Bears | Hopeful deal with Lance Briggs can get done
Chicago Bears LB Lance Briggs is under contract through the 2013 season, although before last season he stated he wanted a new deal or he wanted to be traded. Chicago Bears head coach Lovie Smith is hopeful a resolution will come soon. "I did have a chance to talk to Lance a little bit," Smith said. "Lance is family to us. Again, you're talking about a guy who's been here every day I've been here, and plays better football every year. He knows how much we like him and want him to be a Bear forever. So yes I've talked to him. Hopefully things are getting better on that front."
