Brian Urlacher Says He Enjoying Golf, Has No Desire To Play Football


Many wondered how long it would take former Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher to come running back to the game he loves, after announcing his retirement from the NFL last month.

Urlacher admitted he was close to signing with the Cowboys, but now that he’s retired, he “has no desire to play football again’ according to the Chicago Tribune.

“My agent … went through every scenario, what if so-and-so calls? What if they offer me $10 million?” Urlacher said Friday via the Chicago Tribune. “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 admitted that Fox Sports showed some interest in him as an analyst, but the feeling isn’t mutual.

“I don’t think I would be very good on TV broadcasting games,” Urlacher said. “‘He’s running left, he’s running right, 28 has the ball.’ I don’t know. We’ll see. I’ve got a lot of time to think about it.”
