(WSCR) If you want to get a good look at the type of person and player Brian Urlacher really was, look no further than former Bears general manager Jerry Angelo.
Though Angelo didn’t draft Urlacher, he joined the Bears following No. 54’s rookie season.
In the wake of Urlacher’s official retirement, Angelo joined The Boers and Bernstein Show to talk about the kind of person the Bears middle linebacker really was.
“He was the quintessential team player,” Angelo said. “That’s what I loved about him personally. He was about the team. Money never spoiled him. Regardless of what success other players had around him, he was as happy for the emergence of Lance Briggs and whoever else we had on our team. Sometimes, players can get a little envious of one another. You never saw that with Brian Urlacher. He couldn’t be any more happier for his teammates. When we brought Julius Peppers in, he was Julius’ biggest fan. It just says so much about the person, and we all know what a great player he was.
