Jerry money-whipped Garrett who is now the highest paid OC in the league at $3 million per.
Let's see: take over an aging Ravens D with discipline issues, in a division where Pittsburgh is king and Cleveland's ascending; take over in Atlanta, which is a hot mess; or stay put, get paid more than many HCs, and take over the reins of what is (now) a pretty hot team. Decisions, decisions.
Boils down to, Garrett didn't wanna be Tomlin's bitch. Smart man.
