"Big news out of the Chicago Bears world on Tuesday. Bears' tight end Zach Miller has decided to announce his retirement. Miller suffered a gruesome injury back in October of 2017 which almost forced him to get his leg amputated. Since then he's been rehabbing at Halas Hall hoping to eventually find his way back one day to the NFL. The tight end made the announcement on Instagram:"To the city of Chicago, my beloved bears fans and NFL fans everywhere... The time has come to move on from playing the game of football. It has been an incredible journey for myself and my entire family and we can't thank you enough for your continued support. I would love more than anything to step on Soldier Field one last time but I physically cannot give the game and our fans what they deserve. It's difficult to find words to express my love and gratitude to every single person that has cheered my name, picked me up and stood strong with me throughout my time in this league. I am forever grateful.
To the McCaskey Family and the entire Bears organization, THANK YOU for changing my life! To my Family, teammates and coaches, I value nothing more than the friendships and love I have gained from this game! I love you all!

And to everyone else chasing a dream... never stop, never settle! • -Z"

Miller without a doubt will be a Bear for life!
