  • Briggs prepared to sit out season

    "I am now prepared to sit out the year if the Bears don't trade me or release me," Briggs told FOXSports.com via cell phone Monday. "I've played my last snap for them. I'll never play another down for Chicago again."
    Fox Sports, Jay Glazer article

        And the plot thickens. Please come to Buffalo for Baltimore's 7th round selection. Is that asking too much? I wouldn\t mind giving up both of our 3rd round picks for him, maybe a 2nd next year or Baltimore's 3rd next year depending on what other teams are offering.

          If he ends up in Buffalo wow.
          my scent?...like making love to a lumberjack
          <TACKLE> i will ngata give you a bj raji
          <+BOE> Scott, with Burfict's character concerns (whether legit or not) you think Pioli would draft him. :D
          <+ScottWright> Why not. Baldwin does need a sparring partner...

              I like Briggs, but I'm not a fan of holdouts.

              If you deserve money, you will end up getting paid, one way or another.

                I've gotta say I'm really doubting it. 7 mil (or whatever it is) to play one year or sitting out. IMO he's just bluffing to obviously get them to trade him so he can get his mega deal.

                  Why the hell would you capitalize the first letter of every word, but then use an abbreviation for regular? Weird.

                    This is going to get very interesting because i doubt they are going to move him this season.

                      I think this will work it's way like the Javon Walker situation last year. On draft day, somehow, someway, Briggs is elsewhere. If I were Buffalo I wouldn't hesitate to give up my 2nd round pick.

                          Yea he will probably end up being moved close to draft day, i think a second and maybe a conditional pick in next years draft would be enough for him

                            The Bears cant actively trade him, and him being so public about it only hurts his chances. The Bears own his rights, they hold all the cards so to speak. The Bears did offer him a long term deal, and yes it was probably worth less then what he could have made this offseson (probably a lot less considering how much money is being thrown around). He would most likely have seen every last cent of the long term deal the Bears offered, which is something you probably cant say for most free agent signings. So at the end of the day, he would still get paid about the same.

                              That's true. I think this situation is more in the FO's favor though, IIRC Walker was on his rookie contract still and was coming off the injury. If he played he would've made little anyway so he could hold out to cash in big elsewhere.

                              With Briggs, he has over 6 million waiting for him if he just signs the tender... I could see him playing this year under the tag then refusing next year as he would have a whole lot more money.
