"Before the Bears' three-day mini cap that concluded sunday, holdout lance briggs basically urged stand-in weak-side linebacker jamar williams to take his job. Please. "I spoke with briggs a couple of weeks ago," Williams said on sunday. "i told him, 'You gotta do what you gotta do.' He said, 'Go and show them I'm replaceable.'"


Classy or unclassy?

Well it's not going to do Lance much good. He burned bridges already, and I'm going to go out on a lim and say it's about a 95% chance he'll be back next season. So Lance, either play and earn your $7 million, or sit and earn nothing. It's that simple.

Like I said earlier, the way Alex is handling his potential trade situation is the way to do it. Go to management and see if he can see a trade, JA is a hardass but he also cares about his players and is willing to work things out. Don't go through the ******* media and basically disgrace the organization (not to say I don't blame him though). If Lance goes to JA face to face and voices his displeasure, this is a whole different situation.

But as they say, you make your bed you lie in it.

I think Briggs wants Jamar to do well in camp so he can get a trade before preseason is over so I would say self-serving.

However if Jamar or Okwo step in and play well during the season it lowers Briggs value dramatically and reinforces the impression that Briggs is just a product of the system. I think if a trade doesn't get done and the replacement linebackers don't look completely lost in training camp, we will see Briggs dressed for the first game.
