Don't get me wrong -- Carr is a very good player. Having said that why do you think there were only 3-4 teams chasing him?
Heck, why do you think only 3-4 teams were chasing Nnamdi the year before?
Most of the best run front-offices avoid getting into bidding wars for top end FAs -- they are rarely worth it.
Sometimes the best moves are the ones that aren't made.
That $10m could have been spent on a couple of mid level FAs for the DL and OL.
