The Vikings had been linked to free agent veteran linebacker Brian Urlacher but Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network says the Vikings are not pursuing him.  The Chicago Sun-Times indicated the Vikings and Broncos are possibilities for Urlacher but the Vikings may be content to stay with a combination of Erin Henderson, Tyrone McKenzie, Audie Cole, and rookie Michael Mautti.

Urlacher is a 34-year old 8-time Pro Bowl selection who the Chicago Bears elected not to re-sign.  Urlacher has had numerous injuries throughout his NFL playing career.
