Brothers Bear get another shot
Urlacher will workout with team over next 2 weeks
Urlacher will workout with team over next 2 weeks

Posted Jun 5, 2003


The same day the Bears inked Brian Urlacher to a historic deal the team didn’t forget his brother Casey, who signed a three-year deal Wednesday.

The contract Casey signed is similar to what the Bears agreed to with the rest of their undrafted free agents. He will partake in the team’s June workouts with the hope of getting an invite to training camp, which opens July 25 in Bourbonnais.

Despite playing linebacker for the majority of his college career at Lake Forest (Division III-A), Casey is trying to make the transition to fullback. Daimon Shelton and Stanley Pritchett are clearly going to be the starter and backup at the position, but both will be thirty years old by the end of the season.

The chances of Casey making the team are slim; however, if he can show the coaching staff that he’s making progress over the next two weeks then a trip to training camp could earn him a spot on the practice squad.

At this point, talk of Casey getting a chance because he’s Brian’s brother should subside. With Brian tied up for nine years, Casey will have to make the team based solely on his own merit.
