We traded rb, lt, wr, etc for draft choices in '07. Does anyone have the current number of additional picks next year?
We won't ge jack for Howard and Bentley since we signed Brees and Fujita. Also, Bentley isnt even playingwell, we have an extra 3rd and 4th. and we should have some nice compensatory selections with the loss of Howard and Bentley. I'm not sure how much the signing of Brees will offset that.
All that looks correct, except I think we got some late round undisclosed pick when we traded Gandy (maybe a 7th).Ours:
No 7th (Traded our 7th for Shanle)
4th (from KC for Bennett)
4th (from Philly can a 3rd if Donte is resigned)
If I'm wrong please correct
Well part of the equation is performance and post-season honors...Bentley won't help at all in those areas....but hopefully we can get an extra pick.BTW, the Saints used a compensatory pick to draft Colston though it wasn't one the Saints actually "earned" by losing players.
I'm pretty hopeful the Saints will get an additional pick next year. The biggest acquisitions were Brees and Fujita (4 years, $12 million) but NO lost Bentley (highest paid C in NFL history), Howard (6 years, $30 million) and Fakhir Brown (5 years, $12 million).
