One could say that Briggs agents and representatives told Briggs his remarks make him appear too harsh and casts a negative light on him, but I tend to believe something different.
Instead Briggs is a regular reader of Windy City Gridiron and he reads the scathing commentary I drop on him and out of respect for this site and it's readers he decided he needs to pull back and restate his position.
That's not to say I'm going to sit out a year, but I'm prepared to do that if it comes to that,'' Briggs said. ''There are a lot of different scenarios that could happen. The best-case scenario is that the Bears offer me a long-term contract at market value.''
For the record market value is not equal to the horrible contracts that are being handed out this year.
