What they were rumored to have offered (~$5 mil per for 3/4 years) would have hurt them in the long run, and offering even more than that wouldn't be smart.

The real point is that they couldn't land him. And going after Booth only makes sense when you can replace him with something better. Until that happens, I'm not sure why anything has to be done.
