Would love to get Antwan Barnes or Zak DeOssie in draft as future teammate for Demeco.

that's 4 season ago at the absolute peek of his career. Barber is now a nice back-up who probably won't embarass if you're forced to start him.

I'd love to see us get a bunch of respectable guys to compete for the SLB spot. I love DeMeco at MLB and I don't have a problem (money aside) with Greenwood at WLB.

Default Re: Shawn Barber (Eagles) visiting with the Texans

I wonder if Anderson and Orr are going to make the final roster, assuming Wong is gone. I can see the benifits of having a true Sams instead of the 3-4 leftover OLBs. I guess late round draft picks will chalenge Polk and Evens for thier spots.

Do you guys think it would be possible to trade david carr and jason Babin for Lance Briggs (since he publictly stated that he will never take another snap with the bears and would rather sit out a season than play for them next year)

Or maybe Barber and Carr, if they sign Barber.

Or maybe Zgonina and Carr and Green since they traded away Thomas Jones already. But then they could just give us CedBen too.

No, I don't think so, BDiddy.

Why would they want Babin? They have a rush DE in Mark Anderson and Chicago is fine franchising Briggs....if he doesnt show up he doesnt get paid. The only thing that may interest the Bears is Carr and that is probably for a 2nd day draft pick...not a pro bowl LB...

Wow, could you imagine our Defense with Mario, Demeco, Briggs, Dunta, and then if we go D w/ our 1st rd pick? Branch/Okoye/Landry...that would be awesome.

This would be another good backup signing. It also could be a good pick up if one or two of the current starting and back LB become cap casualties.

I have a concern about Briggs: he is leaving the Bears b/c he wants to be "the man". And Urlacher is "the man." What does that say about a man's willingness to put the team above self? And what would that say about his heart if he came to the Texans and realized that a sophomore named Ryans was already our leader on d?

Just some things to think about. A divided house cannot stand.

Barber would be a solid addition. Clark's weakness is supposed to be Barber's strength...coverage

He would provide good depth. Nothing flashy, but I'm all for it if we get him at a reasonable price.

Is that why Briggs is mad??

I thought it had something to do with wanting a long term deal??

I mean 7.2 million is cool & all, but I'd much rather a $12million signing bonus plus a $7.2 million salary to go along with it. The way it stands now, Briggs could play two games next season, and his career.... could be over.
