The Urlacher to Denver speculation began before you had time to finish dinner

Where should Brian Urlacher play next? Eight possibilities

Denver Broncos: They also appear to be on the verge of a title and offer a natural surface for Urlacher’s creaky knee. Denver just signed Stewart Bradley to compete for a job inside, but Urlacher is a better option. He could also lend a new voice of experience now that fellow old-timer Keith Brooking, who started 14 games for the Broncos in 2012, is gone.

Expect this hype to grow for another day before Urlacher signs with someone else. Urlacher had sought $11.5 million over two years. He felt the Bears' offer of a one-year deal worth $2 million was a slap in the face.

And herein lies the problem. Even if we assume the Broncos did have interest in Urlacher, whatever they offered would be perceived as a kick to the groin, which hurts way worse than any facial smack.

I’m glad we had this talk.  Now, vaya con Dios, Brah.
