"I can't put a percentage on it. I would hope it would be 50-50 if I look at it from perspective. I can't answer that for Blake, but they did want us to leave the door open and we said we would and we will visit with his agent."
The Bears saved about three million dollars by cutting Brockermeyer. The move was spurred the by the multimillion dollar contract Olin Kreutz signed in early March.
Brockermeyer will now test the free agent market and report back to the Bears with any offers.
"I don't want to get into the logistics of what we negotiated with Blake's agent, but he wanted to leave a door open and we came up with a plan to do that. We're going to let him explore the market, as I'm sure he's already done. We moved the date back until the 9th of April where it was at the 15th of March. Blake is very motivated to return and we are very motivated to have him back. So there's still a chance that he'll be with us."
