They signed him for a 1yr - 2 mill with a chance to double depending on play.

Looks like he just did not believe the bears were a contender.

Were going to get good play outta him

I think Olin has a career year here, seems to me he was sick of being under a garbage QB and the only competent lineman on his team. Surrounding him with pro-bowl talent in Brees, Carl Nicks and Jahri Evans in addition to having a shot at a ring will bring out the slumbering beast in Kreutz.

Gotta remember that a lot of these one year guys (Kreutz, Franklin) are at positions where we are developing young talent. This season will be strong, then our young guys will have to step up next year, which may be a down year, but will make us much more of a dynasty team, with young talent taking over from HOF bound vets. (Sharper --> Jenkins for instance)

No because their contracts will come off the books... and if they perform well and we continue to win, there's a chance we could just re-sign them. If not, we'll just go after the next wave of free agents to fill their role.

If he ranked 33rd out of 34 qualifying centers last year he needs to step it up this year. The past is the past.
