I think comps are only given out for FAs that walk, not those that are cut... could be wrong though.

Please don't talk if you don't know the words coming.out of your mouth. The first year rr came here gamble was the top corner in the NFC and arguably the 2nd best in the league. Check your stat sheets before you go rambling.

Gamble hasn't shown much over the last 4 years. 2008 was his last good year but it was very good and he was solid before that. He is not a game changer anymore.

You're right. You only get comp picks for FAs that walk, not cuts. The only comp pick we MIGHT get next year is if D. Edwards goes somewhere for a decent contract and/or plays really well.

edit: I suppose Capt is a potential comp pick too.

The draft is still coming.

We still have the draft picks we have to sign...and scrubs just to field a somewhat respectable roster.

Gamble being cut simply took us from being over the cap to now not being over. No real FA is coming without Gross, Beason, or Williams being touched( or another move not discussed here)

Draft picks count at rookie minimum until they sign their deals late summer, and with the rule of 51 in force in the offseason, rookies do not impact the cap even at the rookie minimum unless you have fewer than 51 signed players.

Bottom line, we don't have to worry about money for draft picks until post June 1st. So yes, we have plenty of money to sign a respectable FA prior to the draft.

You don't get picks for players you cut.

As long as you are using the right stats it is useful.

The ones posted earlier don't mean much.

Stats are stats dude. Stop trying, you have nothing else to back that up

Not sure what that means but here are some good CB stats. You can click on different columns for different metrics.

Not taking a side, but:

Stats are a numerical compilation of events that actually happened.

Keywords: actually happened

All those stats tell me is that he has been a pretty solid CB for us, and thats without taking into account the type of defense we were running when Fox was here. We have had a lot of players come thru and play in the secondary since he was drafted and he has been the steady one all the way up to now. If he wasnt worth it we would have let him go a long time ago just like everybody else. He has been here 9 years and we couldnt find a more talented DB to put in the secondary. That says a lot about everyone else not him. Cant argue that.
