"My agent ... went through every scenario, what if so-and-so calls? What if they offer me $10 million?" Urlacher said Friday, via the Chicago Tribune. "I don't want to play. I don't have a desire to play. I'm not in shape. I haven't been doing football stuff. I'm sure I'll miss it when it's time to put the pads on and stuff. But I won't miss how my body feels when I'm done."
Although many high-profile players turn to a career in television or coaching, Urlacher is content to spend his days golfing -- at least for now.
Fox Sports told the Tribune it would entertain the idea of hiring Urlacher as an analyst, but the interest isn't mutual.
"I don't think I would be very good on TV broadcasting games," Urlacher said. "'He's running left, he's running right, 28 has the ball.' I don't know. We'll see. I've got a lot of time to think about it."
Urlacher also doesn't believe he would be a good coach because the long hours hold no appeal for him.
"I feel bad for them," Urlacher explained. "During the season, they work 90 hours a week. I don't want to do that."
No longer itching to play, Urlacher won't be taking the Brett Favre route of resurfacing after training camp for one last hurrah. That should ensure a trip to Canton once he's eligible for the Pro Football Hall of Fame voting in five years.
