    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.
    Walker held out to get his rookie deal changed, then got injured. Briggs just finished his rookie deal.

      Yeah, that's the thing. Walker didn't have the FA tag ahead of him while Briggs does. I'm guessing Walker was due under a million while Briggs is due top 5 LB money.

      I just don't see him going through with the hold out if he's still with the team that long.

        it doesnt seem logical to hold out when you have that kind of money on the table for one year... but lets say he does come back how well will he play? will his disgust with situation come out and show on the feild? ... but ultimatley i think whether he stays or not might come down to the kind of offers they get for him

          If he plays for the Bears next year at all I can't see him being to popular among teammates and fans, he would just put that whole defense out of sync. I would definitely get him out if I were the Bears. Bills 2nd round pick sound good? :D

              Why does everyone automatically assume he's bluffing? If the man strongly believes in the something, it wouldn't surprise me if he DID sit out like I mentioned in an earlier thread.
              The whole world loves neophyte athletic tight end Jimmy Graham from Miami with the 95th pick. "Best pick in the draft,'' one AFC coach told me. "Give him time, and in that offense, he'll be better than [Jeremy] Shockey by the start of next year.''

              “We know that no matter the adversity, be it the lockout, be it the suspension or be it a hurricane, our men will pull together and defend the honor of this city. We’ve shown we’ve been able to do that.” - Jabari Greer

                He's going to be traded..I wouldn't worry about it....where there is a seller, there is usually a buyer..and Lance Briggs is great talent and if the Bears managed a way to get rid of Thomas Jones, they'll get rid of Lance Briggs....they will get some kind of deal and manage to make a trade...

                              And I'm seven feet tall. There are two rules to the offseason.

                              1)Never believe anything anyone says about the draft ever.

                              2)Never believe anything anyone says in regards to contract negotiations.

                              Quite frankly I doubt Briggs has the money to skip the whole season. He's been making less around 500k. He's going to turn down 7.2 million for one year? I doubt it. But we'll see.


                              Nobody cares about your stupid fantasy team.

                                Bears will budge first b/c they want compensation for somebody that will just be sitting out
