Re: Bears Bring Briggs Back

So, had Briggs come to the Redskins....he would have replaced McIntosh...but once McIntosh had healed...what then? I wonder if this affected his decision? Or maybe the fact that Williams is not here anymore?? Just curious.

He really didn't even come back for all that much money.

Somewhat on-topic, do you guys think Tommie Harris is worth making a trade for?
I'm not surprised. Briggs is a good player but he's not a game changing type of linebacker and he doesn't rush the passer. And he probably wouldn't be as good in another defense. He made the right move and he's still gettting a ton of dough. 13 mil guar. isn't bad at all.

I don't think we need Harris. I think we're fine with who we have. We need a DE more than a tackle.

Such is life. We better draft well this year.
Signing Briggs would mean we're giving up on Rocky. Did you happen to see how well Rocky played before he got hurt? We're fine w/out Briggs and let's hope Rocky's knee's will hold up.

Almost had Briggs!


'SKINS MADE A PLAY FOR BRIGGS
Though the decision of linebacker Lance Briggs to re-sign with the Bears has created the impression that he had no options elsewhere, a league source tells us that the Redskins made a run at Briggs.
It was, per the source, "very close" between the Redskins and the Bears. In the end, Briggs decided given the similarity of the numbers to stay home.
Factoring in the $7.2 million salary he earned as a franchise player in 2007, Briggs will earn $28.8 million over four years.
Factoring in the Lamborghini he crashed and abandoned, the number is more like $28.3 million.

I agree so far PFT was the one that said that the Redskins had deals in place with Hacket and Florence. So far we haven't heard anything from Hacket and Florence signed with the Jags.

Also JLC, says that those rumors aren't true, and JLC isn't one to suck up to Danny boy. If the Redskins had made a play he would have confirmed it.

Still Very Quiet

Despite reports to the contrary, multiple sources say the Skins did not make any real push for Lance Briggs; in fact, Chicago was his strong suitor by a mile.

Re: Almost had Briggs!

I think us getting Briggs would have been the same case as the Eagles getting Samuel. Yeah he's a good player, but is not in an area we really need (Philly needs a WR badly, probably more than we do).

Re: Bears Bring Briggs Back

I would like Tommie Harris & DeWayne Robertson maybe a 3rd & 4th pick then we can get DE in the 1st & CB in the 2nd, Anthony Mix will step up as the WR we need, if that don't work give Detroit a 2nd for Roy Williams the WR

Is he available? Because if the Bears haven't stated openly that they're looking to trade him, you can bet they won't consider any proposal that doesn't include at least one arm and one leg. Not sure it's worth talking about?

It would be fantastic then we could trade away picks for star players then trade 3 scrubs and get the picks right back.
