Brian Urlacher may retire after next season
Tonight, Chicago Bears’ linebacker, Brian Urlacher, was interviewed on Fox Chicago. Urlacher was asked by Fox sports guy, Lou Canellis, about his contract situation few times. Canellis asked “You’re going into the final year of your contract. Now that you’ve been able to step away from the game, have you thought about next season being your last with the Bears?” Urlacher responded “I dont think thats going to happen, you know I think something will happen, or I’ll retire or something will get done before that has to happen. I don’t really know exactly whats going to go on.” Canellis responded “You would retire? If the Bears didn’t offer you an extention?” To that Brian said, “If I don’t play good, if I don’t play good, you never know with injuries and stuff like that, if I dont feel like I’m producing the way I want to, theres no reason to keep trying to playing.”
Urlacher is a competitor among competitors. He’ll play until the Bears kick him out of Halas Hall and Soldier Field. The NFL should be extremely happy if Brian Urlacher returns next year for his 13th season as a middle linebacker for the Chicago Bears. For the sake of everyone in Chicago, I hope Brian sticks around for a few more years, and then some. He’s still playing at an incredibly high level and is the key to getting the Bears back to the Super Bowl.
