Bears Answer Face of Chicago’s Desires

Focus From Controversy Off The Field Shifts To Its Usual Business On The Field: The Chicago Bears and standout LB Brian Urlacher have reached an agreement to put an end to the on-going heated discussions, as they have decided to rework a contract that had four years and close to $25.5 million left, with a one-year extension headlining the negotiations. Inside the details of the improved deal, Urlacher will receive a $6 million signing bonus along with a $1 million increase in salary for each of the next four seasons. Both parties also made plans to further the contract ’till 2012, at a salary of $7.5 million. Urlacher can earn an additional $500,000 in a workout bonus in 2012.

Revised Deal = Good Business: That’s a total of around $43.5 million over the next five years, with $18 million in new money for one of the best linebackers in the NFL. The 2006 defensive player of the year is coming off a productive 2007 season in which, despite back and neck issues that required minor offseason surgery, he started all of the team’s 16 games.

    Wow,You managed to copy the other writers article on the signing! Surprisingly you didnt slam,or back stab the Bears,with your negative bashing for once.So maybe you are on track to being a true Bear fan! But time will tell.The Bears have done great again with the Kevin Jones signing.They will have spent their cap money,by the time they are done.Great job Angelo,keep it up.I am a little disappointed they gave in to Urlachers demands.Before he proved he was healthy for another year.(especially since he had 4 years left on his current deal).I would like to have seen Urlacher play this year 1st before we gave him more.To make sure he can still dominate with his injuries.As he has been paid already for what he has done to date! I cant wait for the Bears to play this year.I also have hope & faith they will win the division this year! GO BEARS! GOOD LUCK IN 2008!! YOUR TRUE FANS BELIEVE & WILL SUPPORT YOU ALWAYS!!!

    GREAT MOVE BY THE BEARS. YOU HAVE THE HEART OF THE DEFENSE AND FACE OF THE TEAM HAPPY. THE BEARS HAVE ALL THREE LINEBACKERS UNDER CONTRACT AT LEAST 4 MORE YEARS AND A SOLID DEFENSIVE LINE. BARRING INJURIES THE BEARS WILL ONE OF THE TOP D’S IN THE NFL. OFFENSE NEEDS TO CATCH UP TO THE DEFENSE AND DON’T TURN THE BALL OVER.
