    Olin Kreutz to the Vikings?!

    The Chicago Bears just parted ways with ex-Pro Bowl Center Olin Kreutz.

    Could he be persuaded to join the Purple & Gold, and supplant our less than #300 pound, less than average Centers?

    Re: Olin Kreutz to the Vikings?!

    Very misleading thread title dude. He is actually close to retirement. I'd love to have him, but I would say it's a 1% chance at best.

    Sorry Rick! Keep up the good work.

    Re: Olin Kreutz to the Vikings?!

    He is a very strong leader and would bring toughness but he is also a 13-14 year vet and the reason he was cut was he wanted 4.5 and not 4.0 Million a year and I am not sure we can make that number work. And at that age should we? I mean, if he was a QB then age and cost know no boundaries but for other positions that seems steep.

    I thought it would be a coup for the Vikings to get Olin Kreutz if he is still healthy, and if he still has any "gas in the tank" (no reference to the previous post on this thread). For as many years as Kreutz, and Pat Williams did battle, and seeing that we could get an Intra-Division Rival player...why not?

    Re: Olin Kreutz to the Vikings?!

    Can't understand why we arent in the market for a center..

    Shaun O'Hara got cut from the Giants, Casey Rabach is also a free agent from Washington and then Kreutz, who has experience from the division and is a proven veteran who have been pretty good for many years..

    Sullivan has proved that he is not a top-tier center and the offensive linie is having a hard time to gel with him snapping the football, getting a skilled veteran in there like Birk would help a lot..

    Re: Olin Kreutz to the Vikings?!

    Please no Kreutz. Dude is a walking penalty, is old and washed up. I'd honestly rather stick with Sully than go with Kreutz. (and if you know how I feel about Sully, that's saying quite a bit).

    Kreutz WAS a great player. Remember the Birk days, the NFC Probowl team was always Birk/Kreutz alternating as starter/reserve every other year.

    There is little chance that we would bring him in. By the way, Olin is listed at 292, so you'd gain no weight (if that's more important).
    Sully is 301 lbs., Cooper is 291, Fusco is 306.

    If you want an old guy, maybe Rabach. If you believe in miracles (as he is the highest rated Center left out there), maybe Jonathan Goodwin, UFA from the Saints. (318 lbs., 32 years old)

    If you're looking for a younger guy who may be more talented than Sully or Cooper, then look to Samson Satele (UFA, Raiders).

    Not much else available that is proven talent.

    We may be relegated to hoping Sully makes a giant leap forward :unsure: , or that Fusco turns out to be a real find.
    None
