Quote:
Former Bears cornerback Terry Cousin is returning to the team as its director of player engagement.

Cousin entered the NFL with the Bears in 1997 as an undrafted free agent from South Carolina. He spent three seasons in Chicago before playing for the Falcons (2000), Dolphins (2001), Panthers (2002-03), Giants (2004), Jaguars (2005-07) and Browns (2008).

Cousin appeared in 172 games with 68 starts in 12 NFL seasons, recording 472 tackles, 13 interceptions, 6.5 sacks, five forced fumbles and six fumble recoveries. He played in the Panthers' 32-29 loss to the Patriots in Super Bowl XXXVII on Feb. 1, 2004.

Cousin, 39, rejoins the Bears after spending the past two seasons as director of player engagement with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. In Tampa, Cousin implemented a program called Buccaneer University that helped players with education, internships, benefits and financial services.

Pretty nice move. And people still want to call the Bears front office "classless." In the past year they've retired Ditka's number, offered Chris Harris a coaching position, and now this.

Hester is now talking on Twitter about how he never wanted to leave the Bears. I get where he's coming from since he played here for many years and had so much success, but to be publicly saying that stuff after signing with a new team....I can't imagine the Falcons are happy with him saying that.

Well by saying "The things I did in Chicago would probably never happen again . . ." I think he has accepted that he will never return to that same form every again.

^^^^ I was wondering what he meant by that comment...that could be taken a few ways. I've always wondered how Hester got into a huge university after listening to him speak.

Yeah I'm not going to really grade him on his literary proficiency, but the way I took was him saying that he would never replicate the success he once had here (hence why the FO wanted to move on), but still wanted to retire a Bear.


EDIT: And to take it a step further, and this is all speculative, maybe his heart really isn't going to be in the game this year. I wouldn't completely rule out a Kreutz-esque mid TC retirement. It would be dumb for him to do so I think, but not totally surprising.

Obviously, the U was not going to grade him on his literary proficiency, either! Makes on wonder what the criteria was that got him admitted....Sports? Other?

I think he's saying he'll never replicate what he accomplished in Chicago. Ad a fan I like seeing how much the Beloved means/meant to him.

Then again, he did say two years ago he wasn't sure he wanted to play anymore so who knows.
