    Comp picks make signing veteran players a bargain in free agency. You can sign a veteran for a year or two, let them go and hopefully pick up another comp pick when the veteran signs somewhere else.

    But, you can lose a comp pick by signing a vet in free agency. It's a whole +/- formula.

    The trick is to sign a player that is a free agent because he was cut by his team. As was the case for Peppers, Woodson and Guion I believe?

    So at what date, if any, does someone like Hayward being signed by another team not qualify to be included in the compensatory pick formula for the Packers? For instance, he sits around and isn't signed until next September and then fulfills all the other requirements of a CP (performance, salary, etc.)....Is there a cut-off date?

    Interesting to note this nugget from the John Clayton article about how New England trades for players at the end of contracts in order to get comp picks:

    I posted something about that being under consideration and captainWIMM posted that comp picks won't be able to be traded until the 2017 draft. :(

    Yes, the comp picks we would get for guys we lose in FA this year (2017 draft) can be traded.

    http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/14274468/nfl-owners-ok-compensatory-pick-trading-2017

    Originally, they talked about allowing it in 2016, but the article above was the last I heard.

    It looks like one of the two stories is wrong as the cbssports story is talking about the comp picks just awarded, "The NFL announced on Friday that 33 compensatory draft picks have been awarded to 13 teams. And for the first time, these picks can be traded."

    BTW here are the Packers picks, round and pick#:
    1 #27
    2 #57
    3 #88
    4 #125
    4 #131 comp
    4 #137 comp
    5 #163
    6 #200
    7 #248

    You guys appear to be joking, but TT is actually decently liberal with his picks. 2014 is the only year that he didn't make a draft-day trade, usually making 3-4 on average per my records.

    2015 - He bundled picks for Brett Hundley
    2013 - He traded down three times, turning three picks into six. Of those 6 picks he selected Eddie Lacy, Charles Johnson (now starting WR for Vikings), and David Bahktiari. He also traded up to get Jonathan Franklin, who showed promise before a rookie neck injury.
    2012 - He made three trades, including trading up to get Casey Heyward
    2011 - He made three draft-day trades
    2010 - Traded up to get Morgan Burnett, plus several other trades
    2009 - Traded back into 1st round for Clay Matthews
    2008 - He made a slew of trades, including trading down while still getting Jordy Nelson and trading down with Vikings to get Matt Flynn
    2007 - Brandon Jackson, Aaron Rouse, Allen Barbre, Korey Hall, and Desmond Bishop were all from draft trades
    2006 - Daryn Colledge, Greg Jennings, Jason Spitz, Will Blackmon, and Johnny Jolly all came from trades
    2005 - Let's just say that the Packers drafted 17 players that day

    Yeah but how many are still with the team? OK even in the league? Just saying quality vs quantity.

    Good post BTW. I was more referring to trading picks straight up for players and probably somewhat deep in my logic was his coveting of draft picks in general. But you are correct, TT does use those picks in very creative ways.

    According to this NFL.com article (http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap30...compensatory-picks-to-13-teams-for-2016-draft):
    "Beginning in 2017, clubs will be permitted to trade compensatory picks."
    Should be correct since it comes directly from the NFL's media outlet.

    Once again, Woodson was a true unrestricted free agent as he wasn't released by the Raiders before signing with the Packers.

    It seems like CBS messed it up in this article. While the original plan was to introduce the possibility of trading compensatory picks starting with this year's draft the owners decided to delay it until the 2017 draft.
