The game of he said, he said is just that, a game.
That is what Bears spokesperson Scott Hagel said this afternoon in the wake of Bobby Wade's comments on KFAN in Minneapolis this morning. The former Bears wide receiver met up with Brian Urlacher in Las Vegas this past weekend, and according to Wade, Urlacher hurled a not-so-nice term in the direction of new quarterback Jay Cutler. A term that isn't fit for radio but happens to be on the station's podcast.
"It's all nonsense,'' Hagel said when asked if the team would comment on the matter. "I've talked to everybody [but Wade]. There is absolutely no truth to any of it.''
Hagel confirmed that Urlacher did see Wade in Las Vegas this past weekend.
"I don't know what they talked about other than what was not said,'' Hagel said. "It's absolutely 100 percent false.''
One teammate said he didn't know what Wade said was true or not but said he doubted it because from his vantage point Urlacher and Cutler got along well during OTA's. The player added he just wants the story to go away as soon as possible with the season set to begin.
