Singletary missed just two games in his 12 NFL seasons, all with the Bears and was selected as the NFL Man of the Year in 1990 for his combined excellence and performance on and off the field. Considered by coordinator Buddy Ryan to be one of the great students of the game and the Bears' defense, Singletary was briefly considered by Dick Jauron for an assistant's position with the Bears but was not hired and eventually became defensive coordinator of the San Francisco 49ers. « Show less
