Clearing Up The Briggs Trade
I tried to make this clear in the story I did last night, but I think in the final edit maybe it was not clear enough.
The Skins have held firm - to their credit, finally - on their original offer to flop draft picks for Briggs.
Rocky is no longer part of the deal since the Skins rejected that offer weeks ago. The Bears have not asked for him again and instead in recent days asked for an additional draft pick in the deal. The skins, again, said no, and stuck to their orignal offer.
Like the story last night said, the Bears are believed by some to ultimately be willing to take that original offer and move on. Could happen today. Could happen tomorrow. Could happen never.
In the meantime both the Skins and Bears are exploring other options and talking to other teams. In he end, if the Bears do relent and take the original offer from the Skins, I would imagine they might want to get that done today, so they would know that they have the sixth pick and would not likely want to wait for the Skins to get on the clock at 6 Sat. and perhaps get a better offer.
And, the Skins would likely want to have an agreement to do the deal tomorrow if nothing better comes along for their pick. That issue in the end might be what kills it off, should the sides disagree on when to actually execute it.
