Linebacker Brian Urlachers agents provided the Bears with contract parameters for a new deal Thursday morning, according to a league source.
The key, of course, is how much the Bears are willing to pay Urlacher, an eight-time Pro Bowl selection who has played his entire career with the team.
Last season, Urlacher was paid $8 million and hell have to take a steep pay cut to continue with the Bears.
Urlacher has made it clear that he doesnt want to play anywhere else.
A league executive said one option would be to pay Urlacher a base salary perhaps $2.5 million then allow him to earn more money based on how many games he plays.
