Brian Urlacher, the retired All-Pro Chicago Bears linebacker, has been in the sports headlines for his quotes a lot lately. This time, Urlacher is sounding a
lot bit bitter that current Bears quarterback is the only former teammate that hasn’t called Urlacher since he’s been retired.
Urlacher recently sat down with Graham Bensinger and vented about the lack of post teammate communication when Graham asked if any of the Bears have given him the cold shoulder since he left the squad.
Urlacher’s response: “I did not hear from Jay … out of all the guys I played with.” Urlacher explained … “I felt like I stood up for him a lot more than anybody else did over the past 3 or 4 years in the media … ’cause that guy takes a lot of grief.”
Uh, what? So just because Urlacher chose to stick up for a former teammate, Cutler owes him a phone call to check on him? Granted, Cutler has a reputation as a bit of a jack, but they were teammates on a professional football team, not high school besties for crying out loud.
Who knew a player as intimidating as Urlacher could turn out to be so sensitive?
