The Bears are locked in a staredown with Briggs, who's upset the team slapped the franchise player tag on him in mid-February.
First, he threatened to sit out the season. Then, agent Drew Rosenhaus told reporters his client would sit out the first ten games and report for the final six to qualify as serving one year as a franchise player.
Meanwhile, the Washington Redskins offered the sixth pick in the draft for Briggs and the No. 31 selection. Angelo says he plans to get back to the Redskins in the coming week.
