Well, I think it's highly unlikely that you will get anything for him, just because teams know that he will eventually be on the market anyway, but I would value him at a high 2nd at most. Still, if a team can turn Deion freakin' Branch into a 1st rounder, than who knows? Also, I just don't think Briggs is a "cornerstone" type player. Obviously, I'm not the best qualified to decide that, but he seems more like a Scottie Pippen type, who excels best in the sidekicks role than a real focal point for a defense. He would be great in Az, Tampa, NO or Philly, though. I just hope he doesn't come to the East.

That leg has had it out for him since day 1.

What was the John Abraham story last year, again? Was he franchised and wanted out, or how did it work? I forget how it went, but I do remember the Jets getting a 1st round pick for him.
He got franchised, he wanted a big contract (long term) which we didn't want to give him due to injury concerns and eventually it got to the point where we didn't really want him anymore either. We would have kept him if we couldn't find a trade, but we were going to probably pull the trigger on anything better than a mid-second rounder. I was surprised we got as much as you did to be honest, but very happy nevertheless.
