LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Former Kentucky linebacker Danny Trevathan won a Super Bowl title with the Denver Broncos last season. Now he's looking forward to a new challenge with the Chicago Bears.
After the season Trevathan left Denver for Chicago and a deal worth more than $24 million dollars. About half of the contract is guaranteed and Trevathan is eager to get started with the Bears.
"Its been a blessing." said Trevathan. "It's not easy but the team made it easy and Chicago made it easy for me. So at the same time, I'm looking forward to the challenge ahead. I always like a good challenge and I always like for people to think that I can't do something or something's going to be too hard for me and that's when I rise."
The bears finished 6-10 last season and 5-11 the year before. Trevathan said he knows the fans in Chicago are hungry.
"I am hungry with them." said Trevathan. "I just came off a super bowl win... I know what it takes. I have some great guys around me. But it's all about spreading that attitude and having that family atmosphere and going out there and work together for one goal."
Trevathan returned to Lexington at the beginning of the week to support the charity golf event of Wesley Woodyard, One Putt at a Time.
