32nd Round Chrismon isn't leaning one way or the other

Among the handful of players yet to sign, 32nd Round pick Austin Chrismon has no idea what he'll do:

"I'd say it's the most important decision I've had to make, by far, because it affects my future. It's very exciting, but at the same time it's very stressful. I have friends constantly asking me questions, and I just have to tell them I don't know yet. I have those who tell me it's all about getting your education, and I have those who tell me it's a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity I have to take. But I'm not leaning either way right now. I'm right in the middle."

But make no mistake, it's about the Green:

"We're just trying to get as much out of them as possible before making a decision. For now, I'm just taking it one day at a time and focusing on the next time I throw. I probably have a better chance of signing and getting the money I want now than in the future. And if they go to a worldwide draft, it's possible I wouldn't get drafted (in '13). I'm just looking at this as a chance to show what I can really do. I have to sell myself, I guess. It all depends on how well I can do."
