Some of that Carr money would have been nice to have in last year and/or this year's FA.
Extra cap space is always nice to have. If anything, going for Carl Nicks rather than Brandon Carr last year would have been the best move, in this scenario.
This years OL class is both either too expensive or not worth it at all. We can't afford to pay for Jake Long, or Vollmer, or even Clady. And the guards this year... well there are no Carl Nicks or Ben Grubbs this year, but the market will still demand big, Brandon Carr like contracts.
