Where will Brian Urlacher land? Vegas says Baltimore is best bet

Former Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher has been a free agent for over a week now, with little recent movement with regard to his possible destination. However, the sports book Bovada in Las Vegas has odds on Urlacher's possible landing spot. Its best bet? Baltimore.

The Ravens come in at 23/10, just a shade better than the Giants at 5/2.

Baltimore has been making deals of late on the free-agent market, which perhaps leads bettors to believe the Ravens could make a move for Urlacher. Plus, the defense is still in need of a middle linebacker after the retirement of Baltimore-institution Ray Lewis.

But Urlacher, who will turn 35 in May, has slowed somewhat in recent years.

He appeared in just 12 games last season, compiling only 68 tackles -- his lowest career output for a season (discounting 2009, when he was lost for the year with a dislocated wrist in the opener).

Still, Urlacher is one of the most sure tacklers in the game, ranking second among active players in tackles made since 2000, Urlacher's rookie season. However, there appears to be little interest in the aging linebacker, at least as of now.

According to Bovada, other favorites to land Urlacher are the Bengals (7/2), Broncos (4/1), Vikings (6/1), Falcons (6/1), and Raiders (8/1).

Of course, if no one takes a flyer on the 13-year veteran, I'm sure he can help out his brother on the campaign trail.
