It also says they probably are not going to "go for it" this year. That would mean they would get Duncan. The fact that the didn't wait until he settled his situation with the Cards means they really was no "there" there in those rumors.
I don't think this is any indication about going for it (or not going for it) this year. I think clearly they are thinking about the future, and it's good to see they went after a guy in demand that they're (presumably) willing to pay more for. But I think the Duncan thing probably got explored behind the scenes and probably determined it was unlikely, so they acted quickly to secure Price.
