Brian Urlacher was one of the baddest linebackers to ever play in the NFL. What made him look even meaner was his bald head. Urlacher, 37, made eight Pro Bowls and won the 2005 AP NFL Defensive Player of the Year Award under his shiny dome.
Appearing on WGN Morning News in Chicago, Urlacher surprised fans with a new head Tuesday.

The Bears legend has hair for the first time since high school. Urlacher is a spokesperson for RESTORE, a hair transplant facility. He had a procedure performed in November 2014, and four months ago, the hair finally broke through his scalp.
Urlacher mentions an anecdote about being recognized as a younger Brian Urlacher. He jokes he will receive backlash from the bald community.
The Bears community had some fun mocking Urlacher:

Urlacher proceeded to make a few more TV stops in Chicago after WGN. RESTORE released its own promo video with Urlacher:
Urlacher had 1,353 tackles in the NFL. Now he is a human infomercial.
