Bears Defense Not Going to Change

LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) - The

Chicago Bears' defense will likely have a similar look next season whether

Brian Urlacher is part of it or not.

New coach Marc Trestman and defensive

coordinator Mel Tucker say the Bears will stick with a 4-3 set and won't change

much schematically with a defense that ranked among the league's best under

Lovie Smith.

The big question is whether Urlacher will

be a part of it.

The eight-time Pro Bowl linebacker has an

expiring contract and missed the last four games with a hamstring injury after

being slowed by a knee problem.

Trestman says it would be

"premature" to discuss Urlacher's future. He says they spoke on the

phone for about 30 to 40 minutes about the team, not specifically his situation.
