Worth noting that in the Fox era, only one time has the team traded a player solely for picks, that being the Kris Jenkins trade. It's mostly player for player or picks for a player.

I started this off as a comparison of this offseason with the 2002 and 2003 offseasons when Fox was just starting to build the team, but for now all I've been able to look at was raw numbers. The team's history pages don't have easy tracking for players picked up (or lost) from cuts, waivers, etc. I'll have to look for another source on that.

I'll have to go deeper on it later.

The number of trades surprises me, I had forgotten about a lot of them. Common sense suggests another trade will be made, be it in or out, so anyone worried about the current status of the roster needs to be patient

Wow nice breakdown. I had forgotten how many UFA we signed in '08, that's crazy. This year will be lowest amount of picks we've had in the Fox era. Barring any trades of course.

So, every season we signed more UFA's than we lose, we have a winning record...?

EDIT: Damn... beat me by a minute. Gotta stop letting work emails get in the way of my Huddle productivity. :D
