Bear's Blog April Fool's Joke

http://www.blogdownchicagobears.com/2010/03/31/bears-broncos-and-seahawks-talking-steep-trade-that-would-send-brandon-marshall-to-chicago/

Reports are that Brandon Marshall could be headed to Chicago as part of a budding three-way trade between Chicago, Denver and Seattle.

According to this, Denver would send a second-round pick to Seattle and Brandon Marshall to Chicago, who would ship Alex Brown to Seattle and, get this!, Greg Olsen to Denver. Denver, then, would acquire guard Rob Sims from Seattle.

“The Broncos’ interior guys haven’t panned out as anticipated and they believe Sims would spare them from having to use a first-round pick on a guard. The Seahawks want, at least, a second-round pick in return. The Bears were the third team to enter the conversation, because they’re looking to unload Alex Brown and have also indicated interest in the Broncos’ troubled receiver.”

Contrary to previous reports, the Seahawks have, in fact, been interested in Brown all along. They just were never interested in Brown-for-Sims straight up. They wanted picks. The Bears didn’t have them. But, Denver does. Now, of course, Denver wouldn’t relinquish Brandon Marshall and a second-round pick, mind you, for just Rob Sims. So, enter Greg Olsen.

Olsen was never expected to have a major role in Mike Martz’ offense, but the Bears couldn’t find a trade suitor, so they pacified the situation, brought him to workouts, and said all the right things. Olsen is said to be perfect for Josh McDaniel’s West Coast derivative offense, where he could alternate lining up at tight end and fourth receiver with Tony Scheffler.

I think in the shock of dealing with Brown’s inevitable departure, we probably all forgot about the other stories of free agency. This is amazing if it’s consumated. But, right now…I…I’m speechless.

****, too late for Denver to pull off this lop-sided trade in their favor, the Bears cut Brown today.

So true. That was painfully unfunny, and pretty much the opposite of "fun".
