Report: “Not much” interest in Urlacher from Cowboys

Nearly as soon as we passed along the report of Ed Werder of ESPN that the Cowboys were considering Brian Urlacher, the reactions began suggesting that it was extremely unlike to happen.

The latest of those dispatches comes from Werder himself, who said a team source told him they had “not much” interest in the former Bears linebacker.

(As a side note, we’ve documented ESPN-on-ESPN crime here before, but this might be the first time with the plaintiff and the defense are the same person.)

The reality is, names such as Urlacher and Vilma sound good, but are better in theory than reality. There’s a reason no one signed Urlacher a year ago, and the Cowboys are admitting that they’re looking for a two-down platoon player.

As tempting as the name might be, it appears unlikely that it will happen.

Unless Werder comes back later today and says it will.

    Should have known. Ed Werder is Dallas’ version of Jello. Let’s nail something to the wall to see if it sticks.

    Sign Vilma so Shady McCoy can break his ankles

    Neither side is going to think this is a good idea now as Dallas takes a look at their young prospects. But later on it may start looking better.

    The Bears were desperately in need of an LB who knew what he was doing out there after Briggs got hurt. Didn’t bring Urlacher back. If that that isn’t a telltale sign that he is forever a retired player, nothing is.

    Translation: Urlacher and the Cowboys management team are currently working out the terms of the contract.

    Oh, Ed Werder…has anyone made more on reporting literally nothing but blind thoughts that are never true than this guy? Anyone?

    Werder is a tool. He knows nothing about what goes on with the Cowboys. Just wants to get his name out there.

    He has done this before yet you still recycle his articles…

    I wouldn’t be surprised if vilma and urlacher turned down cowboys because they didn’t want to play for a perennial loser cant blame them there better off in Jacksonville ,Cleveland or maybe even redskins if there lucky
