According to Jim Wexell of scout.com, the signing of Clarke Haggans by the Arizona Cardinals gives us an excellent chance of picking up an extra 3rd rounder next year. Compensatory picks are given based on net loss and prior to the Clarke Haggans signing we were up one and down one, in other words we were breaking even and wouldn't have gotten ****.
Down Alan Faneca
Up Justin Hartwig
Now with Arizona signing of Clarke Haggans his loss can be the one that offsets the Hartwig signing and the HUGE contract the Jets gave Faneca will buy us an extra 3rd round pick. That will be huge for us next year!
