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.
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.''

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...
