LB Brian Urlacher, the former Bears’ defensive stalwart for the ast 13 seasons, has announced his retirement. The eight-time Pro Bowler, who will turn 35 this weekend, announced his intentions via a statement on whosay.com.
Urlacher was once thought to be a possibility for the Giants this season, but the Blue did not seem to have a serious interest in him.
They were not alone. There was a very shallow market for Urlacher after the Bears decided not to meet his contract demands earlier this year during the free-agent period.
