I would rather see the team continue to stockpile draft picks or add talent that will be here in 2014 then send a 2nd back for an OA who will not add anything for the year they are building towards.

A smart move IMO.

As for the others they could have added, if your target guys aren't available why settle for someone you were not seeking in the first place, especially if they take up an OA spot? The cost of the deal is irrelevant if the player does not appear to be the fit you are looking for.

This team does not need to add bodies just for the sake of adding a body, the kids still need development time.

That being said I can see one of these players moving elsewhere and having a banner year for someone else and we will all look back and say a 5th could have brought them here.
