A better option?

They could have waited for the market to shake out to see what was available before giving a non-minimum contract to a guy that no other team was going to offer a contract on.

Michael Leighton was going to be available tomorrow. He was going to be available next week. He was going to be available in September. There's no need to do this right now.

I'm not an anti-Holmgren guy, but this isn't a good signing.
