      What year did Angelo become GM by the way.
      2001

      Poop.

        Not true. He said that they would look to accomodate Jones' request this season because it was time for both parties to go a different way and they were ready for Benson to start. If you really don't believe me I can find you the quote.

          Tag and trade him. Thats fine. But if they tag him again thinking he will play to see if he will sit a second season would be quite spiteful.

            99.9% of the people in the world don't retire before theyre 35 because their bodies have completely shut down and they can't remember their children's names because of one too may concussions.

              I think after or on draft day Briggs is gone.

                If Briggs was smart he wouldn't go public and make a big **** about it. By doing that he's not only decreasing his value but he's putting the Bears in a corner where if they trade him they look like they are publicly backing down.

                  To be honest im not so sure im sold on this whole buffalo trading #12 for briggs they need a LB but they also need RB now and with marshawn lynch(or possibly Adrian Peterson) sitting there why are they going to trade for briggs just to have a mediocre running back group next year? i think i can see Bills could trade their second round and maybe one of there two thirds but not so much the #12

                    He's also making himself look like a baby. He doesn't want to take 7.2 million dollars to play for a contending football team? He'll only make himself money by playing.

                      I agree briggs should have just taken it all in stride gone and out there n had a MONSTER year and than get what he deserves being one of the TOP free agents next(assuming they wouldnt tag him again)

                        Power to the people Briggs!! Don't let the man tell you what to do.

                        What do the vikings and marijuana have in common? Every time you put them in a bowl
                        they get smoked.

                          The man was signing his 7.2 million paycheck. I can't even begin to tell you all the things I'd do for 7.2 million dollars.

                            I'm not sure what to believe about this.

                            One side is the obvious, Briggs wants leverage but I wouldn't expect him to say "I'M WHOLEDING OUT CUZ I WHANT MO MONES" in March, 4 months from the beginning of Training Camp. I mean, if the Bears had no interest in trading him, wouldn't Briggs' stock take a tumble if he held out for a whole season? Why would he risk that?

                            Also, at this time last year didn't Thomas Jones say something along the same lines without the franchise tag though? It's too early for me to take this seriously but I guess in theory anything is possible.

                            I'm a believer in that you should try to get what you are worth. If you feel that you are a top-5 LB, all the power to you. In today's age of contracts and guaranteed money you have to think what's going to happen down the line. Sure, 500k per year is nice and all but what happens once Briggs hits say, 35 and retires? He probably spends a bit of that money and has to go 20years with maybe kids going to college (if they don't get a scholarships) there will be quite a bit of money being needed. I'm not too sure if the NFL pension policy is any good so I can't hold judgement on it.
                            Is that a rash?

                              And this has happened to Briggs?

                                It happens to football player in general. Its a terrible fallacy to say that just because something applies outside of football that it should apply inside the NFL. I gave you an example of something that applies to the NFL but doesnt apply to average Joe's.
