    This rumor is so good I had to post it.
    ____________________________________________________________________-

    The Cowboys are interested in linebacker Brian Urlacher. Unless they aren’t.

    Unless they are.

    Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Urlacher is a viable option for the Cowboys, who are trying to replace middle linebacker Sean Lee. Whether Urlacher progresses from viable option to member of the team depends on whether the younger players pegged to replace Lee step up, including Anthony Hitchens and DeVonte Holloman.

    Urlacher, who retired last year in lieu of taking only $2 million to stay with the Bears, has stayed in shape and has some interest in joining the Cowboys. For now, many dominoes must fall before Urlacher is chasing around the likes of LeSean McCoy and RGIII. But it’s not as much of a long shot as it’s being portrayed.

    And that could be the best way for the Cowboys to get the youngsters to step up. If they don’t, a potential Hall of Fame could be coming to town to show them how it’s done.

    Report: Jermichael Finley to Undergo Medical Tests on Wednesday.

    The Packers are used to seeing Julius Peppers twice a year.

    Their first workout with him on their side had them excited about the possibility of 16.

    Teammates were impressed by Peppers’ first OTA workout, and are already thinking about what he’s capable of.

    “You obviously notice his athletic ability right off the bat,” linebacker A.J. Hawk said, via Lori Nickel of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. “He’s 34 and runs like he’s 18. If ever there was a genetic freak put on this planet, it is Julius. He’s just a specimen. I have a ton of respect for how he works, too. What a great teammate just from Day 1. He’s a quiet guy that already knows what he is doing, so it is fun to be around a guy like him.

    “Him being in Chicago all these years, and getting to see him up close and personal two games a year, is always something I’ve been impressed by. Now, to have him on our side, to see how good of a guy he is, how good of a teammate he is, he’s already lived up to — and exceeded — my expectations.”

    Peppers has created a high bar for himself because of his natural gifts. While it’s easy for someone so large and so graceful to appear effortless and thus draw criticism, he’s compiled 118.5 sacks and ranks in the top 20 all-time in that category.

    They’ve all come from a 4-3 defensive end spot with the Bears and Panthers, and the Packers are using him as a hybrid outside linebacker (hence the unfamiliar number 56).

    But so far, they’re excited about what they’ve seen, and what he might add as a pass-rusher opposite Clay Matthews.

    The more information you have about your enemy , the better you can kill your enemy.
    _____________________________________________________________________________

    Green Bay Packers: With quarterback Aaron Rodgers still at the helm of Green Bay’s offense, the unit will be fine. The Packers, instead, have to solve their defense, which ranked 25th in the league last season after ceding 372.2 yards per game. Two additions will help: first-round safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix can blossom into the roaming leader of the secondary, and defensive end Julius Peppers can help in rushing the passer. Both will need to get used to their new playbooks in the offseason.

    Chicago Bears: For once in Chicago, the problem is the defense, not the offense. Specifically, the Bears were atrocious in stopping the run, allowing a league-worst 161.4 yards per game. The franchise addressed the issue in the NFL draft, using its second- and third-round picks on defensive tackles Ego Ferguson and Will Sutton. Chicago also added veteran defensive end Jared Allen. Minicamp will be essential in getting its new pieces acclimated to Mel Tucker’s 4-3 scheme.

    Detroit Lions: Jim Caldwell begins his first season as the Lions’ head coach, and has a number of issues to solve. The continued development of quarterback Matt Stafford will be a central focus, but the key issue is fixing the secondary. To help do that, Teryl Austin enters his first season as the Lions’ defensive coordinator, but spent the last three years as the Baltimore Ravens’ secondary coach. He brings expertise in the position and will focus on improving last year’s 23rd-ranked passing defense, which allowed 246.9 yards per game.

    Minnesota Vikings: Despite a number of holes, quarterback looms as the biggest for the Vikings. Although the franchise traded back into the first round to draft Teddy Bridgewater, the team is in no hurry to rush him to start. It appears that there will be a three-way competition between Bridgewater, Matt Cassel and Christian Ponder. If one quarterback starts to excel in minicamp, it could shape the rest of the offseason.

    Ripped from another BEARS board ...

    Angelo kept his job for as long as he did by signing FAs and trades, but how many of the current starters has he drafted between 2002 and 2011 that are still on the team?

    Defense: Tillman (2003), Briggs (2003), Conte (2011), Paea (2011)

    Offense: Forte (2008)

    FIVE!

    Radio City out as draft host, Chicago or L.A. are possible

    Posted by Michael David Smith on June 5, 2014, 5:57 PM EDT

    The 2015 NFL draft will not be at Radio City Music Hall. It might be in Chicago or Los Angeles.

    The NFL sent letters today to potential draft hosts in Chicago, Los Angeles and New York City today to request more information about their specific plans, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. But the host for next year will not be Radio City, which is booked. If the draft stays in New York, it will be at Madison Square Garden.

    Although the final date of the draft has not been set, the league has asked its potential hosts about availability for either April 22-25 or April 29-May 2. April 22 and April 29 are Wednesdays, indicating that the NFL is considering starting the draft earlier in the week and turning it into a four-day event. In another indication that the league is trying to make the draft a bigger event, one of the requirements the league has laid down for the potential hosts is that they need to have space for a fan festival in a space adjacent to the actual draft.

    The NFL is expected to determine the exact date and location of the draft by the end of the summer.

    UPDATE 6:48 p.m. ET: NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy confirms via Twitter that the league is focusing on Chicago, L.A., and New York for the 2015 draft, but that “other cities remain in the mix.”

    LB/DE Julius PeppersGREEN BAY–Julius Peppers worked at both the left and right outside linebackers positions in practice at Ray Nitschke Field on Thursday. Peppers, signed in free agency in March, wore No. 56 and began practice as Nick Perry’s apparent replacement at left outside linebacker.

    Perry was present at practice but did not participate, nor did starting right outside linebacker Clay Matthews. Mike Neal was Matthews’ apparent replacement.

    Practice was open to the public and fans enjoyed a warm and sunny day. They cheered nearly every catch, most enthusiastically a reception by rookie tight end Colt Lyerla.

    Micah Hyde was at safety along with Morgan Burnett in the No. 1 defensive backfield. Bryan Bulaga, who missed all of last season due to a knee injury, lined up at right tackle and David Bakhtiari remained at left tackle. Bakhtiari replaced Bulaga at left tackle last season. JC Tretter, a fourth-round draft pick in 2013, was the center.
