(CBS) Reality might be hitting 34-year-old linebacker Brian Urlacher.

After nearly a week of silence around the league regarding the future Hall-of-Famer, the Cowboys finally spoke up about Urlacher, but the words weren’t really encouraging.

“He has a history with Rod (Marinelli), so we’ve gotten a good indication what that’s all about there. You’re talking about a Hall of Fame player here, an Urlacher. You don’t ever dismiss Hall of Famers in my book,” Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones told the Chicago Sun-Times. “But obviously it’d be difficult. He plays what Sean (Lee) plays and to move everything around for a year doesn’t really make a lot of sense. But at the same time you don’t ever rule it out.”

At the very least, the Cowboys seemed like a team that could give Urlacher a little leverage, given Marinelli’s move to Dallas where he is now the defensive line coach. But leverage is something the middle linebacker appears to be lacking right now.

That is good news for the Bears, who would like to bring him back at a cheap price.
