Restating the obvious, Dorsey learned from Ted Thompson

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2014/04/03/packers-prefer-compensatory-picks-over-unrestricted-free-agents/


Packers General Manager Ted Thompson has a formula for building his team, and heís sticking with it.

Thompson believes in building through the draft, not free agency, and that includes acquiring more draft picks by declining to sign unrestricted free agents. In the NFL, teams that lose more in free agency than they acquire get compensatory picks, and the Packersí moves in free agency this year indicate that theyíre already thinking about acquiring compensatory picks for next year. The NFL doesnít public the precise formula used to determine compensatory picks, but the simple version is that if the unrestricted free agents you lose are better, higher-paid players than the unrestricted free agents you sign, then the NFL will compensate you the following year with compensatory picks.

As the Green Bay Press-Gazette points out, even the one big name the Packers have signed this offseason, Julius Peppers, was a free agent because he was released by the Bears, not because his previous contract expired. That means he wonít count as an unrestricted free agent addition for the Packers for the purpose of determining their compensatory picks next year.

Last year the Packers lost two key players, receiver Greg Jennings and linebacker Erik Walden, as unrestricted free agents. And the Packers didnít sign any unrestricted free agents last year. As a result, this year theyíre getting an extra third-round pick and an extra fifth-round pick as compensatory selections.

This year the Packers have again not signed away any players whose previous contract expired, but they have lost four players, center Evan Dietrich-Smith, receiver James Jones, defensive lineman C.J. Wilson and offensive lineman Marshall Newhouse. That means the Packers will almost certainly do well when the compensatory picks are passed out a year from now.

Building through the draft and declining to overspend in free agency would be a smart strategy even if the NFL didnít have a compensatory pick system to reward frugal teams. But when compensatory picks are added to the equation, itís easy to see why Thompson declines to go after free agents. The Packers have been successful this way. Itís surprising more teams havenít copied them.


May not be popular here but Dorsey is doing exactly the same thing Thompson and Ozzie Newsome are doing, stockpile draft picks and let UFAs get overpaid elsewhere.

Considering where we are drafting, BPA at position of need is fine with me.

I also wouldn't be surprised if Flowers is cut or traded after June 1st.....especially if they think they'll be fine with Smith and Cooper on the outside with Parker in the slot....or if they draft a CB high.

I love getting neg reps from people that don't even have the balls to participate in the discussion.

Reid knows what to do with a top flight TE. He has never had one as a HC, which probably isn't his fault. There aren't that many in existence. If we could find the next Jimmy Graham or Gronk, I'm sure Reid would work that weapon into his WC offense.

I'm not that concerned about position...I just want a high-level impact player. The Chiefs, like most teams, have a few of those guys, but could always use more.

Actually, if you'd stop talking out of both sides of your mouth, htismage, the whole discussion would be far less frustrating for everybody.

You want Alex Smith, but you don't want to give up two 2nds for him? It's a child's world where we get everything we want. That was the price...I'm sure the Chiefs tried to get him for less. All in all, it was a great investment, bordering on a "steal."

You don't even begin to understand what I'm saying. It has nothing at all to do with what I WANT.

How dare anyone like the player but not be happy with what we had to give up for him.

So if we traded two 1st round picks for Jimmy Graham....you can only be happy with both or hate both? Because I'd love having Jimmy Graham but furious that we gave up two 1st round picks to get him.

Bullshit. You stated earlier in the thread that it's not what YOU want. Go back and read your own words.

Conceptually, it's quite simple to understand your points. It's just that you're inconsistent in expressing them.

A really nice sports car costs $100K...you buy it, you drive it and you love it. You are really going to grudge about the price you paid for it? I wouldn't. Life's too short. The same goes for players. There's a price to get certain players. That's just a reality of doing business.

Why don't you go ahead and show me then, big guy.

Instead of wasting time sending me neg reps (when you're not man enough to even have yours on ), spend some time pointing out the posts where I've contradicted myself.

I've consistently said that this has nothing to do with what I wanted.

Stop being such a ****ing pussy and prove it.

I can love the sports car and absolutely hate the $100k price tag. That's my ****ing right. I can like Alex Smith and hate the fact that they gave two 2nd round picks. Once again...IT'S MY ****ING RIGHT.
