Could be happening as we speak. Perhaps (isn't all of what we're saying on here 'perhaps'? but anyway) Howson has added the notion of two moves to address the d and clear some budget room to the idea of accomplishing both in the same maneuver (Chimera for Ehrhoff, i.e.). And perhaps he'll find a taker. Or perhaps he won't, given the number of decent FA players available without a contract or offered camp tryouts.

This could explain why the 'team in question is in no hurry' according to the one report. Howson doesn't want to have made one move without having the other in his back pocket. In the real world, that can be a tricky thing to do.

Again, I agree with you, just pointing out some stuff that muddies the water.
