  • Redskins to make play for Bears' Briggs (Merged)

    Bears are talking with the Skins which would send Lance Briggs and their 1st round pick to Washington for their number 6 pick. Wow! Could you imagine the Bears getting the 6th pick? That would be insane!

    I just saw this on NFL Total Access also confirmed by mxbronco13 on one of his posts. http://www.kffl.com/hotw/nfl

    Sorry mx, I didnt realize you posted this as a post on the "Who's left" thread (General discussions) until after I created this one. Thats why I edited it.

    No way they get Calvin Johnson there, so are they hoping for Peterson or Quinn/Russel?

      Redskins to make play for Bears' Briggs

      PHOENIX - The NFL Owners meeting are in full swing with announcements and committee meetings highlighting the week but it's the deals made on the side that give juice to the week.

      One such deal offered Monday night, if it happens, could have major ramifications on two franchises and one franchise player.

      Drew Rosenhaus, the agent for Bears' disgruntled Pro Bowl linebacker Lance Briggs, told FOXSports.com that the Redskins informed him Monday that they would like to swing a deal that would send Washington's first-round pick, No. 6 overall, to Chicago for the Bears' first-rounder, No. 31, and Briggs.

      When asked about such an offer Redskins owner Dan Snyder confirmed to FOXSports.com that he in fact wanted to make the move and they were waiting to talk to Chicago. In fact, Snyder spent a couple of minutes talking to Briggs, who showed up with Rosenhaus at the meeting.

      Snyder and football operations man Vinny Cerato left to find head coach Joe Gibbs regarding the deal. But before leaving Rosenhaus informed Cerato that he in fact spoke with the Bears and they were waiting an official call from the Redskins.

      Briggs told FOXSports.com earlier this month that he would never play another down again for the Bears and he was willing to sit out the 2008 season.

      Obviously many deals are discussed but fail to come to fruition and this deal could die as well. Both teams seemed to be on the same page but Gibbs also needed to sign off before an official offer was made. Plus, while Snyder said he'd work the deal Washington needs to formally reach out to Chicago and make an official offer. Washington could also in the end decide to change their minds as any trade would entail them getting Briggs signed to a long-term contract.

        Good trade for both teams really. Washington needs a couple guys on D and can get a decent LB or DE at 31.

        R Ayers - B Cofield - A Haynesworth - CJ ohnson
        J Anderson - J Beason - DJ Williams
        R Bailey - P Amukamara - R Hill - A Goodman

              Jamaal Anderson. Okoye.

              I'd hope that Washington would get one of those early seconds, and then some. Briggs for 6th overall? Uhhhhh no.

                Do you think the trade will really go down?

                  that's the equivalent of 1,000 points for briggs, or pick #16-- the bears should do that in a heartbeat! he's good, but they can replace him. . . it's almost unheard of for a team to move up that far in the 1st round. . . they could make a play for one of the top quarterbacks if they got to #6-- or take patrick willis, laron landry or okoye to add to that defense. . . . :shake:

                    What are the chances they will talk to Denver about Wilson if they get rid of Briggs?

                            Not to say that Briggs and Wilson are on the same level, but what are the chances we could pull off a similar deal with them for Wilson?

                              Snyder would find a way if he really wanted him.

                              Not sure that the Broncos will give him the chance anyway though.
