'It's because of the . . . commitment from the fans and this community, the energy that you all have just given us over the years to help us get to this championship moment -- filling the stands, providing the passion, the love -- all of that I factored in,' Mourning said. 'I factored in all of those things, and I have decided that I will play another year in Miami,' " writes Patrick Dorsey of the SUN-SENTINEL.
