A rumor that Chicago Bears general manager Jerry Angelo would retire soon jumped into the mainstream conversation during Sunday morning's Gameday Morning show on NFL Network.  Sunday evening, Angelo attempted to quash those rumors, according to Michael Wright of ESPNChicago.com.

"I don't know where that came from," Angelo said, according to Wright. "I've heard a lot of things worse. I think when you get to a point in your career, the thought's always going to come up. I've been in the league a long time. I enjoy what I do very much and I work with a great organization, great people. I still want to make a run at this."

According to Wright, Angelo was more entertained than upset by the rumors, and described them as "more amusing than anything." Angelo has been the Bears GM since 2001, and was responsible for the 2009 blockbuster trade that brought quarterback Jay Cutler to Chicago.
