Lance Briggs sees Bears tenure coming to an end
In the final year of his contract, veteran Chicago Bears linebacker Lance Briggs says this is the end of his time in Chicago after a dozen years there.
"I understand this is probably my last year as a Chicago Bear," Briggs said. "It's the last year of my deal. It's not like I'm going to magically show up after this year, and they're going to open the gates up for you. Those gates are closing, you're a free agent. I know the reality of it, and I'm proud of all the years I've had here. It's been great."
Briggs is a seven-time Pro Bowl selection.
Briggs is making $4.75 million in base salary this year.
"I understand it," Briggs said. "I understand this is probably my last year as a Chicago Bear, and this could be the last time I play the Packers. But for me, I just, I really enjoy my teammates, and it's been unfortunate to watch from the sidelines because I want to see them find success."
