Well, sure, the $ was a factor. But maybe not the biggest factor since the $ wasn't really all that different. I think this had just as much to do with pride/ego (miffed about being asked to take a pay cut) and the ability to showcase himself as a 3-4 LB where he proved at his best in 2009. But if he wanted to win a Super Bowl I think he made the wrong choice. Combine that with having to uproot his life and it's a questionable decision to say the least. But it's his decision of course and he had every right to make it.
