It's not that I don't see the argument, and I don't know anything about Urlacher personally, so maybe he's a great teacher/mentor. Maybe he's not.
But who does he take playing time from?? Roster spots are worth their weight in gold, and I doubt BU would play STeams.
I just don't think you take up a roster spot for a mentor. If he's more than that. . .if he's still got game. . .then that's another story.
We need our coaches to assign playing time based on something other than player salary.
I wonder what would Urlacher's salary be if we do get him
If he would be willing to come for the min then I would see it as great but that would be dependent on him still being able to contribute play wise to the team. Lets be real, we dont have much going on at LB and I dont think Connor is the answer. We can't do any worse than we are now.
I'll take Urlacher for the right price and no more than two years. Better than Connors (is that his name?) and better than Herz.
But I'll take Ogletree over all of them.
Mentoring doesn't make sense when you already have Armstead as a special assistant to the team. And, as asked before, we need players who would you give up for him?
