Bears DE Akiem Hicks motivated after Pro Bowl snub to take next step

Bears DE Akiem Hicks motivated after Pro Bowl snub to take next step

They cant accuse defensive end Akiem Hicks of being a ring-chaser.

On the contrary, Hicks turned down an opportunity to stay with the eventual Super Bowl champion Patriots last season to sign with the Bears, who won three games and are in full rebuilding mode.

I was happy for them, Hicks said of the Patriots. You want to be in that position, but you can never be mad at someone elses success. They were on Instagram at their [championship] ring party. It makes you envious; it makes you want it more.

Seeing any team succeed at the highest level should motivate you if youre a competitor. Im not a Golden State fan " Laker Nation all day " but watching them succeed, it makes you say: Man, I want that feeling. I want to be in the locker room with my guys, throwing champagne in the air and spitting it out, like Kevin Durant did.

If Hicks ever wins the Super Bowl with the Bears, hell be able to celebrate proudly as someone who helped take a team from the bottom to the top of the mountain instead of a jumping on the fastest-moving train.

Hicks had no regrets about signing with the Bears before their difficult 3-13 season in 2016. And he still has no regrets after seeing his former Patriots teammates win the Super Bowl without him.
