    a bank that realizes that in a year hes going to sign a HUGE contract?? are you kidding? he can still work out every single day and bust his ass if need be. the bears need to trade him some where. seriously.. not necessarily the giants but that would be nice.

      I fail to see how Buffalo's TWELFTH pick equals the value of a high 2nd pick, but whatever.
      The whole world loves neophyte athletic tight end Jimmy Graham from Miami with the 95th pick. "Best pick in the draft,'' one AFC coach told me. "Give him time, and in that offense, he'll be better than [Jeremy] Shockey by the start of next year.''

          living on your own or with your friends for one year is not a big deal so you can be happy. there is a vast differnce i guarantee he has the resources to gut it out for a year if need be. i doubt he would.. but still.

            Cause he said the Bears 31st and Briggs for the 12th.

            Reading. It's fundamental.

              Briggs is from California, and refers to himself as such. Even when he does the MNF he usually says what high school he is from cause he's embaressed of the University of Arizona.

                Buffalo #12(1200) Chicago #31(600) & Lance Briggs that trade values lance briggs as the same value of #31 overall depending on personal opions it could be considered a good deal

                    You know it is quite possible to make a point on a messageboard without being a complete douchebag in the process. Just a thought.

                      Eh, with how crazy the markets are getting him sitting out a year is realistic. I'm sure he would never stay on a friend's couch, that is just dumb. But my guess is that Briggs had made about 3 million in his career so far. If he isn't a complete moron with his money, he could sit on his ass in a nice apartment for a year and do nothing. Going back and playing for 7 million guaranteed is a risk of getting a career ending injury when he could probably sit a full year, not risk injury, and get 18-20 million guaranteed in 2008.

                        your asking the wrong person because i value being happy over anything else. like i said i doubt he has the balls to sit out a season.

                            Yeah good one. Cause you weren't acting like a condescending know-it-all when you thought you knew what you were talking about. Just learn to use your brain next time and it won't be an issue.

                              And, I don't buy that logic at all. There are various ways to make a point without resulting to insults, however, it seems like some people prefer that way for whatever reason they see fit.

                                Everyone may know the Briggs and Jauron connection. And both have said great things about each other, as Briggs said he would like to play for Jauron again.

                                BUT.. Did you know that before Levy took the job as GM here in Buffalo, he was one of the announcers for the Bears. And he was one of the first to say that Briggs was a superstar in the making.

                                Both the Coach and GM love Briggs, and we have a need at LB. I have a feeling that this may be a draft day type trade. The Bills will see thier choices at the #12 and possibly make a move. That or I could even see giving a next years first round pick for him with one of thier thirds
