    Well, I can’t complain about my results. I’d say I had 25 of 32 in the right round, and almost all of my misses were a result of guessing at unknown rules. They counted Rogers on full year IR for the Giants – the only IR player that affected the results. Richardson counted for KC and Indy got a net value pick, both of which I identified as possibilities. There is no previous history to justify the compensation for William Gay and Jason Jones.

    My real miss was on Oakland, they had a 6th round pick knocked out. I have to do some investigating into Samson Satele and Michael Bush, although I am pretty confident Bush was a natural UFA. Perhaps I missed a signing.

      Ah, Phillip Wheeler and his $710,000 salary was counted. That is very low to be counted, and that still means Satele or Bush was undervalued. Oakland got screwed.

      McKinney on IR also was counted. Something to remember for next year.

    If I get these all right, I’m going to Disney World.

    1. I might take you to Disney regardless. The original post has gotten over 27,000 views.

    Looks like the Ravens will be getting a lot of compensatory picks next year too with all the guys that left.

    1. Yep. Could get 4 more.

        There has to be some upside to cap hell and winning the Super Bowl.
