Brian Urlacher hasn’t had much to do this off-season besides workout and worry about when the lockout is going to end.

So nobody was shocked when he had a lot to say. He touched on Dhani Jones’s comments, Soldier Field’s grass situation and the Bears trip to London this season.

Here’s what Urlacher had to say about those things:

Respone to Dhani Jones: “I think we were drafted in the same class, right? Is he a 2000 guy? I haven’t heard anything about him since then. I saw him on a TV show with a bow-tie on though. So I know him better for how the way he dresses than what he does on a football field. Guys are going to talk. I’ve definitely had a lot worse things said publicly from guys, so I can live with it.”

Talking about if the grass at Soldier Field gives the Bears an advantage: “No. You’re both playing on it. The weather I think is the biggest advantage we have against teams that don’t play in our weather. But we’re a fast defense. You put us on that FieldTurf eight home games a year? We’re going to be really fast. You put [Julius] Peppers on that turf? [Devin] Hester, with all those cuts on turf? [Johnny] Knox? All those guys. We’re going to be a little better, I think. Faster.”

Talking about if he was excited to travel to London to face the Bucs: “No, I’m not excited to go to London. … I don’t understand why they do that. … I am not excited to go to London, I will say that.” I can’t imagine many players would be, considering the travel involved and disruption to their weekly schedule.”
