Reports say that the longtime Chicago Bear and future Hall of Famer Brian Urlacher is set to join Fox Sports 1 as early as this week and the deal could be done already.

A source said Urlacher, an 8-time Pro Bowler, was heavily courted by the NFL Network, but choose Fox instead. Urlacher will be part of the Fox Football Daily on Fox Sports 1, joining Curt Menefee, Jay Glazer, Ronde Barberand others. The show will go head-to-head against ESPN’s Sportscenter at 6 pm EST beginning August 19th.

Given Urlacher’s touchy relationship with the media during his playing days, it will be interesting to see him take on an “analyst” role. I am sure Fox Sports’ big push to get Urlacher onboard had absolutely nothing to do with ESPN having Ray Lewis  right? I just can’t wait until the first time Urlacher has to criticize his former team. Whether or not he is actually good on television will remain to be seen but one thing is for sure, it will be entertaining.
