        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.
        He wasn't tagged, but threatening to sit out unless he was traded worked for Deion Branch. I don't see how Branch had more leverage than Briggs has now.

        • how is going to hurt him not to play? I guarantee even if he sat out an entire year he would still make bank the next off season or if the bears chose to franchise him again its another 7 mill to sit on his can

          and at this point any team that offers to trade for him is gonna want to know if he will play so thus giving him the option to choose where he goes

            • Who are some possible AFC teams that would trade for Briggs? I doubt Angelo will trade Briggs to any possible NFC contender much like how he trade Thomas Jones to the Jets.

                Yes he was. Lance Briggs was tagged by the Chicago Bears, hence why he is bitching. Am I missing something here?

                Lance Briggs doesn't hold any leverage. We don't have to trade him. We don't have to do anything. He can sit on his ass this year and not play while not collecting a pay check. The ball is in his court, not the organizations.

                • Ok nevermind, I thought you were talking about Briggs Basileus. Or were you? Clear this up for me please.

                    The same was true for Deion Branch. In the end Branch still got what he wanted. Granted the Bears might refuse to cave in, but there is still probably a decent chance that Briggs will be traded.

                    • If Briggs sit this one out and the bears somehow get nothing for him he deserves man of the year.

                        I was using the example of Deion Branch from last year to show that threatening to sit the year out has forced teams to trade a player. Branch wasn't tagged, but he didn't have anymore leverage than Briggs has now. Yet Branch was still traded.

                          So you were talking about Branch, ok gotcha. My fault.

                          Anywho, the Bears will trade him if they WANT to, not because they HAVE to. If they feel like the the best thing is to trade Lance because they get a good deal, they'll do it. But they won't trade him because he wants to be traded.

                            How funny though would that be if they franchised him again next year, hahahahah.

                              Didn't they trade their best RB because he wanted to be traded?

                                They traded Thomas Jones because they were confident in Cedric Benson, and the value they were receiving was worth it in Jerry Angelo's mind. It was because Jerry and Lovie wanted to, not because Thomas wanted to.
