Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher is ending his Hall of Fame career after 13 NFL seasons.

Urlacher, who turns 35 years old at the end of May, gracefully announced his retirement on Wednesday. He will leave behind a decorated career in Chicago that included eight Pro Bowls, five All-Pro selections, a Defensive Player of the Year award (2005) and an inclusion on the NFL's All-Decade team of the 2000s. 

He'll also walk away as the leading tackler in Bears franchise history. 

A clear candidate to be a first ballot Hall of Famer in 2018, Urlacher finishes his NFL career as one of the best linebackers to ever play the position. 

But where does he rank all-time? The following list will help place Urlacher among the NFL's historical greats at the linebacker position.
