    They would just trade him.

    I would say two. Bradie James and Connor may have been "arrival challenged" but they weren't washed up former stars.

    Brooking and Thomas are Hall of Famers. James and Connor aren't in their class though.

    Keith Brooking is a hall of famer? Do explain.

    They may not be HOFers, but Thomas and Brooking were two of the best in their day and were in a totally different class from Bradie and Connor.

    Great point.

    In fact, it's the most interesting point that's been made during this entire free agency period thus far. That should tell you something about this free agency period. :D

    Agreed. I think however Urlacher is on the decline (just like Brooking was when he got here) but for right price it might work given the leadership/knowledge transfer for current LB core.

    Only on CZ would the majority opinion on bringing in one of the best Cover 2 linebackers to ever play the game as a backup be an overwhelming negative response.

    Bring him in and let him turn Sean Lee into a hall of famer in the scheme. Fine with me.

    Urlacher lost his speed

    he would ****** the progress of Lee

    the 4-3 we are implementing needs D linemen and safeties not money spent on an aging mlb.

    Spend the money on a safety, dline, oline but not on a mlb

    He'd be a backup.

    If we could get him at a vet minimum and he wouldn't interfere with the progress of any of the LBers then ok.. Otherwise it hurts more than it helps

    It is hard not to be drawn in by such an accomplished player like Brian Urlacher. In his prime every NFL team would have loved to have him. The reality is, no one knows Urlacher's abilities better than Chicago and they seem to be willing to let him go.

    Why would he come to Dallas as a back-up when he could most likely start somewhere else? He has no shot at winning a Super Bowl in Dallas. That should be his focus. Denver, Atlanta And New England make more sense with that in mind.

    Probably because those teams don't want him. And I imagine Dallas would only look at him as a candidate to start on the strong side if he's forced to settle for a vet minimum offer with incentives.
