NFL DRAFT TALK
So JaMarcus Russell is selected #1 by the Ray-duhz. Up next…the Detroit Lions. What do you do? Calvin Johnson and Brady Quinn are staring Matt Millen in the face. Will the Lions trade down? They could likely trade down, obtain more picks and still get Brady Quinn. And Millen would look like a genius.
As for the Bears, the Briggs situation is still unresolved. And why is that? Well when you go and do and say what Briggs has done for the last few months I’m guessing it turned off some GMs that might have wanted to trade for him. If you were a GM would you think a big, long term deal would end this behavior? Or would you worry that it would crep back up sometime down the line.
Briggs blew it. He could have made $7+ million this year, looked like a great teammate and still got a massive deal next year. Now his rep is tarnished and who knows what becomes of him. I still hope the Bears deal him. After much thought I would totally take the 6th pick from the Skins for Briggs. I trust Angelo to be able to parlay that into more picks.
