    I hate when I see stuff like this. I understand a guy like CJ, OD, etc asking for money when he hasn't gotten a big deal/extension yet, but halfway into a frontloaded contract is no time to be asking for another extension.

    If he had one year left on his contract I might understand and think it's ok to start negotiating a new one, but with 3 yrs. left on a contract that was front loaded for him, he needs to shut up and play football. Also sounds like he needs to quit spending so much money.

    I hate the primadonna stuff, but he's an excellent player. I agree, he should just STFU and play football.

    Lance Briggs is a punk. He demanded that the Bears give him a frontloaded contract so he could make his money. He knew that in a front loaded contract the mid and end years would be lower. He happily signed it. Now, that the big money has been paid out, he wants another big contract or a trade? Screw him.

    He has no leverage and the Bears have it all. I say make an example out of him by suspending him a game from the team.
