Urlacher is now under contract until 2012 with a big raise.

At least that means no holdout.

It's not a big raise at all, they just structured it like that so he could save some face.

They basically gave him 6 million. The last 8 million on the 2012 contract he'll never see, and he probably won't see the other few years worth of raises either.

6 million to shut him up and keep him happy? Whatever. He'll just end up using it in another paternaty case anyway.

I'm not being negative at all, he would have been a Bear for life either way. He's probably got 4 good years left in the NFL tops, and was already under contract for such. They just gave him a little money to be quiet.

Well, I'd prefer a happy Urlacher to a disgruntled one....And I think we can take the extra million per year salary wise
