(WSCR) Free agent defensive end Israel Idonije is making his intentions completely clear: He only wants to play two or three more years and he wants to do it in Chicago.
“I grew up here in Chicago,” Idonije told 670 The Score’s Laurence Holmes. “I was 21 years old when I first came to this fine city. At 21, I didn’t know up from down. To grow up to be a man here and mature in the city of Chicago and to be mentored by leaders in our city, it would be tough to spend two years, three years in another city and learning, kind of rebuilding your network somewhere else.
“Even though ultimately I’ll be back in Chicago when I retire from the game — Chicago is going to be home — my priority is to stay here and enjoy these next few years in Chicago with my friends, my family and with my organization.”
