CHICAGO (AP) -- Lance Briggs envisions big things for the Chicago Bears this coming season.
The Pro Bowl linebacker says it "definitely could be" the best team he's played on after sweeping changes during the offseason that sent expectations soaring.
He's not quite ready to plan a parade, though.
Briggs says the Bears "still have a lot of hard work to do," with training camp opening in about a month, but it's not hard to see why he's optimistic.
The Bears were a busy bunch after a disappointing 8-8 finish, hiring a new general manager who addressed some key issues with the roster.
