Brian Urlacher is looking for a new NFL franchise for the first time in his career after the Chicago Bears and him agreed to part ways. There were rumors initially that the Minnesota Vikings could be interested in Urlacher, provided he lower his asking price. And now it seems he might want to lower his price if he is afforded the opportunity to chase that Vince Lombardi Trophy.
“I’m an old fart, so I want to go in there and win,” Urlacher told The Dan Patrick Show.
”Maybe nobody wants me,” Urlacher said. ”But we’re gonna find out.”
Urlacher speculated that no one has contacted him because no one thought the Bears would let him go. He has said that aside from the Vikings, his agent has been in contact with the Arizona Cardinals and Dallas Cowboys. None of those really come across as teams destined for the Super Bowl.
While he is familiar with the 4-3 he isn’t locked into that formation.
”I think I could learn a 3-4,” Urlacher said.
He also politely turned down the notion that he could go to Baltimore and fill in for the retired Ray Lewis with a “no thanks.”
But Urlacher thinks the Bears might have low-balled him with their 1 year $2 million offer intentionally, to save face publicly.
”I really don’t think they wanted me back,” Urlacher said.
