They reportedly had 4 offer sheets (a member of the Avs forum is friends with ROR), but didn't sign. Well, until an offer that was just too good to pass up came along. At 6.5M next year, ROR had to sign, and probably didn't care if he ended up with COL, CGY, or CBJ for that kind of cash.
Probably O'Reilly's agent:
