Urlacher, 34, left the Bears after the team low-balled him with a $1.6 million contract renewal offer.
He has been talking to both the Minnesota Vikings and the Denver Broncos, but a Sun-Times source said that right now, Urlacher is leaning toward taking a one- to two-year contract with the Vikings.
NFL.com reports that the Vikings do not plan to give Urlacher an offer, however, and instead plan to use players already on the roster to fill the middle linebacker spot.
