Hoped, sure. But we all knew that wasn't going to happen.
Exactly. This is what happens on the open market, guys get paid more than they're worth usually. At least this move fills a huge need. I would have been significantly more pissed to see them overpay for a guy like Horton who would be a luxury on this team. Streit fills the single biggest need on the club, and I expect that the defense will look a hell of a lot better next year with just this one signing. I wish the deal would have been a year shorter, but the money doesn't really bother me that much.
But this is HF where if you're not underpaid, you're overpaid.
