Briggs Franchised

There are stil a boat load of questions facing the Bears this off season, but one of the biggest has started to shake out.

The Chicago Bears have franchised Pro Bowl line backer, Lance Briggs.

Briggs is a 4 year stand out on the Super Bowl runner up Bears.  He is the second player to be franchised this year, Justin Smith of the Bengals is the other.

Briggs is tendered a one year deal of 7.206 million.  The Bears have until mid March to sign Briggs to a long term contract.  If they cannot and Briggs enters free agency any other team would have to possibly relinquish two first rounder.  The Bears can also choose to match whatever offer Briggs agrees to sign.
