  • Bears' Urlacher Retires after 13 Seasons

    Now the Urlacher to Vikings rumors can be put to rest. Today former Bears LB Brian Urlacher announced his retirement from the NFL.

    "I want to thank all of the people in my life that have helped me along the way," Urlacher said. "I will miss my teammates, my coaches and the great Bears fans. I'm proud to say that I gave all of you everything I had every time I took the field. I will miss this great game, but I leave it with no regret."

    Urlacher was released by the Bears after last season ended, when the team couldn't come to contract terms with the probable Hall-of-Famer.

    "I made my mind up a long time ago," Urlacher said. "It wasn't like an overnight decision. But I feel great about it. It's nice to have it behind me now and go onto the next stage of my life, whatever that may be. I thought it was time.

    "I didn't want to put another jersey on for any other team. Obviously, it wasn't going to be for the Bears this year, so I thought it was the right thing to do to shut it down."

    Well, I guess we should wish Urlacher the best in whatever he does from now on. He was one of the greatest to ever play the game, but I'm certain the Vikings won't miss playing him twice this season.
