Olin Kreutz not calling it a career

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Former St. Louis School star Olin Kreutz may not be retiring after all.

His agent, Mark Bartelstein said Tuesday that Kreutz wants to continue his career after parting ways with the Chicago Bears over the weekend.

The Bears offered Kreutz a one year deal valued at approximately $4 million, almost one million dollars less than he wanted.

Talks between the two sides broke off, with the Bears acting quickly in signing a replacement for Kreutz, former Seattle Seahawks center Chris Spencer.

At 34, Kreutz is still a valuable commodity for any NFL team, given his considerable skills.  Kreutz is a six-time Pro Bowler and has been named All-Pro four different times.  He was a third round pick of the Bears in 1998.
