I think this rejection is based on the fact that the obvious player to take Briggs place is Paul Posluszney...and since they seem to think he would be there at #31...a trade up may be worthless to them.

If they take a different position..they have no OLB..if they take Pos...they reached and wasted the pick..so throw in Rocky Mac..and they have a potential OLB and they have a higher pick to fill a different position

I guess it would have to be, as no other explanation makes sense.

6th pick is worth 1600 pts.
31st pick is worth 600 pts.

... going strictly off of that alone the trade is equivalent to the 16th pick in the draft ... I think Briggs is worth more than that. Angelo must have thought the same thing. Now I'm not sure if I would have turned down the trade or not given Briggs feelings towards playing next year in Chicago and how adamant he is about wanting a long term deal elsewhere.

However, I think the deal should be: bears swap Briggs + 2nd round pick (pick 63) for 6th overall pick. ... no swapping of first rounders and no Rocky Macintosh.

I would prefer to keep our picks and get a younger and better LB in the draft let the Bears worry about their own problems
