Nothing imminent for Urlacher, who wants to play for a contender
More than two weeks ago, the Bears slammed the door in the face of the most recent face of their defense. Still, he’s currently no closer to joining a new team than he was when the Bears cut him loose.
Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Urlacher won’t imminently be signing with a new team. He’s talking with a few teams, all of which are contenders. If anything happens, it likely won’t happen for a while.
And with the Bears opening the door a crack for Urlacher, Urlacher currently isn’t ready to push. Though it’s not an impossibility that he’ll return to Chicago, his primary goal will be to join a potential winner -- especially since the money isn’t going to be close to what he had been receiving.
