(CBS) With training camp just a few months away, veteran linebacker Brian Urlacher is still out of work.
After rejecting the Bears offer of a one-year deal worth a reported $1.6 million, Urlacher might be close to signing with the division rival Vikings.
According to the Sun-Times’ Michael Sneed, a marriage between the 34-year-old linebacker and the Vikings is in the works.
“It’s getting close to happening, but Brian is leaning toward heading to Minnesota and is talking a one to two year contract,” a source close to Urlacher told Sneed.
Sneed also reports Urlacher has had discussions with the Broncos.
Urlacher spent 13 seasons in Chicago, earning eight Pro Bowl nominations.
