LB Diyral Briggs Signed To Denver Broncos Practice Squad

49ers fan favorite LB Diyral Briggs cleared waivers earlier today but decided to sign with the Denver Broncos as a member of their practice squad. As a member of the practice squad he could sign with any team that would want him, although that team would have to keep him on their active roster for three straight weeks.

I'm sure some folks are crushed by this, while others won't be feeling quite so bad. I'm not wildly concerned about it given the fact that Ahmad Brooks is healthy again and the team has a solid backup option in Travis LaBoy. I realize Briggs had a lot of natural talent, but given the fact that he wasn't going to see much playing time this season, I don't think this as bad as some people would make it out to be.
