    You get a compensatory pick if you lose a player in free agency. Depending on how good they were, you get a better pick. The Jets didn't really lose anyone notable that they didn't cut, so they don't get any.

    Is this a new thing, i know if you lost a FA in the 3rd year you got a draft pick from the team who took him, but i didnt know you get draft picks for losing a player.

    It's been going on for some time and it essentailly adds one xtra rounds worth of picks to the draft. There is a complex formul that determines what kind of comp pick you get and it is off set by free agents that you sign. The fact that the jets have lost a few players but have signed a number of them means we get no comp picks.
