Lance Briggs will be fined to honor 9/11 anniversary

Lance Briggs has been adamant in stating his case for a new contract with the Chicago Bears.

Halfway through a six-year contract, he believes it’s time for the franchise to reward him again for top play.

The Pro Bowl linebacker is also plans on taking a stand on 9/11. Briggs announced on his Twitter account that he will wear gloves and cleats commemorating the 10th anniversary of 9/11 on Sunday when the Bears open their season at Soldier Field against the Atlanta Falcons.

The red, white and blue creations are certainly eye catchers and you can take a look at them right here. They’re also a violation of the league’s uniform policy.

“So once the breast cancer game is played, players can wear pink gloves and shoes as much as they like,” Briggs wrote on his Twitter account. “For the anniversary of 9/11 game why is it if I wear shoes and gloves that are the colors of r nations flag..I will be fined by the league.

“Reebok great job on these gloves and shoes..looks like I'm getting fined this week. Lol!”

Briggs declared it will be “by far the best fine I will ever have to pay.”

He’ll find out next week exactly what price the fashion police are going to make him pay.
