LAKE FOREST, Ill. -- All-Pro linebacker Brian Urlacher has agreed to a new, nine-year deal that will keep him with the Chicago Bears through the 2011 season.


Terms of the deal were not immediately available.

Urlacher, the ninth overall pick in the 2000 draft, has 527 career tackles. He's led the Bears in stops in each of his first three seasons, averaging 175 a year.

With 214 tackles last season, he set a franchise record, shattering the previous mark of 190 set by Hall of Famer Dick Butkus in 1972. He won rookie of the year honors in 2000.

In addition to being Chicago's top defensive player, Urlacher has quickly become a fan favorite. He's earned Pro Bowl honors each season and was the top defensive vote-getter by fans last year. His jersey was the top seller in the NFL last season.

Hey look, the Bears made a good move. I figured they'd trade Urlacher for Akili Smith.

I wish I could see through the all-consuming cynicism that this off-season has caused me to celebrate this move. I'll give them credit, they at least made sure not to screw up the best thing they've had since the day Walter Payton hung up his jersey. But unless he's going to take over once Kordell bombs out, I'm not sure how much it's going to help things. So yay for Urlacher staying, now get him some damn help!



and maybe I should open up my sensitive side/but really, the sensitive side sucks./I've been there./You can only imagine the kinds of sweaters they make you wear.

NWA:TNA - I'm sure something happened, but I was at pub quiz. Oh well.

I love Urlacher in Madden. He's my MLB and I play the 46 and blitz him all the freakin' time.

Full story here (sports.yahoo.com) Gee, the man hired to fill the new position is from the same state as US Senator Arlen Specter, the man who was making the big stink in Congress about "spy gate". What an amazing coincidence!
