The period for determining compensatory picks has come and gone. Anyone signed by the Texans (or any other NFL team for that matter) on June 1st or later will have no impact on the compensatory pick calculations. For this reason, neither Alan Ball nor Justion Forsett have any potential to negatively impact those picks.
