Could the Bears Use Urlacher as Trade Bait?

Tommie Harris’ play didn’t match his contract either, but Bears GM Jerry Angelo identified the defensive tackle as one of the players he expects to have a bounce-back season in 2009. That list also includes Brian Urlacher, who Angelo said “still has enough to make a Pro Bowl.” You want to believe Angelo meant every kind, eyebrow-raising word about the Bears franchise player who clearly appears to be in decline. But a cynic might wonder if Angelo’s public remark about Urlacher also served a bigger purpose in trying to increase the linebacker’s trade value. Dangling Urlacher as trade bait would take the Bears down an unusual, unpredictable off-season path.
