That's exactly it - Carr liked it here and we were willing to pay him well for his role here, but he made it clear he wanted more time as a CB - and he's just not that good of a CB. This team is not cheap at all - just picky about who they put their money into. $1M extra here and there for marginal players adds up, and that keeps you from signing your core players. Did you miss the wave of extensions MR put together over the last couple years to lock up our key players, giving our 2 most important O linemen huge salaries? Big Al is not the kind of guy you break the bank for. First off, the Titans knew he would likely be suspended some games next year for his car accident ordeal. His motivation has been a question from day 1. The $2M difference was per year in guaranteed money, but the Skins dangled the extra $53M in money Al will never see, but that doesn't matter to his agent. And the guy hasn't played a full season since his rookie year. Way too risky to make him the "top paid defensive player in history".
