Not a chance do the Bills go after Urlacher. It's wasted space even talking about it.

Ya no way I would want him for $5 Mil a year. $3 Mil per year would be the most

I agree there is value in having a vet like BU on the Bills, but 5MM is insanity.

He did say that he was willing to go down from $5.5 Mil as he knows you never get what you ask for.

Just saying...

Great leader but not sure he will last the season. We should have checked out the other Bears LB, Roach,  but too late for that.

What can it hurt to contact him and start a discussion? The worst that can happen is he says no and you move forward as originally planned.

Any reason to believe a prototype Tampa 2 player would be a great fit?

I agree. It would be worth it based on his leadership alone. We have no LB's with that much experience.

I would offer a 1 year $4 Mil contract to see what he says

Sad thing tho is he probably will get his $5mil a year contract from another team

According to Adam Schefter, Urlacher wanted a 2-year deal worth a total of $7M, which is $3.5 per year

We'll see what he gets...my $$ is on Houston (he'd be great next to Cushing), Denver, or NYG

I don't picture Urlacher going to any team using 3-4 sets, when he played his whole career in a tampa 2. Especially a guy at the end of his career. He doesn't seem to fit Pettine's system at all. If we want an old washed up MLB, we might as well just sign Bart Scott.

It wouldn't surprise me if he retires, I don't think any team will pay him close to 5M a year, and I wouldn't be surprised if there is little interest in him as a starter baring injury.

The patriots are sometimes interested in this type of player though, and he'd probably be interested due to the winning potential alone.

They just played the interview on espn- not quite verbatim but very close in time and content - his words:

"We wanted 2 years 11m, they offered 1 year 2m.... I'm not putting my body through this for that money.... Atleast not for the bears"

Didnt like that quote one bit

Oh wow...I didn't see that.  I was apparently mistaken, as it was Ed Werder that reported the $3.5M/year number, but that was for one year:

Ed Werder
Brian Urlacher was willing to return to Bears for 1-year, $3.5 million with $500K incentives. Bears offered half that.

Thanks for clarifying.

LINO

Linebacker in Name Only at this point in his career.

Just like Ray Lewis, sure he's out there on the field but you've got to strategize to mask his diminished skills.

I'd love Urlacher for 2-3 years at 2 or 3 million. Sign me up
