The Jets Will Not Receive Any Compensatory Picks

Chris Trotman

Based on last year's free agent pool, the New York Jets will not receive additional picks.

According to our friend Jake Steinberg:

This isn't a huge shock. I'm going to quote The Jets Blog here on why none of our free agents from last year netted us compensatory draft picks:

- Mark Brunell, LaDainian Tomlinson and Donald Strickland were not picked up by another team.
- Michael Campbell, Brodney Pool and Jamaal Westerman did not remain with the team who signed them.
- Ropati Pitoitua was cut rather than having his contract expire, so he is not a qualifying UFA.
- Nick Folk, Sione Po’uha and Bryan Thomas were retained.
- Marquice Cole and Matt Mulligan were RFAs (as were Aaron Maybin and Patrick Turner, who were retained anyway).
- Plaxico Burress, Kevin O’Connell and Jim Leonhard were not signed until after the free agent signing period ended.

That leaves one potentially qualifying UFA: Robert Turner.

Turner is a decent backup, but not worth compensatory picks. It's a bit disappointing since we need all the picks we can get, but as I stated, it's not a surprise.
