SHARE Redskins reportedly interested in Briggs, Berrian

Word out of Washington is the Redskins could be interested in Pro Bowl linebacker Lance Briggs … again.

The Redskins swung and missed angling for Briggs last March when the Bears declined to trade the linebacker and the 31st overall pick in the draft for the No. 6 pick which GM Jerry Angelo would have used to select LSU safety LaRon Landry. Rumors are that the Bears tried to get Washington to add linebacker Rocky McIntosh to the deal but the Redskins balked.

Briggs will become an unrestricted free agent March 1, and the Washington Post reports the Redskins could be targeting him and Bears wide receiver Bernard Berrian. Of course, thats after Washington clears up its salary-cap situation. The Bears are in a strong position in terms of the cap.
