The Chicago Bears and linebacker Brian Urlacher are engaged
in ongoing discussions aimed at extending the veteran’s playing career, according
to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk.
Lou Canellis of FOX 32 is reporting that the discussions are
far enough along that Urlacher’s representation made an offer to the Bears yesterday
morning and they’re now awaiting a response or counteroffer.
Urlacher and the Bears are both hoping for a return, and the
linebacker has said he’d be willing to take a pay cut in order to remain in
Chicago. While he’s not the player he once was, as he’s in obvious physical
decline, Urlacher still brings a lot to the table when it comes to experience
It’s hard to argue that Urlacher would be more valuable to
another team than he is to the Bears, and it appears that a deal between the
sides will eventually get done.
