Compensatory free agents are determined by a formula based on salary, playing time and postseason honors. The formula was developed by the NFL Management Council. Not every free agent lost or signed by a club is covered by this formula.

At the risk of sounding stupid, how long have they been doing this?  Does the formula ever change?






It started in 1993 with unrestricted free agancy. The formula was tweaked since to reduce the value (lower rounds) of the comp picks.

However, the Colts are not pleased. . .


The Indianapolis Colts have been awarded two compensatory picks in the April 23-24 draft, but are in no mood to thank the NFL for the gesture.


The Colts believe at least one of the selections -- a fourth-rounder, No. 135 overall -- should have been higher in the drafting process. The team also received a fifth-round pick, No. 173 overall.


"I'm asking for a clarification right now and haven't gotten one at this point," president Bill Polian said Tuesday during a break from the NFL owners' meetings. "I know how the system works. We want to know how (NFL officials) arrived at what they did."


Compensatory picks are awarded on the basis of the net number of free agents a team loses the previous season. The Colts were a net minus-2 after losing starting linebacker Marcus Washington and starting cornerback David Macklin while signing no applicable free agent.


Washington signed with the Washington Redskins and proved to be one of the best free agent acquisitions throughout the league. He started all 16 games and was voted to his first Pro Bowl.


"I would like to know how they applied (the system) to Marcus," Polian said.


Coach Tony Dungy also was befuddled by the apparent slight. He chose his words carefully when considering the Colts' compensation.


"Just say I don't understand the formula," Dungy said. "When you lose a guy that goes to another team and plays every play and goes to the Pro Bowl, and you don't sign anyone, I just don't understand it."
