I will find it quite interesting to see where the other 31 teams value him. The Bears had no intentions of playing him as a three-down linebacker. He was probably butt-sore that Roach landed a contract more lucrative than the Bears offered him, but "them's the breaks."

Smart move by the Bears cap wise, but it could have been handled better. Urlacher should probably just hang em up at this point. Terrific player though.

Sentimental value aside, this is the right move.

Urlacher absolutely looked broken down last year and I don't want to have my last memories of Urlacher as a Bear tarnished because he did not want to hang it up before his body breaks down completely.

I wish the man a ton of luck wherever he may go and hope he still has something left in the tank to offer to another club but his time was up in Chicago. I would have loved to have him back as a linebacker quality control coach or something but I guess Brian feels he still has something left to give.

Arrogant disrespect. Interesting. "Sunday wrestlers""?
