SHARE Combine: Angelo confirms Berrian will not be tagged

The biggest news out of a 45-minute sitdown with GM Jerry Angelo is that WR Bernard Berrian will not have the franchise or transition tag placed on him. The deadline for tagging players is 3 p.m. today.

Angelo described the contract offers the Bears have made to Berrian and other free agents from the team as “aggressive,” and now they must hope they can re-sign him that way.

Angelo expects Berrian and others like Lance Briggs to test the open market. Free agency opens at 11 p.m. Feb. 28.

More details soon.
