Urlacher’s retirement came with reasons

brian-urlacherIt has been a big year for the NFL as two Hall of Fame Potential linemen retire. Both Brian Urlacher and Ray Lewis had lustrous careers dedicated to one team. They brought passion to the game, passion we only see in those who truly love the game. Hearing about Urlacher retiring should not come to a shock to people. Its not likely that you see a linebacker play past his mid 30’s. The main reason behind it all was the money and his health. Urlacher knew that he was coming to the end of his playing career and that, at his age, the risk of injury was high. He was offered a $2 million one year deal without guaranteed money. He took it as a slap to the face but,  who wouldn’t if you were him. His only other option was to see if he could have gotten more money from other teams but he knew he wanted to retire as a Bear. It was either take the small amount of money or retire with some dignity. For him the decision was simple and we say good bye to another NFL legend.
