Re: Another Briggs Thread-More Teams Entering the Bidding?

All of this offseason speculation and crazy rumors are putting us all on edge. I think we need to step back from it a little while and catch our breath. Hopefully the team will do something SMART to address our needs for the team. When is the draft?

The longer Washington's trade offer for Lance Briggs sits on the table, the greater the chance it probably dies a slow death. The Bears are wise to hold on to the Pro Bowl linebacker for now because his value could escalate as the NFL Draft nears. Although the Redskins appear to be the most anxious to make a deal, Scout.com has learned that a few more teams have made inquiries.

Veteran NFL scout Tony Pauline has had his ear to the ground regarding the Lance Briggs situation. It appears that a few teams are starting to make a push for the Pro-Bowler, but GM Jerry Angelo is taking his time fielding offers. On top of that, Pauline has noticed that the Bears have been going out of their way to interview outside linebackers leading up the NFL Draft, further suggesting that they are making plans to be without Briggs in 2007.

Here's the latest according to Pauline's sources:

Angelo trying to get more out of the Redskins The trade offer on the table would send Briggs and the Bears' first-round draft pick No. 31 overall to Washington in exchange for the Redskins first-rounder at No. 6. Briggs' representative, Drew Rosenhaus, has been running his mouth to anyone who will listen that this is a good move for both teams, but Angelo is not about to let an agent and a disgruntled player force his hand. According to Pauline, Angelo is also asking for linebacker Rocky McIntosh, Washington's second-round selection a year ago, to sweeten the pot.

McIntosh would be an instant replacement for Briggs and the Redskins actually traded up last year to get him, but owner Daniel Snyder has been known to throw away draft picks like Kleenex.

Bills need to replace Spikes and Fletcher-Baker Buffalo has been very active in the trade market this offseason, sending tailback Willis McGahee to Baltimore for a slew of draft picks before packaging linebacker Takeo Spikes and quarterback Kelly Holcomb to Philadelphia for defensive tackle Darwin Walker. Linebacker London Fletcher-Baker left for the aforementioned Redskins via free agency, so the Bills have major holes to fill at that position. Pauline has learned that Buffalo is offering their pick in the first round No. 12 overall to the Bears for Briggs, although Angelo would have to include another selection in return for that deal to happen.

This potential trade could pick up some steam because Buffalo is coached by former Bears front man Dick Jauron, who Briggs played for as a rookie.

Giants also in need of serious help at linebacker New York currently has openings at both outside linebacker positions, having cut both LaVar Arrington and Carlos Emmons in the offseason. Antonio Pierce is the only `backer the G-Men have with a legitimate NFL resume, plus their defense was absolutely ravaged by injuries last season. Pauline reports that the Giants have offered their spot in Round 1 No. 20 overall to the Bears for the durable Briggs, although this deal would technically have less appeal than the other two according to the draft value chart.

Angelo would probably much rather pick 20th in the first round as opposed to 6th or 12th because of the money involved, but New York will have to offer more for this swap to happen.
Can we get the Bears to make the trade with the Giants, then trade their two firsts and a third for the #6? Then everyone is truly happy.

Re: Another Briggs Thread-More Teams Entering the Bidding?

If we throw in Rocky, we are a joke to the NFL period. If we get the 62 pick and throw in Rocky it will be OK.

I would love to have Briggs on this team, he is a top 5 LB in the league, he will do nothing but help us.

We can draft Crowder or Harrell at 31 and we are instantly back to being a dominant Defense. No question in my mind. Just picture the line-up.

The more I think about it Briggs and the 31st is a good deal for the sixth, this year because Dline is so deep. Anything more is ludicris.

We should know soon, I for one will root for Briggs if he is on the team.

On a side note, why is Michael Ruffin still on the Wizards? That was the worst play I have ever seen.

Re: Another Briggs Thread-More Teams Entering the Bidding?

I see you guys are just barely missing the problem. I think our problem is that our O-line (while good) is not quite physical enough. Back in the "hey day" our O-line would just maul you to death from start to finish, without taking any plays off. Also, our O-line was far bigger than any D-line out there. Now-a-days, not so much... I see our guys just making one or two blocks at the point of attack, and that is it. And, once the running back breaks through the line of scrimage they are off duty. It wasn't like that back in the day. Once the ball was snapped, pads and bodies were flying until the whistle blew. That is how we used to roll.

Thumbs down Re: Another Briggs Thread-More Teams Entering the Bidding?

The more I think about it, the less I like the Briggs trade, period. If they throw McIntosh in, then I just give up on this team completely. Coach Gibbs, please restore some sanity and veto Boy Danny and Incompetent Vinny and their stupid personnel moves!

Re: Another Briggs Thread-More Teams Entering the Bidding?

I'm a Chicago Bears fan checking in to see what Skins fans think about the Briggs trade idea. From the looks of things you hate it as much as we do.

-For us, there is no one we need at #6. The bears need G, TE, WR and LB. If we took anybody to fill those slots it would be a huge reach.

-Giving up #31 is a bad idea as there are so many good players in this draft that would fill one of the needs I described.

-Trading Briggs would require us using our second round chocie on a LB so nothing is gained.

-Briggs is an all-pro stud even if you think he benefits from the Bears defensive system or having Urlacher next to him

-You don't need him as you have a decent LB corp. The Giants or Bills have a real need for this guy

Not trying to stir the pot, just telling you we hate the idea as much as you do.

Is the Danny just playin everybody on this? just as he did w/L. Davis & let the copokes pay big $?
If we're not gonna get Briggs, let someone else pay him a huge contract. The Danny & Drew R. have to do something in late March.

That's his job. He's the best at it.

I would think the dust would be settlin pretty soon on this deal, one way or the other.

Re: Another Briggs Thread-More Teams Entering the Bidding?

Apparently we are still the front runners! Angelo also states no other team has made a offer. The odds are going up he's comin to DC!

ESPN.com - NFL - Bears GM: Multiyear contract for Briggs 'unlikely'

Re: Another Briggs Thread-More Teams Entering the Bidding?

I still think we could get him and then turn around and trade him...we could decrease his value significantly and use that to trade back up because he would no longer have the status of "franchise player" We could bring him here and immediately trade him to someone else who was on the fence about dealing with Chicago because of the price. Lance Briggs and the 31st pick for a mid first rounder and a third rounder.

I do not see that as a realistic move. I think if he is brought into DC, he's being brought in here to stay. Not to turn around and trade.

Thanks. BTW, I'm impressed with the quality of the posts here and the knowledge of the posters. I stopped over at the Jet's board after the Bears gave away Thomas Jones and while the enthusiasm is high the quality of analysis is a bit less. I have never seen a proposed trade that BOTH teams' fans hate so much as the Briggs deal

SI.com - Scorecard Daily - NFL Truth & Rumors - April 1 - Sunday April 1, 2007 10:44AM

If the Vikings are intent on picking Clemson defensive end Gaines Adams with their No. 7 pick in the April 28 draft, they surely are watching the Lance Briggs-Drew Rosenhaus circus with keen interest. A proposed trade between the Redskins and Bears would greatly increase the odds of Adams being available for Minnesota.
