Without a doubt, recently retired 13-year NFL veteran Brian Urlacher will go down as one of the greatest Chicago Bears in the history of a franchise loaded with legends.

From Bronco Nagurski to Dick Butkus to Mike Singletary, Urlacher carried the torch of superstar Bears linebackers into the 21st century, and he will be sorely missed in the middle for the Monsters of the Midway.

Thus, on Friday, the Chicago Tribune posted this full-page tribute to the man who played every single season in one jersey.

For a man who gave his entire professional life to beating himself up for the city and for the franchise, it was a classy gesture, and one Chicago fans should enjoy.
