Brian Urlacher said what we already know about Jay Cutler

Former Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher pretty much told everyone what they already know Wednesday, when he said former teammate Jay Cutler fits the category of “elite" in salary only.

Tom Brady fondly recalls making Brian Urlacher his dance partner

FOXBORO — Tom Brady has never been mistaken for Walter Payton, Barry Sanders or Johnny Manziel.
