49ers one of three teams interested in Briggs

Mar 22, 2007 at 7:22 AM--


According to Lance Briggs' agent, Drew Rosenhaus, who appeared on the "Best Damn Sports Show Period," the San Francisco 49ers are one of three teams that have expressed interest in trading for disgruntled Chicago Bears linebacker.

The other two teams that are interested are the Washington Redskins and the NFC West rival Seattle Seahawks. However, the Bears appear to be unwilling to trade Briggs having locked him up with the franchise tag. Briggs has openly expressed his displeasure about not being able to test the free agent market.

While the interest is there, it appears unlikely that the Bears would allow a trade involving Briggs or they have been very good at denying the possibility. They were unwilling to confirm the interest for Briggs. When asked about trade interest, Seahawks team president Tim Ruskell said, "There's no truth to that whatsoever."

Last week, the San Francisco 49ers made Thomas a third-round draft pick. He was the first defender selected by the team in this year's draft.

Scot McCloughan spent two seasons as the San Francisco 49ers general manager, helping build the roster eventually taken over by Trent Baalke and Jim Harbaugh. Before that, he was the team's VP of personnel. Matt Barrows of The Athletic spoke with McCloughan to get his opinion of his former team's most recent draft class. While his pre-draft grades had Zach Wilson, whom the New York Jets selected at No. 2, rated higher than Trey Lance, the 49ers' pick, McCloughan would have personally selected Lance over Wilson. He wouldn't have, however, traded two future first-round picks to move up to get him. The inexperience at North Dakota State and the level of competition created too many unknowns. But personally, he still liked Lance more than
