Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher knows his window for winning a championship is slowly closing up, But he says he is fully healthy from a left knee injury sustained in January and could continue to play a while longer.

Urlacher, 34, who enters his 13th season making $7.5 million in base salary, says he can play 2-3 more years and plans to enter free agency after this upcoming season.

"My back feels great, my neck feels good, my muscles aren't pulling anymore so that's good," Urlacher said, according to ESPNChicago.com. "Everything feels pretty good right now. I always say (I want to keep playing) two to three more years. It all depends on how I play on the field, because if I don't play good enough nobody is going to want me."
Urlacher had 102 tackles and three interceptions last season.
