part of season)<br />8) Jones at LB<br />9) Keith Lyle<br />10) Kent Graham <br />11) Matt Campbell<br />12) The blocking TE<br />13) Ethan Albright (long snapper)<br />14) Conway (Kicker)<br />15) the punter<br />16) Ki-Jana Carter<br />17) Greer <br /><br />Now list the free agent losses:<br />The most significant were Brad, Derek Smith, Thrash, kalu, Greg Jones. Tre, Stubblefield and those who were cut DO NOT count.<br /> <br /> [ January 31, 2002: Message edited by: Montilar ]

</font><blockquote><font size="1" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">quote:</font><hr /><font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif"> 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.</font><hr /></blockquote><font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">Reads to me like compensatory fa's lost less compensatory fa's signed. I assume then that those signed are only compensatory for the same reason the guys we lost were compensatory. So, based on the list provided by Montilar (thanks), I'd think we'd have 3 (Brad, Derek Smith, Thrash) - 3 (Coleman, Lockett, Cambell all the others were street fas at time of signing) which equals 0. We might get one because the loss of Brad and Thrash could be considered major. Of course, Danny has made some enemies in the NFL front office.
