Dolphins not awarded any compensatory picks

DANA POINT, Calif. -- The NFL has just awarded 32 compensatory draft picks to 16 clubs and, well, do you want the bad news or the worse news first?

The bad news is the Dolphins were awarded no compensatory picks.

The worse news is that AFC East rival New England was awarded three compensatory picks. The Patriots, which already had four picks in the first two rounds, were awarded a third-round pick (97th overall), a fifth-round pick (170th), and a sixth-round pick (207th).

No other AFC East team was awarded a compensatory pick.

The compensatory picks are awarded based on a formula that values what players a team loses do with their new teams.

any one knows any one doesn't need his dolphins game tickets for next season?i can get it of your hands for free.

Here is a link to read-up on how the compensatory picks work.


You will see that it's based on a formula NOT by random acts of kindness by the NFL.

It makes sense that successful teams are given the comp picks, because their free agents are typically targeted at the start of FA.

What team do you think will be targeted… a team that goes 18-1 or a team that goes 1-15???

Who will play Oswald cobblepot(aka the penguin) in the upcoming block buster movie " Lex luthor Vs. The 600 lb. Tuna" any thoughts who should get the roll????


From now on, I will be using the screename "The Knight who says Ni!" when I am posting on the Herald. I will reserve this wonderful name only for you people.

any one here thinks that fins will finish year at....10-6?

bungle, Is that "the knight that says neek" made famous by Monty python??

the name "the knight who says nil" i used 3 weeks ago but good try mr.bungle

Now iam confused???


This rings a loud bell to all NFL teams that don't have a great scouting system and decide to go the free agent route. If you sign free agents the odds are you aren't going to be part of the compensatory draft and if that fa is a bust you lose double. We have done this for years and look at what happened. 1-15.
When we are yelling to sign a FA we had better take a good long look at the consequences.

Did someone just suggest that we could get a 3rd rounder for Beck and a 2nd rounder for Ginn?

Thanks, I needed the laugh.

Beck is worth no more than a late 6th and Ginn no more than a 5th.

Obama goods and alienman, your telling me we don't have a socialist system in place already. Talk about idiocracy alienman, and OSBG why don't you do a little research and you will know that people in Europe out live Americans. America has the highest infant mortality rate of any leading westernized country in the world. You are right alienman I won't get into a political debate over this on this blog, but you guys should know what your talking about before you write stupid stuff on this blog.

Dolphins4life.....i agree with and you must know that most if not all who talk like goods and alienman they ARE just fox news robots and they never visited any place further than disney and THEY don't know how nice living in europe and canda is as in the good OLD usa

Aqua1's not to bright.

How does Belli-cheat and the Pati-cheats get away with robbery every year? Simple- Goodell and Bob Kraft are bossom-buddies.

Gotta disagree nickyNY....If I was living in Europe, I would bring home less money as they would tax the hell out of what I make...not like I'm happy getting taxed out of the wazzoo here...but from what I here...the tax rates are brutal there.

that's 'hear'

Compensatory picks shouldn't even exist.

Can anyone answer me this question? Maybe the Cuban Menance or Nathaniel Dodsworth or even Armando? This has been bothering me since I was a kid.

What exactly is a Bill??? As in the Buffalo Bills??? I mean, the City's name is Buffalo, so the animal (buffalo) is not what the team is named after, it is a Bill. A Bill is their mascot, not a buffalo. What the hell is a Bill? And if it is their team's name, why is there a buffalo on the helmet? This is all very troubling to all of us in Golfito.

That's bull s_ _ t the league needs to look at this formula.

asante samuell,donte stallworth,and randall gay were the reason the patriots received 3 picks.........they determine the picks on the amount of the contract of the departing players...that is the reason they received 3 picks. name a few phin players that were signed away and then you'll realize why you dont get any picks...
