The NFL Free Agency is in full swing, and there are still questions as to where the Chicago Bears’ 8-time pro bowl linebacker Brian Urlacher will end up. Urlacher has recently rejected a one-year, $2 million dollar proposal from the Bears. It was reported that Urlacher was hoping for a one-year contract worth between $3.5 million and $4 million. The limited free agency market for linebackers certainly isn't helping Urlacher either, as there are younger players such as Karlos Dansby and Elvis Dumervil who could possibly be more productive. As for the teams that are interested in Urlacher, it has come down to the Minnesota Vikings and the Dallas Cowboys, which is certainly not what Urlacher was hoping for. Both teams are continuing to lose interest in the 34-year-old, as the Cowboys already have a premier linebacker in Sean Lee, and Minnesota is not willing to spend big money on Urlacher.
This situation definitely does not favor Urlacher, and there are still question marks surrounding the linebacker. Where do you think the he will end up?
