Olin Kreutz leaves a gaping hole in the New Orleans Saints defensive line after walking out on his team, as he claims he's lost his passion for playing football. His agent, Mark Bartelstein, spoke on Kreutz's decision.
"He loves the games. He has to love the game. He just hasn't been feeling it. He called me on Monday and Tuesday and said, 'I don't know if I can keep on doing this."
Bartelstein also revealed that coach Sean Payton tried to talk Kreutz out of his decision.
"Went in and talked to (coach) Sean Payton and (general manager) Mickey Loomis and expressed it to them. They tried to talk him out of it. They wanted him to stay and he actually thought he was going to give it another whirl and called yesterday and said, 'I just know, it's not in my heart. I'm not going to keep collecting a check if I know deep inside me I can't bring what I need to bring to play every week.'"
Kreutz will be placed on the left-team list and will eventually be released from the team.
