New defensive staff could mean Brian Urlacher is done in Chicago

According to, now that the Chicago Bears have an entirely new coaching staff, there’s a good chance veteran linebacker Brian Urlacher will not be back next season.

Urlacher had a pretty good season with 68 tackles, 2 forced fumbles and 1 interception.  But it’s obvious he isn’t the same player and his career will soon be over.

The Bears are going to need to reload on defense either through the draft to fill some potential gaps.

    I think letting Brian Urlacher go would be a big mistake. Especially
    after losing Rod Marinelli, Urlacher deserves the same respect the
    Ravens have given Ray Lewis. He is still a better player than alot
    of the younger ones, plus he is a great leader and motivater, I cannot understand why they would want to change anything on
    defense the way they play, they won’t do any better defensive wise. Wake up Chicago, you don’t want to lose Urlacher to another
