    Man, we just cut Al cause he was due a 5.2 base salary, and now you wanna trade for a guy who has a 7.1mil tag on him and wasn't happy with a 6 yr 33 mil deal?!

    Briggs has played MLB before. DJ has not. They are about the same size. DJ might be a little taller.

    Briggs has also stated that he wants to be "the man" like Urlacher. If we did get Briggs, they could end up competing for the MLB spot and Briggs could win that battle.

    I don' think it will be any concern to us because I don't think we will be getting Briggs. We also won't be getting CJ. I do like the possibility of getting Jenkins, who, despite what other threads have said, is not a Ram.

    The only rumors with any chance of reality are the Jenkins rumors.

    We won't get Lance Briggs, and certainly not Calvin Johnson.

    That's why you put D.J. on the weakside, Briggs on the strongside, and Webster in the middle. Webster was Al's replacement when he was hurt, if you remember. I would like to get Briggs and not trade up to #2. If we can grab Briggs and then trade up to #14 and get Nelson or stay at #21 and grab Griffin, I would be happy. Then address the D-Line in the rest of the draft. All we need is one more pass rusher to go on the other side of Dumervil (who I think will start) and a big DT to put next to Warren.

    Trade for Briggs
    Draft:
    1st - Nelson or Griffin (#14 or #21 respectively)
    2nd - DE (Crowder, Spencer, Charles Johnson, Bazuin, Harris (Alabama)) in that order
    3rda - Marcus Thomas DT
    3rdb - Mike Walker WR/KR
    6tha - Madison Miller (DE/LB Indiana State, this kid will be a stud)
    6thb - BPA
    7th - Walter Thomas OT

    Could also trade our 3rdb and 6thb for Shaun Rogers. I would not be opposed to doing that either. Thomas would then add depth and push Warren for the starting spot next to Rogers. If not, Walker is a big, fast, athletic WR who could help us in the return game if Clark isn't the returner this year. W. Thomas also adds depth to the o-line and he's big. We get a playmaking S, pass rushing DE, a BIG DT, and add depth. What else do you want? I don't know what it would take to get Briggs so subtract those picks from the equation unless we used future picks. Maybe a 3rd this year and a 3rd or 4th for next year.

    If all of that were to happen, how would we be able to sign Calvin Johnson to a #2 salary. Broncos would be talented, but bankrupt. If we're gonna make a move, our only move should be for either Jenkins or CJ. I perfer Jenkins because we won't have to give up the house for him.

    Wasn't exactly sure how that worked. Okay, so that might not be the answer.

    However, to be completely honest, I'd rather just stay where we are at unless we can stockpile picks.
    Briggs isn't a MLB.

    Here is my take.

    First and foremost, I don't want to give up the entire Denver Bronco Organization's future for any one player. So here is what I propose.


    If we want to acquire Lance Briggs, here is what I suggest....

    We trade Ian Gold, our 2008 4th round pick, our 2007 6th round pick(176 overall), our other 2007 6th round pick(198 overall) and our 2007 7th round pick(233 overall) for Lance Briggs. This frees up cap space for Lance Briggs and means Denver fans only have to watch the NFL draft on Saturday. WHOO HOO!!

    We trade our 2007 3rd round pick(86 overall) to Carolina for Kris Jenkins. If they want more, we offer a conditional 2008 6th or 7th round pick. Nothing more. I am not extremely sold on his health, so to offer more is absurd.

    We trade our 2007 2nd round pick(56 overall), our 2008 1st round pick, and our 2010 1st round pick to Detriot for their 1st round pick(2 overall). This gives them two 1st rounders and a 2nd for their 1st rounder, and it also staggers our loss of a first rounder. This allows them to build well for at least the next 2 years. This allows us to get an outstanding playmaker in Calvin Johnson.

    Then our picks we be the following:

    1st round - 2nd overall - Calvin Johnson, WR
    1st round - 21st overall - Adam Carriker, DE, or Jammal Anderson, DE, or Anthony Spencer, DE, or Quentin Moses, DE
    3rd round - 70th overall - John Wendling, S or Eric Weddle, S

    So, although highly unlikely, how many would be satisfied with the following scenario?

    Now, if we did this, the trade of Ian Gold would free up some cap space to sign Briggs, and then we would move DJ to the Gold's old spot, Briggs at MLB, and then play Webster at DJ's old spot.



    However, to be completely honest, I'd rather just stay where we are at unless we can stockpile picks.

So how about we trade for the redskins pick then trade that for the lions pick. It would cost us most if not all our draft picks plus 1 or 2 picks next year. I know this is a long shot but just an idea.
    Saints did this same thing and it blew up in their face.
