Re: NFL Network: Bears' Briggs, 31st Pick for Skins' 6th Pick?

I have no problem with Briggs but for once I want to come out as a clear winner on one of these deals. To me a fairer deal would Briggs,2nd and 4th for our 1st. So to win I want their Briggs,2nd and 3rd. To me any lower than that and we don't win the trade.

For crissakes the guy wants out and he is being voacl about it. We should have leverage here.

Do we even have the room under the cap to pull off such a deal?
A lot of times, there is a "leak" from someone in the orginization, and some glue sniffing intern might have heard that the Bears brass was interested in this deal, (why wouldn't they be?) and then instantly thought it was news worthy. I just don't think the Skins brass are THAT dumb. I know they have been fairly dumb on certain moves, but not THAT dumb.
The difference with this is that two seperate sources, NFL Network and Jay Glazer, reported this. So the talks, at least, are factual.

Not sure how much that means at this point. So we've contacted the Bears about Briggs. Maybe it's just due process. Who knows at this point?

I didn't see a link if here so here you all go.

'SKINS MAKING A PLAY FOR BRIGGS?
Adam Schefter of NFL Network and Jay Glazer of FOXSports.com report that the Redskins and Bears are contemplating a trade that would send the No. 6 overall pick to Chicago for linebacker Lance Briggs and the No. 31 overall pick in the draft.
But didn't the 'Skins learn last year the folly of trying to force a Tampa 2 specialist into Gregg Williams' defense? Though we can't fault Adam Archuleta (one of our sponsors) for taking $10 million guaranteed, the Redskins should have considered more carefully the question of whether the player would fit within the system.
Briggs' success possibly is a product of his role as the weakside linebacker in the Tampa 2 defense, which gives him a lot of freedom to roam in open space and make tackles. As the "will" in a traditional 4-3, will he be as effective?
It's a big risk for the Redskins to take, in our view. But we have a feeling that owner Dan Snyder (who has been uncharacteristically quiet in free agency) is itching to make a big deal, especially at a time when he's rubbing elbows with his 31 partners/competitors at the NFL's 2007 Annual Meeting.

According to Jay Glazer, Dan Snyder personally told FoxSports that he is interested in the trade.

Re: NFL Network: Bears' Briggs, 31st Pick for Skins' 6th Pick?

This is a very bad trade, we get a LB that has been protected by the skills of his defensive line and not to mention the best MLB in the NFL in Brian Urlacher, dont forget this is the same defense that made Warrick Holdman look like an All-pro, I dont really understand where we gain any ground here, we could select a defensive lineman or even Calvin Johnson if he falls and that would be ten times better, hell we could wait til' next year and select Xavier Adibi and pair him with Mcintosh, or we could just trade back pick Pat Willis and still get Victor Abiamiri in the second round and that would work out better for us. Lets face it folks, were rebuilding our defense and we are a long shot to make the superbowl to say the least, but lets do this the right way, lets not try to rebuild over night like every other time before.

I'm not saying the talks aren't factual. You have to ask yourself, how many times have you heard about a trade rumor that happened exactly the way you heard it? Not very many.
I'm sure a lot of teams have contacted the Bears about Briggs. Just cause they want the 1st round pick, doesn't mean they get it. And getting thier 31st in return is not a fair deal for us. Obviously, otherwise the trade would have happened, not be a rumor.

Now I'm just confused. He's a smarter businessman than that.

Something about this whole deal just seems off.

Re: NFL Network: Bears' Briggs, 31st Pick for Skins' 6th Pick?

I've always sorta gone against the grain and thought that you can build a team through a mixed FA-Draft approach (in lieu of a draft centered approach), but the Redskins are really going overboard. I'm not sold on the idea that any GM would improve our FO, but I'm starting to think that maybe that theory has some validity.

I just don't buy this rumor.

But let's think about it this way, Rosenhaus and Snyder have a great business relationship, right?

This situation could simply be Rosenhaus calling up his buddy and saying "Hey Danny, help me out a bit, let me float some rumors out there about you being interested in my client to get contact talks moving with the Bears".

Re: NFL Network: Bears' Briggs, 31st Pick for Skins' 6th Pick?

The only way i see this happening is if their is a team that is willing to trade their first round pick straight up for briggs but is not low enough for the bears liking. If we do this trade and we get the 31st overall, then trade briggs to this team and get a mid 1st round pick im all for it. Hopefully the FO can squeeze out a 3rd or 4th from chicago and this would be beautiful in my opinion. I would probaly crap my self if the skins picked twice in the first round.

In reply to my prior thread i think we would actually need that 3rd or 4th rounder to go along with briggs for the 2nd first rounder.

and it would definitely be a high first round pick not a mid round. My first post was retarded.
