I'm not sure I'd even exercise walk away at the $3.5M. By the time arbitration cases are handled, we'll be deep into the summer anyway, and already know what our options and payroll are, so whatever the situation, the decision ought to be a no-brainer when it comes around. Either we still have roster and cap room for Desharnais. Or we don't. Most likely we will IMHO. But since he's the only notable RFA, and not necessarily core to our long-term plans, it just makes sense to wait and see how everything is shaping up before dealing with his case, since we can wait.
I agree 100%. Hoping we can snag a guy like Perry and/or Getzlaf and then we can worry about DD once the dream is either achieved or dead.
