Brian Urlacher Talking to Multiple NFL Contenders; No Decision Imminent

Free agent linebacker Brian Urlacher has not been making much noise since being unemployed, but that could be because he is taking his time finding a new home and is going to wait out the process until closer to the start of the season.

According to a report from Pro Football Talk, the veteran linebacker is receiving interest from a number of contending teams, but he has no plans to make a decision anytime soon.

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Urlacher won’t imminently be signing with a new team.  He’s talking with a few teams, all of which are contenders.  If anything happens, it likely won’t happen for a while.

The Pro Football Talk report also says that the Chicago Bears have opened the door for a possible Urlacher return, but that does not seam to be in his immediate plans.

One team to watch for Urlacher would be the Baltimore Ravens who need to add a veteran presence and leader in the center of their defense after losing future Hall of Famers Ray Lewis and Ed Reed earlier in the free agency period.

    I hope they reconcile and he comes back. But not likely. Start of a new era. That meaty turkey baster will be missed in the locker room I’m sure.

    I hope the “Packers” sign him and the “Packers” kick the “Bears” ass. In fact I hope the “Bears” come in last. Brian was my favorite Bear. I live in the Chicago Burbs.
