The Chicago Sun-Times is reporting that Bernard Berrian may receive the franchise tag from the Bears. You can read the entire story here.
Interesting quote from Drew Rosenhaus…
”You never know what your clients may do in free agency,” he said. ”Obviously, guys can be franchised and other guys can get extensions done. I’m just excited. We’ll go into it optimistic and hopeful.”
General manager Jerry Angelo has not ruled out placing the franchise tag on Berrian. It’s the same move that created great consternation for Briggs and Rosenhaus last year. The deadline for a team to designate franchise and transition players is Feb. 21.
