08:45 PM ET 05.14 | When the Chicago Bears didn't retain veteran linebacker Brian Urlacher a few months ago, not many people thought he'd be out of work for long. But here we sit in May and the Bears legend remains a free agent, however that might not last much longer. According to the Chicago Tribune, Urlacher is deciding between the Denver Broncos and Minnesota Vikings and appears to be leaning toward signing with the Vikings. Should Urlacher sign with the Vikings, it would jive with reports around his release that suggested Minnesota was keeping a watchful eye on Urlacher and may not let him sign with another team. Minnesota failed to draft a top linebacker prospect in the draft this year, which was something many people thought they'd end up doing. So adding Urlacher would not only jive with earlier reports, it would fill a massive need in the middle of the Vikings' linebacking corps.

Everything I've read, except for this and a gossip columnist from Chicago, says the Vikes won't sign him. Next.

Sadly it might be the end of the road for Brian.

At least the Vikes organization has come out and stated they aren't interested. If nothing else, that should give sportswriters the chance to find another useless topic to wear out.

Want or Need? I'll take "None of the above" for $1000 Alex.
