Then he wound up giving Cromartie more money than he would have had to give him had he signed him sooner because Cro's agent knew he had Tannenbaum over a barrel.
We can't fill every hole. It was clearly documented at the time that: We could only keep 1 of Braylon or Holmes. They went with Holmes. Also, it was clear Brad Smith would be a casualty. As far as RT, I don't remember there being any top FA available and also at that time Hunter was coming off a pretty good playoff performance so they weren't really looking for a RT...
