Buccaneers | Pursuing Brian Urlacher? (Wed Sep 17, 03:32 AM) - With an injury to LB Mason Foster, rumors have the Tampa Bay Buccaneers pursuing free agent LB Brian Urlacher (Bears). Urlacher resigned Tuesday, Sept. 16, from his Fox Sports 1 analysis job, fueling the speculation. Sources say a signing, if one happens at all, would not occur this week.

Our View: Alright Lovie, let's not get crazy here. Urlacher played most of his career with the Chicago Bears under new Bucs head coach Lovie Smith. With Foster injured, the team has a need at the linebacker position but Urlacher is not the same player he used to be. Urlacher hasn't played since 2012, and getting decent production from him would be nearly impossible. We'll see if the Bucs make a move here.
