This week, retired linebacker Brian Urlacher said the Bears had a "dive guy" who would fake an injury to slow down a high-powered offense. With a twinkle in his eye, Briggs didn't hesitate to join the fray started by his old teammate.
"It's crazy because I was thinking, I remembered, I was that guy," Briggs said. "I couldn't remember what the signal was, because every game I was like, 'I'm the dive guy, but what's the signal?' So I never did the dive because I forgot the signal every game. That was crazy. Are we good?'"
With that, Briggs ended his news conference, drawing a laugh from those assembled.
For the record, Urlacher claimed that the signal was a coach simulating a diver at a swimming pool.
Asked if he has talked to Urlacher since the future Hall of Famer admitted to the team's practice of faking injuries, Briggs said he had not.
