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.
