Most people have become savvy to the comp pick game by now, especially knowing John Schneider likes to play it as much as any NFL GM. With every move comes a bevy of questions from fans about how it affects the comp formula. So we’ve put together a real-time tracker, using the excellent tool created by Nick Korte at OverTheCap.com.
Comp count: Plus-2 (no picks)
6 — DE Bruce Irvin ($5.9m APY)
6 — OT Brandon Shell ($5.5m)
6 — C/G B.J. Finney ($4m)
7 — DE Benson Mayowa ($3m)
7 — OT Cedric Ogbuehi ($2.3m)
5 — OT George Fant ($9m)
6 — DE Quinton Jefferson ($6.75m)
7 — DT Al Woods ($2.75m)
A lot like 2017 and 2018, Schneider has not worried about playing the game this offseason. He signed five qualifying UFAs and lost just three before the April 27 deadline.
It is vaguely possible, though highly unlikely, that the Seahawks could get a fifth-round comp if they end up cutting three of the additions before Week 10 and Fant, Jefferson and Woods remain with their new teams.
DE Jadeveon Clowney will not factor if he signs elsewhere.
OL Germain Ifedi’s one-year deal with Chicago surprisingly was for the vet minimum, which means he won’t count as a loss.
