“We were unable to reach an agreement with Brian and both sides have decided to move forward,” general manager Phil Emery said in a release. “Brian has been an elite player in our league for over a decade. He showed great leadership and helped develop a winning culture over his time with the Bears. We appreciate all he has given our team, on and off the field. Brian will always be welcome as a member of the Bears.”
