It would be hard to see Brian Urlacher in another uniform other than the Chicago Bears. However, the All-Pro linebacker isn’t sure if Chicago will resign him. If not, Urlacher says he would be sad, but not crushed. “I do not think that’s going to happen,” Urlacher told FOX 32 News in Chicago. “But, if it does, I have had a really good and long career so I would be sad, but I would not be crushed.” A sound like Urlacher is ready to move on, anytime an athlete states they are ready to move on, it’s not good news. Ulacher, who will be 35, is realistic that the Bears could look to get younger at the middle linebacker position. Urlacher suffered a hamstring injury that is estimated to keep him out for 3 weeks. Given the recent surge by the Green Bay Packers and the recent struggles of the Bears, it is not unrealistic that Chicago could miss the playoffs. Urlacher has established himself as one of the NFL's most productive defensive players. After winning the NFL Rookie of the Year Award in 2000, he has been elected to eight Pro Bowls, and won the NFL Defensive Player of the Year award in 2005. The Chicago Bears selected Urlacher in the first round, as the draft's ninth overall pick.
