    Man giving up Thomas Jones to move up 26 spots in the draft, I think the platoon proved this past season to be a quite effective tool.

    What an odd decision. Maybe if the Jets kicke din a 4th or 5h rounder, too.

    You give up a pretty good RB and you don't even gain an additional pick/player? With free agent contracts going crazy these days, you would think a starting RB would be worth at least one player.

    I really don't understand it either. I don't think the Bears got enough out of this deal..but at the same time, Thomas Jones wont be good for too much longer. This is just a move to give the Jets young guys a chance to develop some more. I think the real reason the Bears traded him was because they felt Benson was ready to fill in as a starter and Thomas Jones probably would not have appreciated that too much.

    I'm reserving judgment until I see what the Bears do with the pick. Moving up 26 spots in the 2nd round isn't exactly meaningless. And it's possible the Bears could package their 31st pick along with this pick to move up.

    The Tribune also said Lance Briggs was on the block.

    He's the one guy on the Bears' defense that could possibly be an upgrade for the Steelers' defense. I'd like to see *that* trade happen.
    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you

    Would cost quite a bit to attain him. Hopefully the Pats nab him, they've gone crazy this year in the FA and grabbed some of the best guys available. Whoever gets Briggs is going to have to sign him to a pretty big contract to keep him happy.

    I heard on ESPN Radiothat the Jets have some money to play with in th coming years. Getting Briggs would make our defeat of the Patriots that much easier. But we will probably spend it on a Cornerback, which is our next most immediate need.

    Moses, it would cost a lot to get Briggs in terms of salary, but the trade would probably be reasonable.

    I'd like to see him on the weakside and move Clark Hagaans to the strong side to replace J-Peezy.
