Bears Reject Briggs Deal

Jay Glazer of Fox Sports is reporting that Bears' GM Jerry Angelo called the Redskins today, asked to speak to the GM, and ended up being transferred through the phone system for a few hours. Eventually he got fed up and told a secretary they were rejecting the Redskins offer to swap first round picks in exchange for OLB Lance Briggs.

This does not rule out the possibility that the Bears would accept a "sweetener" from the Skins in addition to the 6th pick.

And so the dream apparently dies. Now the Skins will have to focus on their real priority: finding a way to draft JeMarcus Russell so they don't have to rely on Jason Campbell next year.
