I’m reading the Bill Barnwell article on ESPN regarding things NFC teams should do this offseason. I came across an insight into the craziness and confusion of the Comp pick formula. Can anyone shed light?
I don’t understand this paragraph at all. What does the Eagles cutting a former Pitt player have to do with Pitts Compensatory pick?Fort holds an even more interesting spot in the compensatory universe for his old team. As expected, the Steelers netted a third-round compensatory pick for Le'Veon Bell when their star back signed with the Jets. In a rare foray into unrestricted free agency, though, Pittsburgh signed Chiefs cornerback Steven Nelson and Jags wideout Donte Moncrief to deals. At the moment, the Steelers are still in line to net that third-rounder for Bell, but if the Eagles cut Fort, Pittsburgh would lose a third-rounder and the only compensation it has to show for Bell.
