Bears (including Briggs) like Williams

David Haugh (the best Bears writer, IMO) had a nice piece on Jamar Williams earlier this week. He opened with an interesting note that Briggs called Williams, asking him to take his job. The insinuation is that its good for Lance's buddies still with the Bears and will allow the Bears more leverage and flexibility in dealing him.

There was also talk of support from teammates, with this interesting lack of doubt:

In contrast, a year ago during Briggs' mini-camp holdout, replacement Leon Joe was nicknamed "Not Briggs" by a couple irreverent teammates who couldn't envision Joe ever starting in the Bears' defense. There were no such signs of disrespect for Williams, a former fourth-round pick.

So i guess that makes Jamar "Not Not Briggs," which is a good thing. If the team isn't just blowing sunshine up Haugh's ass (and i trust him enough to catch on to that sort of thing), the Bears could end up with a win-win situation. Either they trade Briggs and get proper value in return or they call his bluff and if he comes back they'll have great depth at LB. The only way they lose is if Williams tanks it (or gets hurt again), Briggs holds out the whole year, Okwo doesn't pan out, and the team can't find good value for Briggs in trade. I like our chances.
