It's been that way forever. We lost Faneca and only got a 5th. No point in complaining.


They must have changed the formula. Faneca got 5yr/40M. Should have gotten a 3rd based on that but I think it's the cumulative contracts gain/lost that they base it on. (don't remember all the rest of those)

It's age. I remember back then they explained it by saying players over 30 could only get a 5th.


it wasnt an age thing it was a years tendered with 1 team. it was a little known clause in the compensation pics that had any player with over 10 years of service to 1 team maxed at a 5th round pick.

Based on this I don't know how he could have only been worth a fifth.


Well, first off, comp picks for next year havent even been determined yet. Not sure where youre getting a fifth rounder at this point (although thats about what Im expecting).

In regards to the criteria....

His contract isnt that big.

playing time


He hasnt logged a single snap of playing time with the Dolphins yet.

and postseason honors.


Again, he hasnt played a down yet outside of a Steelers uniform.

That all being said, outside of salary, nothing can be determined yet. BASED on the salary, a fifth seems about right....maybe we will get a 4th if he stays healthy and starts all year for them. 3rd perhaps if he makes the pro bowl.


I read on Steelers Depot that we're only getting a 5th for this. I should have read the article as it covers what you said.
