Right. Finanacial reasons. Sure.
Oh, and winning Super Bowls never hurt either.
The majority of players on that list went on to win....BIG.
Thats why they left. Cause winning championships matters.
SD is the only team i know of that has had 2 SB MVP winning QBs on their team and yet they still somehow dont have any rings.
How do you F that up!?!?!?
