Chicago Sun-Times: Briggs plans 10-Game holdout to combat franchise tag
Briggs plans 10-Game holdout to combat franchise tag
Chicago Sun-Times: "Drew Rosenhaus, Briggs' agent, said Monday at the NFL owners meetings that his client will line up for the Bears next season -- but only on a limited basis if the team refuses to remove the franchise tag it put on the linebacker. Rosenhaus said Briggs would sit out the first 10 games, then return for the final six to accrue a played season under league rules... A report on NFL.com on Monday evening said the Bears were talking to the Washington Redskins about a deal in which they would move up from No. 31 to No. 6 in the first round."
