Should The Cowboys Have Given Brian Urlacher One Last Shot?


It was widely reported this week that former Chicago Bear linebacker Brian Urlacher has decided to hang up his cleats. Although the eight-time Pro Bowler and current free agent felt like he still had some gas left in the tank, in an interview with the Chicago Tribune, Urlacher claimed he would have only signed with one NFL team other than the Bears.

“If I could have picked a spot, it would have been Dallas…(The Cowboys) run our defense. They took our (defensive) coordinator. That would have been ideal. But they have two really good young linebackers.” (via dallascowboys.com)

Executive vice president Stephen Jones said the Cowboys flirted with the idea of bringing in Urlacher, but with current studs Sean Lee and Bruce Carter already on the roster, it just didn’t make much sense. Still, the Cowboys did sign linebackers Ernie Sims and Justin Durant this off-season. Other then the $2 million price tag, why not give the five-time All-Pro one last shot? Especially when you consider the injury history to both Lee and Carter.

    Yes they should have. This team needs all the leadership we can get.

    With the injury history of Carter and Lee, adding Urlacher is a no brainer!

    The team should not carry and pay Urlacher to be a back up in case Lee gets hurt. Urlacher doesn’t want to be a back up either.
