Niners In Pursuit of Olin Kreutz
With the Niners very thin at the center spot with the departure of David Baas and the season ending injury to Eric Heitmann, the 49ers are trying to lure Bears center Olin Kreutz to the Bay Area.
According to Michael Wright of ESPNChicago An NFL source said that the Niners sent Kreutz a contract proposal Wednesday night. Although the Bears and the center have talked numbers as well, the source said that Chicago’s offer doesn’t reflect how important he is to the team.
Kreutz is expected to make a decision and sign with one of these teams on Friday.
