Report: Urlacher will attend camp despite contract dispute
Brian Urlacher plans to attend the Bears' mandatory three-day minicamp starting Friday, the Chicago Tribune reported Thursday evening.
Urlacher had missed voluntary offseason activities to this point. He previously asked for more money than the Bears offered in a one-year contract extension.
Urlacher signed a nine-year, $57 million deal in 2003 that included up to $19 million in bonuses.
Urlacher has been in Arizona rehabbing from minor neck surgery and spending time with his children, the Tribune reported. If he had skipped minicamp, he would have been fined the maximum of $8,165, as per the collective bargaining agreement.
Although he plans to practice with the team, Urlacher will likely continue to look for a new deal. Defensive tackle Tommie Harris and return special Devin Hester also are seeking more money.
Urlacher led the Bears in tackles with 123 last season. He also had five interceptions and five sacks.
