All has been quiet on the Brian Urlacher front in the months since the Bears announced that he wouldn’t be back, but he may have a couple of teams interested in his services.

The Chicago Sun-Times reported on Tuesday that Urlacher had interest from both the Vikings and the Broncos, and that he was leaning toward the Vikings.

The Sun-Times report came from gossip columnist Michael Sneed, who isn’t known for breaking NFL news, but we had previously heard that there was some contact between Urlacher and the Vikings, so seeing Urlacher in purple wouldn’t be a huge surprise.

At age 34, Urlacher isn’t the player he once was, but we’d expect him to catch on somewhere before the start of training camp.
