09:38 PM ET 03.24 | The chance to play for the team he grew up rooting for has Tom Zbikowski ecstatic. ???I???ve never been happier,??? he said. Zbikowski's family and friends couldn???t be happier, either. He???s been hearing from virtually everyone he knows from his hometown area since it was announced he agreed to terms with the Chicago Bears on Saturday. ???A lot of people are excited for me to come back here and see me play,??? the safety said. ???But I told them they all are on their own for tickets.??? The Steelers also were interested in signing Zbikowski, but he said once the Bears showed interest, he wanted to come home. Zbikowski is from Buffalo Grove and attended Notre Dame.

Forget him. I just saw a headline that said Ozzie Smith signed Elvis Dumervil.

I've loved this dude ever since his Notre Dame days. I like that he does MMA on the side, too.

Not sure that Zbikowski is ever gonna be a great NFL player but he's definitely one tough son of a gun, and I find that to be an admirable quality.

Don't care much for the Bears but I'll continue to root for this dude.

Love is a strong word. Too strong for the context, on second thought.
