Urlacher gets new contract

Bears bet new money on Urlacher
Brian Urlacher got the money he wanted; he still has to earn it on the field and off

Nobody should interpret the Bears and Brian Urlacher finally agreeing to a new contract Monday as a career achievement award for the middle linebacker. This is not an $18 million gold watch or very expensive thank-you card.

This is the Bears putting new money where their mouth is.

Through all the hand-wringing in the last year over an arthritic back and surgically repaired neck, the Bears maintained that Urlacher would be fine by training camp. They insisted that Urlacher's body wasn't breaking down and his level of play hadn't suffered.

Now they have backed up those bold conclusions with a $6 million signing bonus and $1 million a year raise over the next four seasons for a 30-year-old player starting his ninth season.

I bet Urlacher's ex-wife will soon be filing another lawsuit against him to try to get some of that $6 million.
The cake is a lie.
