Seeing players stay to finish their education is an awesome thing. It speaks volumes about the coaching staff and the school. Both Decker and Jones have a lot to lose by not going to the league. However, they realize that an education can take them much further than a short career (in terms of their life span relatively) in the NFL.
I'll never begrudge a guy for leaving school early to make big money in the NFL, but stories like this make me feel better.
