All Pro Ex-Bear, Kreutz Leaving New Orleans Saints--Report
Written by 

 Saints center Olin Kreutz said on Friday through his agent, that's he's leaving the team because he doesn't feel like he can compete with the same level of passion on a daily basis anymore.

"He decided, 'If I can't bring the same passion every day to work, I'm not gonna just sit here and collect a  paycheck,'" said Mark Bartelstein, his agent. "That's the way he is. Olin's a little different than most guys. People say all the time that it's not about the money. That's really how it is with him. It never has been."
