Brian Urlacher is in search of a new team after the Bears chose to part ways and not re-sign him.  Many experts figure the Minnesota Vikings would be a logical landing spot. The Vikings and Urlacher’s camp have had some initial conversations, and there seems to be mutual interest. Pro Football Talk is reporting that the interest won’t be serious until Urlacher comes down in price and salary expectation. It is assumed that the price the Bears would be interested in signing Urlacher at is similar to the offer he received from the Bears that he deemed disrespectful. The Vikings would probably be more interested in Urlacher at a one year $2 million deal, with about $500, 000 guaranteed.

How Brian Urlacher’s Departure Impacts the Chicago Bears

“Lip service.” Those are the exact words Brian Urlacher used to describe the Bears’ efforts to resign him.

In honor of Brian Urlacher leaving Chicago, here's Tom Brady juking him

Anyway, Brian Urlacher is leaving Chicago after they basically told him they...
