  • Outside Linebackers still have to be fast. Urlacher is not that anymore.

  • I think it's time for Urlacher to hang up his cleats and join Lewis in retirement. Hate to see these guys go out like this. He was one of the best for a long time. I guess he doesn't want to go softly into that good night.

  • He just wants to go out on his terms just like all of us.

    He'll land somewhere. Hell, Lofa stayed out a year and he landed a gig in Atlanta... but only to get re-injured and never to see the field during the regular season.

    Baltimore might be interested. They definitely have LB-er needs.

    BTW, this should be moved to NFL Nation.

  • Lots of respect for Urlacher, but I'd rather roll with Smith/Morgan than bring in a slower, older guy who might have great instincts, but not the speed to match them any longer. He's not an upgrade, and signing him would just be throwing money at a name.

    That's definitely what these guys would do!

    Urlacher mighta ran a 4.5 back in the day, but I can almost guarantee that he'd run a 5 flat now. He makes Manti Te'o look like Chris Johnson. Hey, while we're at it, how bout we trade Beast Mode for Chris Johnson? Sell high!

    Horrific idea. He's never played the WILL, He's always been a MIKE.
    He's riddled with injuries and I'd suspect Malcolmn Smith would play at a higher level. Afterall he's has several years of experience in this system (going back to college) Plus he's way cheaper.

  • urlacher is best going to a team that lacks leadership and can use his veteran savvy.

    That is not the Hawks. They have defensive leaders that are younger and less of an injury risk, you don't want to ruin that chemistry by bringing in another big name but spent player.

  • Of course this is the same guy that whined to Chi-Town TV and sports channels about the Seahawks being a dirty play team? That was just the next morning. He actually ran a play down from behind in that game, so still shows flashes of speed.

    But he also got injured that game and I'm not sure he played anymore that season.

    Just say no to Brian Urlacher. Anyway he would never show his face here after that game.

    We've drafted a LB, DB, DL and OL in every year under the Carroll regime.

    It makes sense, as those positions tend to be affected by depth and attrition more than most. It doesn't seem like it's a coincidence.

  • Too old, and now too slow, no thanks!

    Besides that, while he was one of the best, time waits for nobody and his time is past.

    We have a quality young MLB and don't need one that is old slow and expensive. Further we don't need the media circus Urlacher would bring with him. Let him go somewhere where the team actually need a 1 or maybe 2 year guy with seriously declining skills who is now injury prone.

    Younger, bigger, faster, stronger, something good is being built here and we don't need another team's tired castoff to put us over the top and lead us to the championship long sought and so far denied.

    There are very few old players that can help this team, Urlacher isn't one of them. New young blood is the true direction the team needs to take.
    Until we develop a pass rush that will cause opposing teams to be forced to scheme to defend it we will never be able to completely take the final step. That was done and the final step was taken.

  • The Seahawks are past the time when they need to sign big name FAs to sell tickets and fill seats. Nor do they lack in veteran leadership.

    The product is on the field, the goal is winning games. IMHO BU would not contribute to that in a positive way.

  • Bears barely wanted to give him $2M. Any team would be foolish to pay him $2.5M. I agree with those who say this team doesn't need to be in the mode of grabbing older veterans to establish a foundation. If this was the Seahawks under Pete and John the first year, maybe but not at the price listed by the ever zealous OP poster.

    There is a place for a player like Urlacher but his knees are a big problem. This was known prior to last season and the Bears tried to manage it and he still was unable to last. What makes the OP think he can last an entire season now?
