Yeah, we'll never know.

As your list suggests, he hadn't brought anyone onto the team that had much trade value in the first place. What teams would have wanted any of those guys?

Add to that a team in the playoff hunt that was also struggling to meet the cap floor, and I don't see much of a problem with Joe keeping a handful of UFA vets with vet-sized contracts who would have only brought in a handful of 4th round picks if traded.
