I don't believe this is correct.... He's making $3.3 mil this season with Philly... Who was offering him more money? Penguins offered him $2 mil:

PITTSBURGH (AP)—The Penguins on Friday withdrew their one-year contract offer to forward Jaromir Jagr.

The team made the announcement moments before the free-agency signing period began at noon. The offer was for $2 million

“We made what we thought was a very fair contract offer to Jaromir on Tuesday, based on his stated interest of returning to the Penguins,” general manager Ray Shero said. “We made our best offer from the start, given our salary-cap structure, in an attempt to facilitate a deal. But now, after several days, with an extended time frame for making a decision, and additional teams getting involved, we have decided to move in a different direction.
Jagr dragging his feet making a decision and sending mixed signals, and a team deciding they need to move on because of the delay and mixed signals? Sound familiar Jagr chases $$$$.... Many would tell you there's nothing wrong with that, that's his decision to make, not my business.... But let's not believe for a minute that he makes his decisions based on personal loyalty to any organization....
