Cross San Francisco off list for Briggs

SHARE Cross San Francisco off list for Briggs

Reports that the Niners were no longer interested in linebacker Lance Briggs appear founded.

San Francisco agreed to terms with another linebacker tonight, Dontarrious Thomas.

The ex-Viking will pair with Patrick Willis, who reached the Pro Bowl in his first year.

The interesting thing here is while the market is hot for wide receiver Bernard Berrian, who is on his way to Minnesota, there doesn’t seem to be major play for Briggs right now, almost two hours into free agency. If that remains the case Friday, it would increase the Bears’ chances of bringing him back.

Expect agent Drew Rosenhaus to work hard to create a market for him over the weekend.
