49ers Still Interested In Veteran LB Lance Briggs

Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area reports that the 49ers remain interested in signing former Bears LB Lance Briggs to a contract.

Briggs previously visited with the 49ers, who have been the only reported team to show interest in veteran linebacker since free agency got underway a months ago.

It’s worth mentioning that signings free agents players will not longer count against a team’s 2016 compensatory picks after tomorrow, which means Briggs’ market could pick up in the coming days.

San Francisco has already signed Philip Wheeler to a contract, but they could probably use some more competition before they head into training camp.

Briggs, 34, finished out his three-year, $17.5 million contract and will be an unrestricted free agent in the coming months.

In 2014, Briggs appeared in eight games and recorded 35 tackles, one interception, a forced fumble and three pass defenses for the Bears defense. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 10 outside linebacker in a 4-3 system.

We have Briggs featured in our Top 100 Free Agents list.
