SHARE Combine: Angelo addresses character issues and Briggs

The Bears have made the decision they want to re-sign three-time Pro Bowl linebacker Lance Briggs to a longterm contract.

If their price matches what he is seeking remains to be seen.

The club is comfortable with writing a big check, though.

We do [take character issues into consideration],” general manager Jerry Angelo said. “We have. Are those issues that weve talked about internally? We have. But were OK with Lance. Weve had Lance for a long time and we know him. In terms of what he does at Halas Hall has been exemplary.

“His durability, his practice habits. Everything that we do or ask him to do, hes been great for business. Certainly were always concerned about the citizenship, but a lot of that ties into his own personal life. Again, were comfortable with him and hopefully well be able to get a good resolution. Thats the plan, but well just have to wait and see.
