No other team had a the high comp picks the Bucs had and came away with nothing. A number of teams would not have received comp picks (not enough UDFAs left) or would have only received a 6th or 7th.
But the Bucs were the only team with a premium comp pick to walk away with no 3rd or 4th. That’s criminally incompetent.
Maybe I misread the chart, but it appears that the Bucs signed FAs to fill holes in their roster.
Is the problem the Bucs didn’t trade those players like Kwon before they became UFAs for draft picks? Or is it by signing FAs nullified any chance of receiving comp picks ?
It’s that signing players nullified comp picks. If they signed one less qualifying free agent like, say, Bradley Pinion, they would get a third round pick next year. If they signed two less qualifying free agents, they would get a third and fourth next year.
