Lance Briggs isn’t worried about Brandon Marshall

When the Bears first traded for wide receiver Brandon Marshall, he had an alleged incident at a New York nightclub hanging over his head as a reminder that he hasn’t been the most reliable player throughout his career.

Any chance of punishment for the incident has gone away, though, and one of Marshall’s new teammates thinks that there won’t be any future problems on that front. Lance Briggs told Vaughn McClure of the Chicago Tribune that he isn’t worried about Marshall at all. Briggs doesn’t think anyone on the team needs to babysit Marshall, either.

“Brandon’s going to be fine because Brandon’s going to be fine,” Briggs said. “It’s not just because of us.”

Briggs has his own experience with leaving off-field drama behind as he got older. Briggs crashed a Lamborghini in 2007 and left the scene before trying to get police to believe that the car had been stolen. He’s also had contentious disputes with women over child support, but those issues have receded into the dark over the last few years.

Other Bears share Briggs’ opinion that Marshall’s past is anything but prologue to his Bears tenure. Jay Cutler said something similar when the Bears first traded for his former Broncos teammate and the Bears’ chances this season are pretty well tied into the optimistic outlook on Marshall being correct.

    Are you forgetting who the commissioner is? I”m not so sure we’re past the point of punishment.

    He’s a knucklehead. So he’ll be a knucklehead. Talented though.
