Retirement has been good to Brian Urlacher, and he's got a new head of hair to prove it.
The former Bears linebacker went on WGN Tuesday morning to show off his brown locks (and also tossing in a promotional plug, but hey).

WGN's Robin Baumgarten tweeted a picture with Urlacher that shows off the new hair a little closer. It looks good, but it's also incredibly odd to see No. 54 with anything but a bald head.

As far as we can tell, it's the first time Urlacher has had any real semblance of hair since 2006, but even that was more a buzz/crew cut than the locks he's sporting now.
Good for Brian. Weird for us.
UPDATE: CSN Bears analyst and former teammate of Urlacher, Lance Briggs, got in on the fun.
What's all the fuss about??? https://t.co/JqQAO3RF8t pic.twitter.com/teLqz69gXK
