Olin Kreutz: Bears or bust

Olin Kreutz worked hard this offseason, he said, because he expected to be a Bear.

Finding out today that’s not going to happen, Kreutz is now seriously contemplating retirement.

“Everything is a possibility right now,” he said. “I would say I’m leaning more toward retirement.

“The easiest way to put it is, it’s always been the Bears.”

Asked if he’s too emotional to make a decision now, Kreutz said, “I’d like to walk away on my own terms.

“Maybe this is the hint I needed. I just found out that the Bears don’t want me. But I always had a feeling that my time was coming to an end. I did bust my tail this offseason, but I busted it thinking I was going to play for the Bears.”
