There were no immediate answers from Lance Briggs. And no explanations for a change of heart that led him to show up at training camp instead of staging a prolonged holdout.
The Chicago Bears' Pro Bowl linebacker pulled up to the dining hall at Olivet Nazarene University on his bicycle today.
He says he's happy to be back.
The defending NFC champions might be happier to have him back.
He was upset that the Bears slapped the franchise tag on him. So Briggs had threatened to sit out the entire season.
Then, he reduced it to ten games. But the drama ended this week when he agreed to the one-year, $7.2 million dollar franchise tender contract.
