Re: NFL 2013 Off-Season Discussion
Apparently the Bears' final offer was one year, $2 million, take it or leave it. Urlacher was hoping for at least an option for a second year.
According to the Tribune, his agent's initial offer was $11.5m over two years with the goal of negotiating it down to a number everyone could agree on. Split the difference between $2m and $5.75m and it's plainly obvious that they weren't going to agree to terms. Urlacher's saying he would have stayed for as low as $3m which I find very difficult to swallow given the initial offer.
Hating the anti-intellectual movement since before it was actually a movement.
