Before the open of free agency, I got asked a lot what I thought would drive player decisions.
The city? The team? The organization? The coach?
Money, I said.
Don't doubt it.
Sidney Rice, you are Exhibit A.
It had to be money.
Or the prospect of catching passes in future years from Andrew Luck.
Rice agreed to a deal with the Seahawks Wednesday night that will pay him a reported $41 million with $18 million guaranteed.
Money had to be the reason.
Seattle is not a good situation right now. It won't be until the get a franchise passer.
The Vikings were a better option.
So whenever anybody asks why players sign with teams. The answer isn't the coach, the team or the city.
It's always about money.
