PLAYERS: Brian Urlacher
TEAMS: Chicago Bears
30
There continue to be many questions surrounding Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher, mostly surrounding whether or not the veteran will return with the team next season. Yesterday, new head coach Marc Trestman declined to commit when he was asked about Urlacher’s future with the Bears, as reported by Brad Briggs of The Chicago Tribune. "Objectively, I've watched the man play for a lot of years," Trestman said. "He exemplifies what being a Chicago Bear is all about. We all know that. When I step out of this room, we'll begin to study and I'll talk to (general manager Phil Emery) about where personnel fits and how it works." Urlacher finished the year with 68 tackles, two forced fumbles, one interception and no sacks. He missed four games due to injury. The former All-Pro linebacker will turn 35 before the start of the 2013 season, and the veteran missed the end of the regular season due to injury. At that point Urlacher acknowledged that he could have played his final game with the Bears.
