Is anyone else entertaining the idea of signing Urlacher to a 1 year deal?
He may have lost a step or two but is better than anything we have in the middle this upcoming season.
The leadership that he would bring paired with his good coverage skills and experience are what we need. I believe that he would take less money to play for a real contender after getting snubbed by the classless Bears.
Imagine our linebacking core: Woodyard, Urlacher, VON... with reliable backups in Bradley, Irving and Trevathan.
Now I'm not sure we could pull off signing both Freeney/Abraham along with Urlacher because of our cap space but if we could manage to stay under the cap I believe that this is the best case scenario.
I'm not ruling this out of the possibilities because I feel that Urlacher will only want to play if the team is competing for a ring and Denver is on that short list... and we may be the only team on that short list who is not solid at middle linebacker.
I'm a Chicago native studying at Illinois State, so I've been hearing the bears fans complain about this all day.
What do you guys think?
