I totally disagree. Carl had no choice. Gonzo's a fan favorite and one of their only good players on offense left who isn't old. A move like this keeps the fans happy and presents the illusion that he really cares. Even though the other areas need to be addressed, as long as they get some home wins and beat the Broncos in the regular season in their "Super Bowl," the fans will happily buy their tickets and jerseys, feed the mediocrity and be none the wiser.
