Briggs has spent his entire 12-year NFL career with the Bears. He has been to seven Pro Bowls and made the All-Pro team in 2005.
Tillman has also spent his entire 12-year career with Chicago. He has made two Pro Bowls and made the All-Pro team in 2012.
"I love the game. I'm not going to stop 'til I'm dead," Tillman said. "I just want to keep going. I'm feeling good. I just have unfinished business. I want a championship. I think that's my main reason (to keep playing): I'm hungry for a championship."
The soon-to-be 34-year-old has been injured in each of the past two seasons, leading to speculation that he might hang up his cleats. Tillman, however, took a positive view of his recent injuries. "The positive is I haven't had that much wear tear on my body in those two years. I've had time to heal up really good," he said.
Tillman is expected to be 100 percent healthy by the time free agency opens in March. He estimated himself at about 80 percent right now. Tillman has had brief interactions with the Bears new brain trust, but said he's open to signing with any team.
"Arguably, the best receiver in the game today, in my opinion," Tillman said. "I go against him twice (a season), we match up well. And, yeah, you have to bring your big boy pants when you're going against Calvin Johnson."
Tillman also criticized those that think Johnson has fallen off as the league's best wideout.
"They're a bunch of dummies," he said. "Trust me."
