We should get a 6th and probably a 7th
For the record, I don't believe I did anything wrong and here is exactly what I posted, all of the information which I verified myself independently and even edited to dis-include a player that Nublar7 had mistakenly included.
I'm an open book. If anyone has a problem with this please feel free to discuss it with me.The qualifying signings and losses would be the following, IMO:
Projected Dolphins Signed qualifiers:
Artis Hicks - (1 year, $2,000,000)
Richard Marshall - (3 years, $16,000,000)
Projected Dolphins Lost qualifiers:
Chad Henne - (2 years, $6,750,000)
Will Allen - (1 year, $1,000,000)
Kendall Langford - (4 years, $24,000,000)
If what this CT guy says is true about signed plays canceling out guys with similar contracts or lower contracts, before higher contracts...then it would seem Richard Marshall would cancel out Chad Henne, Artis Hicks will cancel out Will Allen, and that would leave Kendall Langford uncanceled.
EDIT: The reason I noted that this was "IMO" instead of the opinion of Nublar7 was specifically because Nublar7 thought Legedu Naanee would be included in the formula whereas I have come to believe that he would not be because his contract is not over the million dollar threshold. Just wanted to explain that.
2. No, that was not my verification process. I verified that the contract values were close enough to correct, and I double-checked each name on the list to see if it met the criteria for inclusion in the compensatory pick formulas. Hence, I edited out Legedu Naanee who does not meet the criteria.
3. Who said I'm a compensatory pick "guru"? Certainly not me. Yes, I admitted right here in this thread that I don't know the compensatory pick process very well. Hence in the three weeks or so between this thread and the other one, at SOME point I actually LEARNED more about the compensatory process. And that's how I knew Legedu's contract probably wouldn't qualify for the process. Whaaaa? You mean I don't come in here, post on a thread, and then go into hibernation until the next thread? LMFAO.
4. Are you Chris Cordero? Because this is actually pretty funny.
