Despite reports earlier last week that they had not expressed interest in cranky linebacker Lance Briggs, the Washington Redskins have since changed their minds.
It is now being reported that they are attempting to make a trade. The problem is the trade is just a simple swap of first round draft picks. The Redskins currently hold the 6th pick and the Bears the 31st.
Personally, I am torn. As much as I would like to see the Bears stick it to Briggs in the end it might be best for all to get him out of here. The big problem is I don't like the price. If anything just Briggs for their first, but to throw in our first seems a bit pricey to me. If first round picks are to be swapped I think the Bears need to pull some more picks out of it. A nice second and/or third would probably be alright for me.
As for moving up to 6th as the rest of you, it would be interesting to see what Angelo can pull off. I don't think any of us really thinks he would draft from that position. If he were to trade down from there that would give the Bears 3 picks in the first 37.
