Washington looks to acquire Briggs is reporting that the Washington Redskins are trying to acquire Lance Briggs from the Chicago Bears. The Redskins are set to offer their first round pick (6th overall) to the Bears for Briggs and the Bears first rounder (31st overall).

Wow, if the bears can get something instead of letting him go for nothing next year, then why not?

As for Briggs, Rosey, and Snyder...they seem like a match in money heaven.

The Bears better feel blessed (and lucky) that they recieved a trade offer for Briggs. They would have been looking to release him and now they are being offered a 6th pick in the first round? That's unheared of. Also, everyone must remember that they were in the Superbowl last year and for the superbowl loser to receive the 6th Pick in the first round in incridible. So that means they can just draft a top-notch linebacker to replace him. The only person that should be worried with this trade is Rex Grossman. If The bears have the 6th pick in the first round and Brady Quinn or JaMarcus Russel (perferably Russel) were available or a higher pick was offered in a trade...his days as a bear would be over.

Its good if a) they are able to move down and get multi-picks/this being a two for one deal for Washington b)whatever ther first pick is it turns out to be is a pro bowler which is 50/50 historicly

The Skins #6 overall pick is viewed (correctly in my opinion), as being more of a liability than an asset by the Bears front office. The only guy who the Bears would have any interest in at the top of the draft is Joe Thomas (OT-Wisconsin), and he projects to be long gone by the 6th pick. That would leave the Bears overpaying for someone who doesn't fill any obvious need and impacting their cap flexibility severely down the road.

Look for the Bears to counter offer for multiple lower picks over the next two years and one of Washington's current linebackers in return.

IT's a great deal to the skins cause they get a pro bowler and 31st pick. To the bears though they get a 6th pick with huge pool of talent but with risk. it is possible to get joe thomas cause i see him falling to #5 to cardinals. At the 6th pick you have talent like alan branch, ted ginn jr, amobi okoye, gaines adams, jamaal anderson,levi brown, brady quinn(maybe), and others. the only problem is the risk that one of those could be a bust. If the deal does happen I see the bears selecting Branch or okoye , cause they lost tank johnson, gaine adams. might as well upgrade that defense, or an offensive tackle. ted ginn is a possiblity but they have hester and gin is only good at returning punts and not running receiving routes very well.

Okay a few things.. One for the bears front office and Jerry Angelo, they do not want to pay the money that the 6th pick in the draft commands. As for the rumor that Joe Thomas somehow will slide to them... there is no way this will happen.. Joe Thomas will be gone by the 5th pick to Arizona, a team who's offensive line is AWFUL and Joe Thomas is the best Lineman in the draft. Amobi Okoye makes sense because he has the atheletic ability to fit in their defensive system, as would Gaines Adams but rumor is he will get picked by the Lions at Number 2 who are afraid to pick Calvin Johnson. Alan Branch, however is too big to be one of their tackles, and not athletic enough. The bears like quick DT's who can rush the passer- a la Tommie Harris. The bears also dont like how this deal got to the media before it got to them. Lastly the bears are a very cheap franchise, and they wont want to dish out money to a risk. I dont see this deal getting done. Lastly, this deal sets a precendent to other bears such as nathan vasher who are trying to get a contract extension.

This deal doesn't make much sense for the Skins other than Danny Boy gets to make another splash and get yet another 'big name' player.

Did they learn anything from the Archuleta fiasco? (of course they didn't - they're Snyder's Skins)

Not only that - they traded up to get Rocky McIntosh last year, and already they want to replace him with Briggs??

Why can't the Skins just stay put and draft somebody for the D-Line?? that's what they desperately need, and the way the draft is gonna shake out, they are basically gonna get second crack at all the D-Line prospects - Arizona will take one of them and then the Skins can pick from the rest...

I agree with trading Briggs but straight up, not for our 31st pick and Briggs. Washington has to sweeten the deal.
