OK, so I missed the BIG news yesterday. Not feeling well and hit the sack early. Completely missed the news that Brian Urlacher agreed to, and the Bears gave into Urlacher by providing, a contract extension.
The extension provides Urlacher with $18 million in new money over the original contract and an immediate $6 million bonus.
So now, we can put this all behind us and just focus on the Chris Williams signing. (Oh, don’t forget Devin Hester, for whom an extension will be important to obtain this season).
I can’t help being a little facetious about Urlacher. Will it be enough now? If he has a big year in 2008, will he demand another renegotiation/extension? I wish I were entirely kidding.
