Saints Receive No Compensatory Picks

The Saints have received no compensatory picks from the NFL's free agency loss compensation system.

Despite losing DE Joe Johnson, DT La'Roi Glover, LB Keith Mitchell and WR Willie Jackson, the Saints were not awarded any extra draft selections in a formula that is based on comparative salaries and performances.

The Saints were not expecting any compensatory picks.

The Philadelphia Eagles received the highest selection, a late fourth round choice, while five teams received four extra choices, all expected to be late in the draft.
