Fri, 31 Jan 2014 10:10:26 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Lovie Smith invited retired LB Brian Urlacher to visit training camp. "Brian is a family member for life," Smith said. "I've had the privilege to be around a lot of great players, any great player I've been around is always welcome wherever I am. We're trying to build something here football-wise, and I'm going to call on the Brian Urlachers of the world, and of course all our former Bucs around here. Derrick Brooks will tell you I've been in his ear quite a bit, got a chance to text with John Lynch yesterday... anytime you can have players around your current roster that have been through our system and know what it takes, it's a good thing. I will always be inviting any old player that I've been around."
