Our (Possible) Starting Middle Linebacker for 2012



So, if i told you ive found the solution to finding a Middle Linebacker to surplant Joe Mays would you be interested? we wouldnt obtain this player via free agency or the draft, rather via a trade. The player i have in mind is a seven-time pro bowl selection, had over 100 tackles last season, played every single down on defense last season(one of only 6 non-offensive linemen players to do so), and with his current contract would only cost us 3.75 million next year. Now youre probably saying, "Okay sounds too good to be true. What team would be willing to get rid of a player like that?"

Ill give you a few more hints. The said player requested a trade due to his contract, but his organization denied his request. Instead of holding out or whining about not getting his way, this player went out and showed why he deserved more money. The said player is a linebacker for Jay Cutler's current team, Da Bears. If you said Brian Urlacher, you'd be wrong...

its none other than Lance Briggs. Briggs requested a trade from the Bears a few months ago but the GM in Chicago denied him his trade. So, Lance went out and had a pro-bowl season and never said another word about a trade, but never withdrew his trade request. This man has only missed 4 games in his 9 seasons, and is so versatile that he played EVERY DOWN OF DEFENSE LAST YEAR!

If the Bears and Briggs cannot reconcile their differences, I could see the Bears shopping him a bit. Im not sure what we would have to give up to get him, but even at 31 years old i believe this man would be a must have.

I think our best option would be to offer the Bears our 2012 3rd round Draft pick with a conditional pick in 2013.
