Brian Urlacher Was Insulted by the Contract Offer the Bears Made Him Recently

Brian Urlacher Was Insulted by the Contract Offer the Bears Made Him RecentlyMark J. Rebilas/USA Today Sports

Brian Urlacher's career with the Bears is officially over. Both the team and Urlacher have decided to part ways, just a short time after Chicago offered the linebacker a one-year, $2 million deal to have him return to the Windy City next season. And, Urlacher doesn't sound happy with the way things ended.

"It wasn't even an offer," he told the Chicago Tribune. "It was an ultimatum. I feel like I'm a decent player still. It was insulting, somewhat of a slap in the face."

We don't blame Urlacher for feeling that way. He's been the face of the Bears franchise for the last decade. But, at the same time, when even you describe yourself as a "decent player" at this stage in your career, you're probably not going to get a gigantic new contract. So, it's best for Urlacher to get out there and see which other teams would be interested in his services. We just hope Chicago fans aren't too upset if he ends up sticking it to the team by signing with the Packers or Vikings.
