Former Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher has been enjoying his retirement so far by playing a lot of golf.
“Yeah, I’m playing a lot of golf,” Urlacher said, via the Chicago Tribune. “The first thing on my mind when I wake up isn’t working out anymore. So that’s a good thing. Doesn’t make me mad.’’
Urlacher was asked if he might want to come back and play football again.
“No. No,” Urlacher said. “My agent , when I told him … I just want to retire. He went through every scenario, what if so-and-so calls? What if they offer me $10 million? I don’t want to play. I don’t have a desire to play. I’m not in shape. I haven’t been doing football stuff.
“I’m sure I’ll miss it when it’s time to put the pads on and stuff. But I won’t miss how my body feels when I’m done.’’
Urlacher did admit he thought about coaching, but then realized he doesn’t want to.
“I don’t think I would be a good coach,’’ he said. “First of all, I don’t want to spend the time coaching.

But the Bears did however sign former New Orleans Saint Sedrick...
Matt Forte was unexpectedly under-utilized in the Chicago Bears offense in 2012, finishing with less yards from scrimmage than at any other point in his career. His overall impact was minimal in a year that he was expected to make perhaps his biggest impact in a Bears uniform. That was just another reason why it was time to make a change on offense and with the coaching staff...

Admit it sports fans. In the back of your minds your wondering and just a little bit curious is former Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher is going to come back. After all, he's just 35--old by NFL standards but not necessarily over the hill.
