The Bears have pulled out of contract discussions with two-time Pro Bowl special teams player Brendon Ayanbadejo, meaning he is headed elsewhere.

The club apparently negotiated with Ayanbadejo and agent Drew Rosenhaus over the weekend after reeling in linebacker Lance Briggs. The Bears pulled their offer to Ayanbadejo earlier today.
