The gap between Urlacher and the Bears ... Urlacher was looking for $3.5M-$4M on a 1-year deal; Bears offered about $2M for 2013.

Beat me to it Billy. Glad its finally over. Ill miss seeing Brian on the field opening day. One of my favorite players of all time. So glad I got to watch him be one of the most dominate players at his position.

Wow, really thought he was coming back for another year. Don't want him to sign for the Vikes, can't imagine him playing at Soldier Field against us. Best of luck to him though, Bears legend and future Hall of Famer.

Really disappointing from an emotional standpoint, would've loved to have him play out his career here.

From a football standpoint, there are better options moving forward. Briggs can be a leader of this defense. Makes me wonder if Ogletree will be a more prominent name in the 1st round.

Will be very weird to not see big 54 in the middle of that defense. He had a great run and was a fantastic player for us. It's sad to see him go.

I could see him winding up in Jacksonville with Babich.

What are the better options? Our LB cupboard is bare.

We will likely draft a couple of LBs now but who expects them to start next year?

Wasn't meaning to say we have people ready to step in, just saying there are other, more desirable directions we could head with the MLB spot.

Agree that we need to sign a LB pronto. Maybe Daryl Smith or Justin Durant, both of whom played for Tucker in JAX.

What do you really say to this? It's a shame he never got a ring but perhaps we'll see him in Canton someday.
