I think its about money as far as the team is concerned.

for the player What im understanding is maybe its pride. look at it from his POV- You watch a young kid come into your job and everyone looks at you because hes doin your job for way less money. If you were told you were gonna get paid less at a job you were good at, not only that be demoted, and then everyone reads about it in the paper, Its pretty hard to work for that company and really hold your head up. Your work may be declining but when you do something for so long and you love it you dont wanna believe it. That would be tough mentally thinking about it like that. Now another company offered him less money but hes knows his boss, its still somewhat close to home. and its a fresh start, and he knows if one of the other 2 fail or cant work he can do the job. Its easier to go somewhere totally new and be a cheap backup than stay with people that demoted you & have to look in the eye everyday.

Exactly.. he will play a reduced roll in Dallas also (which it was stated he didn't want to do in Houston)..Didn't Dallas give a 10 million dollar signing bonus to a CB this offseason already? (was it Howard?)

Kinda weird situation ....

I thought Glenn was spinning it a bit when he said he was worried about Faggins development and playing time if he stayed, but it looks like that may be it. He certainy could have had the same deal/dollars to play here as the nickle and I doubt very much that the FO didn't want him to stay in that role. The other possiblity is that he just thinks so little of P-Buc that he didn't want to be around him. I doubt that's it, but Arron is a pretty straight shooter and maybe it bothered him about the Neon-Dion type of personality.

Article about Glenn and Pats

Maybe Glenn wasn't too sought after as a free agent.

"The Patriots did not draft a cornerback last weekend, and though they were contacted by former Houston Texan Aaron Glenn, they elected to go with Scott. The Houston Chronicle reported yesterday that Glenn has agreed to a deal with Dallas."

This is not a slam, Glenn was one of my favorites.

Shelton Quarles is a real man. Glen and Sharper were just in denial about their worth until they saw what other teams were willing to pay. It is a shame that they can't come to grips with that fact before we have to release them.

I really don't think it has a thing to do with them being in denial. This is a business and they just decided to go work somewhere else. The team made a business decision as well as did Jamie and Aaron. It happens.

All I can say it that is a big pay cut, 3 million a season. Think I would have saton the bench and got water for anyone who wanted it for that kind of money.
