Pros, cons on 49ers considering Olin Kreutz

By Mike Sando

Lots going on, including the San Francisco 49ers' search for a starting center.

Adding to an earlier item, San Francisco has interest in longtime Chicago Bears center Olin Kreutz, according to Michael C. Wright of ESPNChicago.com.
The more I try to find reasons against adding Kreutz, the more I feel like I'm stretching.

The 49ers could do a lot worse. They've drafted a couple of interior offensive linemen and hope to groom them for roles in the future. They've already invested heavily in their line through the draft. I like the idea of bringing in an established veteran center to help Harbaugh establish a mindset for younger players to follow.
