Darn you and your logic.

Rosenhaus started this mess and as far as I can tell the only quote we had was "Snyder confirmed the offer to FoxSports". Who at FoxSports? Every other outlet seemed to run with it after that. Given that Snyder doesn't typically talk to the media, perhaps there was just a little bit of spinning going on.

Re: Mort: Chicago Not Interested in Briggs' Trade

Maybe the Bears are posturing to show Briggs how much they value him, then offer him a little more once the season nears. That way both sides can save face. They are a smart but stingy front office, they will try to either get 2 1st rounders, offer him a little more (like 35 mil, 7 yrs.), or let him holdout.

I appreciate what anybody on here has said, we don't need to keep chasing other team's property, but on paper this was a good deal for the Skins & that's why the Bears rejected it.

I was just thinking who might spring for Briggs? I can't come up w/any ideas. Philly has been LB shopping, but he's expensive & will cost picks, something they don't like to give up. The G-men could be in the running.
New Orleans? Maybe they think they're a player away?

It's not happening and if you ask me it was never a serious offer in the first place.

Re: Mort: Chicago Not Interested in Briggs' Trade

Does anyone think that Snyder intentionally low-balled the offer? He may have offered the same deal we gave AA & Loyd, which would be a steal in this market. That may be why the deal fell through, since it was contingent on a long-term contract for Briggs. Snyder may have made a one-time offer. If he did, you couldn't blame him for trying. How would people here feel if we got Briggs for something like 10-12 mil signing bonus?

The Bears may have just spinned it to say they're not interested.

Tampa Bay could be interested in him, since he's from the same D scheme, but I don't think Gruden would want to miss a chance to draft CJ.

Just Snyder kicking ideas around while throwing down a few Manhattans probably. I would expect more of this kind of nonsense up until draft day. We don't want to tip our hand with our real plans now do we?

Matty deserves at least 0.9 points for his true to his beliefs hard line stance, but I'm taking 0.1 credit for myself for this post (NFL Network: Bears' Briggs, 31st Pick for Skins' 6th Pick?).

That's right.

Re: Mort: Chicago Not Interested in Briggs' Trade

Great news, it's still a little disconcerning that Snyder was even thinking about doing this, and I thought we might have seen a change in the tide, guess not, unless this was a joke Snyder, and Rosenhaus had planned, which is great if it was. Good one Danny Boy.

There's a good chance Rosenhaus stirred all this up.

Or maybe the Skins actually offered it and the Bears saved our asses.

Either way, it ain't goin down, so it's fine by me.

Maybe the FO read our poll and came to their senses. Personally I'm not so crazy about this deal anymore, I'd rather get Akoye and a pass rushing end in the 2nd round then Briggs and a pass rushing end. Then again Marcus and London aren't getting any younger, but thats why we have Rocky. I don't know maybe I'm confused.
