But we knew going into it that it was a possibility that it might be this
McCaskey continued on to say that the “market” and Chicago’s
front office members will determine if Urlacher ultimately returns to the
Bears. He said the team continues to “go through” the free agency process and
will see what happens when it comes to Urlacher.

The Bears lost Lance Louis in free agency and to cushion the loss Phil Emery went out and signed former New York Jets guard Matt Slauson. Slauson is a fourth year guard who hit the open market and didn't generate much interest prior to the Bears going out and signing him.
