NFL Trade Rumors:
Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk reports that a source with knowledge of the situation has informed him that the Chicago Bears are currently “engaged in ongoing discussions” with free agent LB Brian Urlacher regarding a contract extension.
Florio believes the Cowboys would be “wise‘ to pursue Urlacher if he were to become available given that they’ll be installing 4-3 defensive scheme this year.

The Chicago Bears and reps for Brian Urlacher met at the NFL Combine in Indianapolis two weeks ago, and have been continuing to talk.
