Robertson trade yields no pick for Jets

There's still a little confusion over the terms of the Robertson trade so I thought I'd post this:

As it turns out, Robertson only played in around 50% of the plays, so the the contingency clause that stipulated our giving them a pick if he played in over 65% of the plays was never met -- not surprisingly.

There's been some continuing confusion over this on other sites (not here, of course) and I wanted to put an end to that. Early reports, whose sourcing was probably suspect, had a fairly high pick going to the Jets if contingent performance standards were met. Whether or not this information was correct, which I doubt considering the Jets were at the brink of cutting him rather than pay the bonus he was due a week after the trade here was finalized, besides the fact that he failed his physicals with all prospective trade partners, the Jets are not due any further compensation.

Denver's allotment of draft picks is currently 9, with 2 extra picks due for Colbert (Seattle, a 5th-#4, compensatory picks will inflate the overall number and placement is still uncertain) and Foxworth (Atlanta, currently their 7th but will become their 6th if he re-signs, and there's ongoing negotions and it looks likely).
