Bears' veteran would like to retire as a Bear
|Brian Urlacher fully expects to be a free agent for the first time in his NFL career after the 2012 season. But he says he's at least a few years away from calling it quits. Urlacher, who says he'll be ready for training camp after missing organized team activities with a knee injury, told ESPNChicago on Wednesday that he expects to play two to three more years. Just don't expect it to come with the Chicago Bears' biggest rivals. Asked if he'd ever play for the Green Bay Packers, Urlacher flatly said no. But what if they offered two years and $20 million? "That's a good deal," Urlacher said to laughter. (NFL.com)|
FF Today's Take: The 34-year-old is still one of the Bears most feared defensive players but his fantasy value for IDP leagues is beginning to decline. Though he intercepted three passes last season and even returned one for a touchdown, his solo tackles, assisted tackles, sacks and forced fumbles were all down from the previous season.
