In an interview with “In Depth with Graham Bensiger” that will air on Yahoo Sports, Urlacher said that after his retirement this spring, “I did not hear from Jay, of all the guys I played with.”

Urlacher said that he and Cutler never had a rumored altercation reported by some and that he felt he had stood up for Cutler in the media more than most of Cutler’s teammates.

For his part, Cutler acknowledged that he hadn’t called, emailed or text’ed.
