Default Bears: Briggs Wants To Be Traded

Briggs doesn't seem to like the franchise tag and the 1 year deal that it entails.

http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=2788148

Found it interesting, but he would carry a hefty trade value to say the least.

Yea, he is seeing what everone else is getting in free agency and he wants to try and test it too. Dont know if he could. Texans deff couldnt afford him this year but he would be a great asset.

Default Re: Lance Briggs demands trade

Is he worthy of a second pick? As always, alot of top notch talent will slip in to the second round (Like Bennie J and Gabar Gaffney HA HA HA). Seriously, is there any other way we could get him besides giving up a draft pick?

Only if you can reach agreement on an extension... and unfortunately, I am not sure the Bears would go for a 2nd rounder only.

A mid round pick who is now crying about being franchised and paid the average of the top 5 players at his position, $7mil + per year?

Lance is no different than any player that gets franchised. being franchised isn't where the money is at and it is one more year taken off your career. you get one chance to cash in big and now he has one more year to risk injury before his big contract. plus, they say the bears have been low balling him which isn't a surprise considering the bears recent history with negotiations.

it would take a lot more than a second rounder to get lance, try two firsts. it would be a no brainier for every team if he could be had for only a second.

Its about the signing bonus, football is a violent sport where a career can be over in one play. Players don't like to be franchised because they then are left risking never getting the "BIG payday" in signing bonus money. Missing out on 30 mil would make me a little upset too, it is a business. They should change it where on top of the 7 mil a year base salary, teams should also have to throw in a additional 10 mil sign on bonus for that one year too. That would totally do away with all the bad blood between tagged players and FO's

I get your point, but it just rubs me the wrong way when a player making that much money says he just flat out refuses to play for his team...

I say we trade for him & sign him to a 50 year $200 million contract with a $10 million signing bonus.

Default Could we try to get Briggs?

Looks like Briggs is hell bent to get "unfranchised" and get out of Chicago.

http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=2788148

On a side note, Anyone willing to take a chance on Drew Stanton? With out OL, he might just be the right fit.

It would be nice. What would we give up to get him, though?

I would be willing to trade a 2nd & 3rd, & a 2nd next year for Briggs. (As long as we draft LaRon Landry for our first pick)

With our cap situation and not wanting to give up draft picks, getting Briggs it is highly unlikely.

Default Re: Could we try to get Briggs?

Prising Briggs away from Chicago would be expensive, signing Briggs even if they let him go would also be expensive.

I would think that it would be best to steer clear and address our other areas of need, rather than blowing our cap on a LB who may just be a result of the system and being part of a great defense.

Yeah, there is virtually no way we get Briggs. Maybe on Madden or something...

I like Briggs alot and he'd be awesome here in houston next to demeco. but I don't think we need to trade our DAY 1 picks away..esp that many for 1 player. In 3 years if we are 1 good linebacker away from the Superbowl...something may get done...but not in the next 2 years...imo.
