Brian Urlacher wanted to finish his career with the Chicago Bears. He didn’t believe he was asking management for too much money when the team decided to cut ties with him Wednesday.
Urlacher’s agent originally approached the Bears seeking a two-year deal worth $11.5 million.
The thought was to aim high initially and reach a middle ground through negotiations.
The Bears apparently wouldn’t budge on their offer of a one-year contract worth a maximum value of $2 million.
Chicago Bears fans react to the news of Brian Urlacher leaving.
