 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."
