Bears GM has no regrets over handling of Urlacher
Absolutely not, Emery said, via Chris Boden of CSNChicago.com. It was a very straight-forward process. We had a very honest and open exchange between Brians representatives. There was no lack of clarity. No surprises. Brians been a great player, a Hall of Fame player. Hes done great things for the Chicago Bears.
Weve committed more resources to Brian than any Bear in the history of the organization. We were willing to commit more. In the end, we just couldnt agree to what that amount was, and its no more than that.
Of course, Emery was willing to commit at a far lower level this time through, offering him a take-it-or-leave-it $1.5 million offer, which Urlacher not only left, but took as an insult.
