You guys better not become strangers now that I've been dealt to another team! Seriously! Do you understand me!? <Haha!>
It's never fun leaving a team and fans who have been so good to you for so long, but the nature of the business often involves playing for who you're told to play for - so you do what you gotta do. And while I'm gonna miss all of you to death, I'm fortunate to be going to a team - the St. Louis Rams - that I know I'm gonna enjoy playing for as much as I enjoyed playing for the Bears. Really, my entire situation has worked itself out perfectly: I made a ton of great memories in Chicago, and now I get to make some more in St. Louis.
Like I said above... You guys better stay in touch! I plan on having some more contests where winners will win some Bears stuff, AAAAAND I ain't done messin' up Chris Harris on the bowling lanes, so you'll have to keep checking in to see how all that unfolds (That dude is goin' down!).
Before you check out my video message to ya, here's a reminder of where I can be found on the net...
I love you guys. And keep BEARIN' DOWN!
