Brian Urlacher Has Retired From The NFL

USA Sports - November 12, 2007

I guess some may say they saw this coming but it’s never real until it actually happens.  Urlacher was one of the best middle linebackers in the game for a long time and it’s a shame to see him go.  He could probably still do it but as he said on the Dan Patrick Show today, his body is telling him it’s over.  Congrats on a great career Brian.  He’ll make his way to Canton and the NFL Hall of Fame soon.  For now he joins a host of great Bears linebackers who have put the helmet and shoulder pads away.
