Factoring in the cost of the replacement during the first 2 seasons (let's say a solid 3C would cost 2.5-3M per), they might be better off hanging on to Horcoff for at least 1 more year.
There is one in current offer that's the point of this thread. And yes it's Horcoff actually I don't even think there's a choice if your working with a 60 mil cap.
