SHARE Olin Kreutz’s agent offers insight on three-day window

Whenever a new CBA is finalized, clubs are expected to get a three-day window to try and re-sign their own players.

The highest-profile Bears free agent is longtime center Olin Kreutz, and he’ll gladly re-sign — for the right deal.

“Olin’s spent his whole career with the Bears, and he’s turned down a lot of money to stay with the Bears. He loves being a Bear,” agent Mark Bartelstein said. “But, the reality is, there was an opportunity before March 1, and [the Bears] chose not to do it, which I understand, because they didn’t know what the system would be.

“But if they want to aggressively come and give him a fair deal for who he is – as a player, and a leader and a rock to the organization – then, knowing Olin, he’s going to want to get it done,” Bartelstein said of the three-day window. “But, he wants to feel good about it. He wants it to be equitable. If not, then those three days will go by fast, and he’ll be on the market.”
