Kristian Dyer makes a lot of sense, his tweets and stories are generally quite informative with a solid foundation. Tonight he has a piece which to me makes a lot of sense, and if I were to run an organization this is certainly the approach I would take.
A team executive spoke to Dyer about the teams perceived lack of ability to close the deal
That makes perfect sense to me. You don't get in a bidding war, you evaluate a player based on his on-field performance. If his asking price is beyond how you evalute him, then maybe it's in the best interests long term to let him walk away.

I know people are upset about the lack of movement, however I have seen nothing from Idzik for me to suggest that he doesn't know what he's doing. The contract was too rich on some of the FA's and they were being paid more than their performance warranted, well then you let them walk. You don't get held ransom to agent demands, that's how you get yourself into long term cap hell.
I know a lot of you won't like it, but personally and I can only speak for myself, I like the calm and calculated approach that Idzik is taking.
