Not to mention he's pretty damn young as well.

It's not even a matter of deserving or not deserving the money, it's a matter of effectively convincing a franchise to give it to you. These players act like they are entitled to the money. That's why you have a union that negotiates. That's why you have an agent that negotiates. That's why you have contracts, and bonuses, and so forth.

But it's not their fault, it's the franchises fault. They need to stop caving everytime a player cries about getting more money. That should automatically disqualify the player for any negotiations for the year. You go public, you get nothing. You threaten to hold out, you get nothing. As I stated before, franchises are so concerned about public backlash by some season ticket holder that says:

"We let this guy walk away when we could have gotten a 3rd round draft choice!?!?"

When the point is that for every player you allow to go public and get their way, you're letting 5-10 more guys do the same thing. I was extremely dissapointed that the Pats traded Branch. Same with the Eagles cutting T.O. although in that case I understood. These are supposed to be the franchises that stood up and didn't let players push them around. I will be equally dissapointed if the Bears cave in with Briggs, whether he deserves a new contract or not isn't even the point. Don't like the franchise tag? Take it up with your union, but don't expect any sympathy from me.
