Brian Urlacher To Retire A Chicago Bear
Urlacher sent out a tweet on Wednesday saying that it was an honor to play his entire career with the Bears and including a link to a longer statement announcing that he has decided to retire from professional football.
After spending a lot of time this spring thinking about my NFL future, I have made a decision to retire, Urlacher wrote. Although I could continue playing, Im not sure I would bring a level of performance or passion thats up to my standards. When considering this, along with the fact that I could retire after a 13-year career wearing only one jersey for such a storied franchise, my decision became pretty clear. I want to thank all of the people in my life that have helped me along the way. I will miss my teammates, my coaches and the great Bears fans. Im proud to say that I gave all of yo everything I had every time I took the field. I will miss this great game, but I leave it with no regrets.
