I'm going to assume that it's 95% money-related. He's 33, coming off a major injury, and he's stated he only wants to play for Seattle (or a contender). In this market, he's probably only worth $2M/year with very few guarantees. That's what I think he's wrestling with. Is it worth the effort to get back into football shape when he has no guarantees to make the team, and he won't earn close to the money that he's accustomed to making.
