    Re: Unhappy Urlacher to skip Bears' 1st voluntary workout

    I don't know which way to fall with Urlacher sometimes.
    On the one hand I can understand wanting a pay raise since he's now lower on the team's pay for players, but on the other hand it's his own fault for signing such a long contract.
    He gave up his earlier payday for long term security, but on the other hand if Urlacher would have been playing bad the team would have demanded him cut or take reduced pay.
    Which I think is the big thing, if a team has the balls to ask for a player to take a paycut or lose his job I can understand a player asking for a pay raise if he's played well.
    Urlacher has played well and is one of the few elite players on the Bears, so with some cap room I guess I don't understand how the two couldn't come to some sort of agreement.

    It's good to see a division rival having disgruntled players. Hopefully the Bears continue with their current trend of not replacing underperformers and not paying overperformers. That is a combination I can grow to appreciate from them

    Briggs being concerned with Urlacher's finances with a possible contract holdout has also offered Brian the use of a car
