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

no link to this story but on the nfl network on the scroll on the bottom of the screen for the bears they are saying they are considering trading briggs and the 31st overall in the first round for the skins 6th pick in the first round.

If we go ahead with this trade, I guess we've already given up on Rocky (and the 2 2nd rounder we used to get him).

Re: Nfl Network On Briggs And Skins

I think this would be a horrible deal for us. Ill take Briggs, the 31st pick, their 2nd rounder, and maybe their third. Then maybe.

If we trade away the 6th pick, Im skipping the Draft Day party, because obviously the FO doesn't take it seriously.

As you guys may have noticed, I tend to think the Skins FO is unnecessarily vilified for a lot of the moves they make. But if this trade goes through like this, I really can't see any way to justify it

I have a hard time seeing a move like this fitting into our offseason philosophy.

I don't think it would happen. But, like Smootsmack just said, talk of such a move is unsettling.

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

briggs is looking too get payed alot. we need help up front with our d-line. i could see a trade if it was for a stud at DE or DT but we dont need a linebacker. or a guy looking to make the big money and never produce like we are used to as skins fans with our FA signings over the last couple years

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

yea i dont agree with it at all.... mcintosh is fine, marshall isnt bad either... but we need out 6th pick, or at least to trade down a few spots.. but we can go allll the way down to 31.. and then we have no other picks the 1st day? ... i would skip going to the draft party too.

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

my heart sank. this would be terrible. last i checked, briggs doesn't play DE or DT. getting a bit angry thinking about it.

don't get me wrong, briggs is great and a big upgrade over marshall, but we've got 3 starters and an untested rookie at LB, so giving him an AT type deal without addressing the DL seems a little backwards...

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

i actually think this would be a really good deal. briggs would be an upgrade over both washington and macintosh on the outside and we'd still have a first round pick, although much lower. we'd have awesome linebacker depth and would be able to rotate them. briggs is a pro bowl linebacker, this is a good deal if it happens IMO. this is a deep draft, there will be a good player at 31 and would upgrade the defense

This rumor can't be true, as it is stated. I could maybe understand if we got a 2nd AND 3rd round pick in addition but PLEASE tell me this is a joke if we are just swapping 1st round picks.

I think this trade could be justified on draft day if we could find an impact D Lineman at 31, but I wouldn't gamble on that happening.

Briggs would be our best LB, but this is the type of move that has burned us bad in the past. A potentially (because we don't know how much of his production was simply a product of his situation) overrated linebacker and a non impact 31st pick for the 6th pick in the draft.

I don't like it at all.

Angry is probably the best emotion on this deal. I swear if we pull this deal it will test the hearts and minds of many.
