Bears eyeing LB Justin Durant, former second round pick

SHARE Bears eyeing LB Justin Durant, former second round pick

The Bears have two of the league’s best linebackers in Brian Urlacher and Lance Briggs. But, they are looking to add some youth, and one of the players they are looking at is Justin Durant.

A second-round pick of the Jacksonville Jaguars, Durant has 42 NFL starts, after playing at Hampton University. His best season was 2009, when he had 98 tackles, one sack, one interception and one forced fumble.

It’s believed the Bears also want to retain former Northwestern standout Nick Roach.

But with only Urlacher and Briggs under contract, they’ll need to sign several players.
