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.
It was better than a slim chance. Their billionaire minority owner increased his stake in the team to create enough cashflow to finance the 13M bonus. If he decides he doesn't want to do that, it's very probable that Weber is in Philly.
