With Brian Urlacher ailing, Bears re-sign LB Dom DeCicco

Dom DeCicco.jpgWith Brian Urlacher's status for Sunday's game against the Minnesota Vikings and beyond in doubt, the Bears have re-signed linebacker Dom DeCicco.

DeCicco, who played for the Bears last season after signing as an undrafted free agent, was waived with an injury settlement after suffering what eventually was diagnosed as a sports hernia in the first preseason game against teh Denver Broncos.

DeCicco became a key contributor on special teams last season. He was the Bears' second-leading special-teams tackler with 17, behind only Pro Bowler Corey Graham, who had 22.

DeCicco, a safety/linebacker for Dave Wannstedt at Pittsburgh, was technically the second-team middle linebacker behind Urlacher in training camp. But when Urlacher was slowed by knee problems, the Bears moved strongside linebacker Nick Roach to then middle, with Geno Hayes replacing Roach at the strong side.

Still, the Bears saw DeCicco's NFL future at linebacker in the middle.

Dont know why they dont give arron Curry a shot. Im sure he would produce tell you what seattle exposed the defense and made them look old. I see a trend coming on they better hope cutler is got the ball last wouldn't be a bad idea to look a jones walker at reciever just remeber lovie if you dont do something this could cost your job just like it caused angelo for not having a good replacement for Cutler. Go Bears The offense is coming around so sad that the defense is not playing to their level they need to play together
