I saw somewhere that gettleman made a comment how the extra comp picks give them flexibilty to move up in the draft. While they can't trade the comp picks they could easily move other picks knowing they have so many other picks to rely on. He showed last year he's not afraid to do that for bene. Plus they have done such a good job finding value with udfa players, how many rookies can realistically make the roster.
Trade our 1st, 3rd and 5th for like pick 15? Sure. We still have 7 picks and likely a few udfa guys that will make the roster
of course. but that is more or less why we wouldnt get a comp return for losing lafell. that + snaps is the base formula with lots of little extras added on top
there are lots of tricks to getting comp picks, which can and should be exploited on a regular basis. look at the ravens, they ALWAYS focus on sign players who were cut specificallly so they dont counteract players lost for comp picks. same reason why GB finally signed Pepper as one of the very few FA they have signed in years.
You jokers are delirious re: kemba. He's nice and all but still pretty average for a starting pg. his shooting numbers are not good at all, and that is a massive factor. He will never be a plus defender due to his size.
