What did we get instead? Robert Meachem. Jarrett Johnson. Atari Bigby. Eddie Royal. Crap. Crap. More crap.
When you give up a player like VJ, you need to pick up something else in return. We tried to actually hit the free agent market last season and it took a poop all over our face. If we would have just stood pat with what we had, we could have had VJ still or we would at least get a 3rd round compensatory pick. Instead, it looks like we are getting NOTHING.
According to the site Blogging the bEast, a site that analyzes and tried to predict compensatory picks, the Chargers will be left without a compensatory selection. The Chargers will be missing out on an extra selection in a draft that has a lot of talent in the middle rounds.
