We were competing against those when we signed Ryan. He stuck to his guns and got a five year contract signed. I see no reason to think that is definitely going to change this time around. Maybe it will, but there is definitely no guarantee of that, let alone that they'll double dip.

I have no idea what the second sentence is referring to. I never said that there were free agents I'd rather have.
