    But it has nothing to do with what he was saying.

            I don't think he will sit the whole year but...He is taking a HUGE risk there. If he does that, he can guarantee that any team that was looking into him this year will think twice about doing it next year. He will be seen as a player who only cares about himself and not his team. This is not a good idea if you ask me.

              Neither do 99% of NFL players. There is risk involved in this business, but not necessarily more than hundreds of other jobs that ordinary people work in (who don't receive millions of dollars to play a game).

                It's completely non-related. What people that don't play football would take as financial compensation doesn't matter. Who cares? That's probably why they don't play football.

                    The point was he should have plenty of money to last a year.

                      I already posted about that, he didn't.

                        But the risk and short lived career should be taken into account when commenting about a players so called "greed".

                        I may have misunderstood the original comment so I apologize if I did.

                          Of course. But is he going to turn down 7.2 million for nothing? I don't think so. But again, we'll see. Anything that anyone says right now is purely speculating. Briggs is property of the Chicago Bears. They own his rights. He can play and make money or not play and get nothing. If they trade him then good for him, but I don't think it's going to happen.

                            Just because you don't want it to happen dosen't mean it wont. :)

                              No I'm looking at this pretty objectively. I completely understand Briggs' perspective on this. He just doesn't have any leverage. Players say this every year and it never ever happens. In the history of the franchise tag there hasn't been a single player that has missed one game. Think about that.
