Redskins | Briggs trade talks back on

Jason La Canfora, of the Washington Post, reports the Washington Redskins are still pursuing Chicago Bears LB Lance Briggs and a deal may be done before or during the 2007 NFL Draft. The chances that the trade will occur are "50-50," according to a source with knowledge of the situation. The two teams have discussed different trade scenarios, but the Redskins refuse to add LB Rocky McIntosh or extra draft picks in the deal. The trade originally offered would most likely be the one that would occur. The Redskins would receive Briggs and the 31st overall pick, while the Bears would receive the sixth overall pick. If the trade occurs, the Redskins would look to draft University of Texas CB Aaron Ross, University of Texas S Michael Griffin or University of Oklahoma LB Rufus Alexander.
