Edit: I'm just sad and disappointed really. ROR was probably my favorite player and I dont like what he did.
This is one of the few fair critiques on Sherman in this situation that I've agreed with as well. He should have put more options on the table.
I mentioned early on in this that I probably would have tried to offer something like that as well. Even if it didn't eat up any UFA years, but that's just me. Depending on the term, I don't know how much I would have gone above $4M though either, and from the sounds of it, that probably wasn't enough but who knows.
