Any idea how the comp structure works?  How would they get a 3rd, for example?

 

The Titans aren’t getting squat for comp picks unless someone signs Mariota to a starting QB salary.  

 

Which is probably more likely than Johnny Manziel or Colin Kaepernick getting an strong offer, but not nearly as solid as the blockbuster offers Mettenberger will be fielding.

According to Beddingfield, multiple teams will be lining up to do just that.  So we're good.

All 31 of the other teams have all made Mettenberger an offer, some even to start.  But they haven’t been good enough.

That’s the best bet at this point. We can just hope Mariota gets a decent backup QB contract and maybe we get a good comp pick out of it.

This implies that the compensatory pick is determined by the new FA contract signed. Is that right? And isn't a 3rd Round pick the best you can get?

 

FOUND THIS...

 

The basics of the compensatory system

Again, all the material in this section is summarized from an OverTheCap article on the topic, or in some cases, from their original source.

1. To qualify for compensatory picks, you need to lose more (or better) free agents than you sign from other teams

As the NFL explains, compensatory picks are awarded to teams that lose more or better compensatory free agents than they acquire. The number of picks a team can receive equals the net loss of compensatory free agents, up to a maximum of four. Compensatory free agents are determined by a secret formula based on salary, playing time and postseason honors. Not every free agent lost or signed is covered by the formula.

In order to qualify for the comp equation, a player must have been a true Unrestricted Free Agent whose contract had expired or was voided after the previous season (i.e., he cannot have been released by his old team); [generally speaking,] he must sign during the UFA signing period

There are some detailed exceptions to these rules, but they are not really important to this summary.

2. Each qualifying free agent must be assigned a value based on his contract, playing time and postseason honors, and that value corresponds to a round in the draft.

Start with the actual APY of the contract signed.

Subtract from the actual APY any money that the compensatory formula does not count. It has been determined that workout bonuses, incentives, and salary escalators are the most common money figures that the compensatory formula does not count.

Adjust the APY by applying a coefficient based upon the percentage of offensive or defensive snaps the player took in his first year under the contract.

Apply a positive coefficient to each UFA that obtained postseason honors

3. Once an adjusted APY has been determined, each UFA is given a value that either (i) assigns him as a CFA to a particular round ranging from the 3rd to the 7th, or (ii) does not qualify him as a CFA at all

The system for doing this is quite complex, but you don’t really have to understand it. OverTheCap publishes a cancellation chart on which they show their projected value for every free agent who changes teams in an off season. At any given point in the free agency period, you can click to this chart and see the status of any NFL team you are interested in.

4. Finally, once each team’s list of CFAs lost and gained are determined and valued, one-to-one cancellations are applied. Cancellations work as follows:

A CFA gained by a team cancels out the highest-valued available CFA lost that has the same round valuation of the CFA gained.

If there is no available CFA lost in the same round as the CFA gained, the CFA gained will instead cancel out the highest-available CFA lost with a lower round value.

A CFA gained will only cancel out a CFA lost with a higher draft order if there are no other CFAs lost available to cancel out.

Any team that has more CFAs lost than CFAs gained will then be eligible for compensatory picks for the CFAs lost that were not cancelled out by CFAs gained.

The key point here is that a team will only be awarded one or more compensatory picks if that team loses more qualifying free agents to other teams than it signs in a single off season.

To maximize the compensatory picks received, the team would lose free agents with high APY (average contract $ per year) and sign no one, or players with low APY.

5. There are two key restrictions that may limit the number of compensatory picks a team may receive:

There is a strict limit of 32 compensatory picks that are awarded every year. If the formula initially awards more than 32 compensatory picks, all picks ranked 33rd and below are not awarded

A team may not be awarded any more than four compensatory picks in one year. If the formula initially awards a team more than four, the lowest of the picks over the per-team limit of four are not awarded

When would the pick be awarded?

Compensatory picks are awarded by the NFL Management Council, and apply to the draft in the year that follows the Free Agency period. In other words, free agents who are signed in this (2018) off season will determine compensatory picks used by teams in the 2019 draft.

If Tanny can win games. And Mariota can win games. And neither command a fools ransom, why trade either?

If Mariota could win games he wouldn't be benched.

Mett has too much respect for Brady, Brees, Rodgers, etc.      He's allowing them to step down and retire gracefully before he comes in and rewrites all their records.
