Okay, I can't wait for the season to start up again. Courtesy of Fox Sports...

The Redskins are appearantly making a vie to get Lance Briggs away from the Bears, offering their first round pick, 6th overall, for the Bears first round pick, 31st overall, and Briggs.

I doubt it's likely to go down.

The Bills traded away Takeo Spikes and Kelly Holcomb to the Eagles for Darwin Walker and a conditional pick in 2008.

I guess Buffalo isn't trying to build?

The Jets signed DE Andre Wadsworth, who's been out of football since 2000 from a severe knee injury. Wadsworth, 32, was the 3rd pick overall in the '98 draft.

I'm really scratching my head on this one, best of luck to the guy.



Hold nothing sacred and you'll never be dissapointed. Especially not this statement.

Headline locally is that Rosenhaus (oh right, Briggs *wink*) has already moved off his "will never, never, ever, ever play another down for the Bears" to "will play only the last six games". I thought there was some requirement like that for the player to get credit toward eventual unrestricted free agency. I'd be interested in knowing whether or not a team could continue to fine someone from training camp all the way through week 10, otherwise it seems you'd be paying top dollar for 6 weeks of sub-par (a player not in 'game shape') play?

The proposed trade sounds plenty fair to the Bears on face value, using the Parcells handy-dandy draft chart, a move from 31 to 6 is the equivalent of getting the #16 overall pick for a player with four years of pro wear-and-tear. And I suspect only the Redskins would make such a Daniel Snyderish move. The problem here is that the Bears plan is pretty obviously to draft a replacement this year, someone who can play Will for them in '08.

I suppose another consideration is since this all started because of the Bears trying to cap-manage, and you'd have to pay a #6 quite a bit more than a #31 .. I can see a scenario where even if GM Angelo considers this, he may want to wait until draft day to see if a particular player he wants is on the board?

You can only fine someone if they're under contract. If he doesn't sign the contract until Week 10, you can't fine him.

Of course, this doesn't mean that the Bears can't tag him AGAIN next year. Or the year after that, too (the third year requires he be paid the average of the top 5 players in the league, not just at his position).
