PLAYERS: Brian Urlacher
TEAMS: Chicago Bears
Former Broncos general manager Ted Sundquist believes the market for free agent linebacker Brian Urlacher will begin to pick up in June.  He believes this because teams will start cutting more veterans after Junes 1st. When a player with multiple years remaining on his contract is released after June 1, only the prorated bonus money for that upcoming season counts against that year’s salary cap in the form of dead money. The rest of the remaining prorated bonus money accelerates onto the following year’s salary cap. Sundquist thinks Urlacher, who turns 35 later this month, will be a viable option for teams that free up additional cap space before training camps begin in July. “I think once we get past that June 1 cut where a lot of teams are going to let some guys go because of cap reasons and there is going to be some street free agents out there, clubs are going to be focusing again on where they can find good, veteran talent that I can bring in at a bargain price,” Sundquist said...

  • The Bears need go sign get him right away for several reasons. He would still be a top five tackler on this team this year, look at all the second chances this staff is giving out to new players. I don't think we will have the mental edge needed to compete this year without Urlacher on this team, staff is still learning. Also we watched the bears play on their heels, i'm saying in this scheme you will see him and everyone excel, cover two is just the base D but Bears must move away from it at times to stop drives. Bring back Brian if you do nothing else, We need his mental edge..

Bears RB Matt Forte has a decent Chicago mansion with a killer basement (PICS)

via Realtor.com Chicago Bears running back Matt Forte deserved to treat himself to something nice for having to put up with quarterback Jay Cutler on a regular basis.  Forte’s disdain for Mr. Cavallari (I may or may not be making that up) forced him to buy a house that’s roughly a 45 minute drive to Soldier Field.  Of course, in Chicago’s traffic, that might means he’s...

2013 NFL Draft Team Grades: Chicago Bears

First Round: Kyle Long, OT/G, Oregon Another pick I'm shocked at. I think Long is better than Pugh, but still don't think he should be a first round selection. I'm shocked the Bears passed on Eiffert and Ogletree, who are much better players and better values. Long will most likely be put at guard for Chicago, with Bushrod and Webb on the ends. However, he will...

You might have read the title and was shocked, but you really shouldn’t be. If you have any knowledge of the 90′s Cowboys you should be aware that athletes have “side house” for their groupies, jumpoffs and mistresses.
