Redskins Acquire About Briggs

His agent, Drew Rosenhaus, says Briggs' future is now in the hands of the two teams.

Briggs has threatened to sit out the 2007 season after the Super Bowl runner-ups slapped a franchise tag on him.

Bears general manager Jerry Angelo, in Phoenix, Arizona for the N-F-L meetings, says the team will take the Redskins' offer to take Briggs off their hands under consideration. He says there is no timetable for a deal.

Briggs would earn seven-point-two (m) million dollars in 2007 from the Bears, the average of the five highest salaries at his position.
