Urlacher in camp

Six-time Pro Bowl linebacker Brian Urlacher rolled onto the Olivet Nazarene University campus in Bourbonnais shortly before 9 p.m. and said he was relieved to have his one-year extension finalized. He's also clearly pleased with the $18 million in new money that the deal will bring him if he plays until it expres after the 2012 season. "They didn’t have to do anything," Urlacger said of the Bears. "That was obviously a nice deal they offered me. We ended up getting it worked out." Urlacher said his neck feels fine and he's been cleared to play after arthroscopic surgery early in the off-season. Rex Grossman and Kyle Orton alternated days working with the first-team offense throughout the off-season, and that will be the plan during training camp practices. But who gets to work with the No. 1s during the first practice Wednesday at 3 p.m.? It will be decided by a coin flip at 8 a.m. that morning, with Grossman making the call, heads or tails.
