Brian Urlacher likely won’t get signed any time soon

According to, free agent linebacker Brian Urlacher isn’t close to signing with anyone right now, even though a few teams are interested.

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.

If Urlacher does get signed, it likely won’t happen until training camp.  I can see a team signing him after a key player goes down in the preseason.
