SHARE Goodell finds Niners guilty of tampering; Bears move up in 3rd round

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell ruled Monday that the San Francisco 49ers were guilty of tampering with linebacker Lance Briggs last season.

The Bears, as a result, will now have the seventh pick in the third round of the April draft. Goodell stripped the Niners of their fifth-round pick and forced them to switch positions with the Bears in the third round. The Bears were to select 12th in the third round. The Bears do not receive the fifth-round pick from San Francisco.

“We are appreciative of the efforts of the league office on this matter and support the Commissioners decision,” Bears CEO Ted Phillips said.
