Locker made a good decision. I don't think he's all about the money, obviously.
I like Jake as a player, and as many have said this year, he sure does remind me quite a bit of a young Steve Young.
A good friend of mine is a Husky alum and is always on top of all things Husky. He says Locker made the decision strictly because he did not feel he was ready to run a pro-set offense. He recognized the need to absorb more of Sarkisian if he was to have a successful pro career.
As you suggest, he ISN'T about the money, according to the friend. He just wants to be a good player in the NFL and who counts money past $10MILLION?
Sounds like a breath of fresh air in an environment that is too often driven by money.
