I don't know...

I think he saw he was having a bad game and not what he has been. Simply way over his head this year... HOW THE HELL DOES A CENTER GET A FALSE START PENALTY, I mean really?!?! You hike the ball to start the dang play.

So if he took offense to a coach giving him crap about it then so be it but as long as he has been I can't see a coach really giving it to him... you know when to respect a guy come on.

I think they were in a position to cut someone with Ivory coming back and honestly it makes good sense. NO WAY he makes the team next year, he is expendable by my calculations.

So to avoid being cut they let him move on on his own accord. He saves face and goes out a little better than being cut his last NFL season.

When you go through the grind of football for 13 years, especially in the trenches, you are bound to lose some of your desire to play. I know a lot of people are going to argue that he's make a lot of money to have fun or whatever, and quitting isn't being a team player or whatever, but really sometimes doing whats best for the team is doing whats best for yourself. Now someone that is more vibrant and willing can step in.

Sorry, you dont just bail like he did. He could of sat on that bench and at least have given tips to the younger players. He quit, left the team 7 weeks into the season. YOU DONT DO THAT. Shows a lot about his character the way he is bailing on us. So, get the hell out then Olin, good way to end your career buddy...not.

Eh, if he sat on the bench all season, we'd still have to pay him. That cap room can be used for someone else. Staying on the team while remaining benched would be more detrimental to the team than helpful.I don't really see the problem with what he did.

Rather him leave now with no fire then try to linger till the end of the season and potentially get Drew injured. I'm sure it is a hard thing to do for him after a great career, but at least he was honest. Good luck Olin, hope you get whatever your issue is straight.
