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.
