05:00 PM ET 05.24 | After the 2012 season, the writing was on the wall for (Brian) Urlacher and there was some noise circulating that the Bears weren't too motivated in bringing back a player who was the centerpiece of their defense since he was drafted ninth overall back in 2000. Reports and rumors surfaced that the Dallas Cowboys were interested in Urlacher's services, but Stephen Jones shot the idea down back in March. "Any time you're talking about a Hall of Fame player in Urlacher, you don't ever dismiss Hall of Famers, in my book," Jones said Monday at the NFL owners meetings in Phoenix. "It would be difficult, he obviously plays what Sean Lee plays, to move everything around for a year. Doesn't really make a lot of sense. But at the same time, you don't ever rule anything out." With Sean Lee in the middle, it really didn't make a lot of sense for Dallas to financially pursue the services of the aging linebacker.

You'd think he'd want to be with a good team.

Report: Urlacher was interested in Cowboys

Thank God he decided to retire, being a Cowboy player/fan nowadays is agonizing.
