A year after leaving Patriots for Bears, Akiem Hicks has no regrets

When he became a free agent last year, defensive lineman Akiem Hicks had an offer to stay in New England. But he had a better offer to go to Chicago, and thats the one he took.

As it turned out, he played for a three-win team in Chicago, whereas he would have a Super Bowl ring if he had stayed in New England. So does he regret it?

Not in the slightest, he said. Because one of the reasons I came here was ... a chance to rebuild. I had a chance to be a part of something growing. Being a prominent player [on the Patriots], I enjoyed that aspect of it. I think its going to benefit me going forward.

Hicks did acknowledge, however, that he thinks playing on a bad team cost him a trip to the Pro Bowl.
