The Bears they were planning to move on without him.I don’t know Urlacher, but I could understand why he would want to explain his side of the story to whomever asked him.
Soon after graduating from Ball State in 1969, Letterman began his career as a radio talk show host on WNTS (AM) and on Indianapolis television station WLWI (which changed its call sign to WTHR in 1976) as an anchor and weatherman.
Expecting him to turn the other cheek is a little unreasonable.
He’s never endured anything like this at the NFL level.
Forget on-field defeats and the like — he’s coping with losing part of his identity. Perhaps Urlacher would be willing to take the same terms to play middle linebacker a different team.
I can also understand why he may not have completely ruled out returning to Chicago, as NFL Network’s Albert Breer reported, even with the franchise moving to make such a return pretty difficult. He indicated as much in an interview with Sirius XM on Wednesday.
