Rams are 1st team to earn compensatory picks thanks to NFL’s new hiring initiative
quote:

The NFL approved a new hiring initiative in November that rewards teams that lose minority coaching and GM candidates to other teams by compensating them with draft picks. And fittingly, the Rams are now the first team to benefit from that new rule.

With the Lions hiring Brad Holmes as their new GM, the Rams will receive two third-round compensatory picks – one in 2021 and another in 2022. It hurts to lose their director of college scouting, but the return of two third-round picks eases the pain, for sure.

And the Rams may not be done compiling picks from this new initiative. Ray Farmer is a personnel consultant with the Rams right now and is a candidate to be hired as the Jaguars’ new general manager.

If they lose Farmer, too, they would add another two third-round compensatory picks, just as they have with Holmes.

This new minority hiring initiative was a great idea for the league, as it rewards teams for developing both coaches and executives as they advance their careers. The Rams are the first team to benefit from it, but they certainly won’t be the last.

If the Falcons go through with hiring Fontenot for their GM position the Saints will be next.

if you get a compensatory pick based on minority hiring practices, you should be forced to draft a Hispanic or Asian player with it

Will the Rams have to turn those players over to Detroit if this guy gets canned?

I thought that they had to keep the hire onboard for 2 years to earn the picks?

Teams should get more draft picks if they draft white wide receivers, running backs, and cornerbacks.

Teams don’t fire GMs after 2 years, this one is a lock

I believe there is a program already for teams having certain minorities like polynesian islanders on their practice squad. Correct me if I am wrong but they don't count against the roster limits and essentially they cost nothing to keep in the organization.

Wait a minutes. Teams are getting drafts picks if they lose a black guy?

Found it

quote:

The International Player Pathway Program (IPPP) is a scheme run by the National Football League (NFL) to increase the number of non-American and non-Canadian players in the NFL.


International Player Pathway Program

quote:

First, the team can keep their IPP player on their 53-man roster. If they waive the player, he goes through the NFL's waiver system, which allows him to be claimed by another team. If he clears waivers, the team can sign the player to their practice squad. If they do, they may elect to take an exemption for the IPP player, giving them an extra spot on their practice squad. If they utilize the exemption, that player cannot be signed to the active roster of any team during the season. If the exemption is declined, the player is treated like any other practice squad player, and can be promoted to a team's active roster. If the player chooses to sign with a team other than the one to which he was assigned, that team may not claim the exemption.

Clown world.

If you're going to give picks for encouraging the hiring of minority staff, why not require that the picks are used on minority players?

White CB/RB's, Hispanic kickers, Samoan linemen?

Yes if you develop a minority, you'll be rewarded now
