Because it assumes that we will spend it in the future which I am not sure we will. I don't believe Glass is sitting there with his accountant saying to pass on Jackson and throw $12MM in a 3-year CD to be ready for the 2014 offseason. It doesn't work like that because a million other scenarios could happen between now and then.
I think we have a chance to win this division next year, and adding Jackson will help that goal without blocking prospects or giving up valuable talent.
