(Sports Network) - Former Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher has
announced his retirement from the NFL.
"After spending a lot time this spring thinking about my NFL future, I have
made the decision to retire," Urlacher said Wednesday. "Although I could
continue playing, I'm not sure I would bring a level of performance or passion
that's up to my standards. When considering this, along with the fact that I
could retire after 13-year career wearing only one jersey for such a storied
franchise, my decision became pretty clear.
"I want to thank all the people in my life that have help me along the way,"
Urlacher continued. "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 the great game, but I leave with no regrets."
