How do you know that they hadn't already talked for a while at this point without touching ground?
Nashville could have asked for the moon in return for Weber...

So Holmgren decides to pursue Suter but obviously he doesn't look too interested in coming here from the beginning and the next logical step is to consider a one-for-one swap around JVR which is still better than ending up without any help on defense. At that point the market had already dried up.

The Weber OS was just a big gamble with slim chances to actually succeed.
