I really don't know why this is news since it basically makes a point and then makes that point meaningless, but it is about the only Bears news out there.
The proposed/rumored/wished for/prayed against that the Bears will trade Briggs and the #31 to the Redskins for the #6 pick has been turned down....at least for this week.
The Bears current thinking is that they are not interested in moving up that high. The estimated pay off to the player selected there is expected to be about twice what the 1 year franchise deal that Briggs would get.
The Bears will apparently rethink about the trade once the Owner's Meeting is concluded.
