Olin Kreutz is history in Chicago. As the most tenured position player and leader on and off the field, it’s not surprising that his former teammates are reaction and venting through social media:

Jam Rock will never be the same!!! #cc @ChrisHarrisNFL
183 consecutive starts 2nd to Sweetness!!!
The only guy I know who would play with a broken bone or multiple broken bones.
@Shareair32 nothing will be the same without him, practice, meetings, lifting, away trips, etc……
Chris Harris (@ChrisHarrisNFL)
Sad day n Chicago he was the glue n locker room RT @MrWhiteSox: How do u feel about Olin being let go? How does the team feel?
All I can say is wow when it comes to Olin Kreutz …………REALLY?!?!??!?!
Olin Kreutz departure won’t sit well in the locker room for a few days #realtalk
We might have to retire that song n locker room 1 last spin tomorrow in remembrance of OG RT @spiceadams: Jam Rock will never be the same!!
In my 7 yr NFL career Olin Kreutz is the toughest football player I have EVER played with #PERIOD
