For the 49ers the rumored interest in Bears Pro Bowl linebacker Lance Briggs persists. Reports out of Chicago said the 49ers tried to trade for Briggs before the trade deadline, which 49ers coach Mike Nolan would neither confirm nor deny. -- SF Chronicle

Lance Briggs-LB- Bears Feb. 27 - 12:46 pm et

A source close to the situation tells Profootballtalk.com that free agent Lance Briggs does not yet have a deal in place with the 49ers.
PFT is told that Briggs is considering returning to Chicago, which may have upped its proposal again. It no longer looks as if the Redskins are among the frontrunners for Briggs' services, although things can change quickly.

Calvin Pace-LB-Cardinals Feb. 27 - 1:20 pm et

In addition to DE Justin Smith and possibly LB Lance Briggs, the 49ers are expected to stongly pursue free agent LB Calvin Pace.

The Niners hope to sign either Smith or Pace, who is expected to command $14 million guaranteed. Another team interested in Pace is rumored to be the Patriots, who could shift him inside like they did Adalius Thomas in 2007.

49ers hot after LB Briggs

49ers GM Scot McCloughan said that Chicago's complaint that the 49ers "tampered" with soon-to-be free agent Lance Briggs would have no bearing on whether they pursue the linebacker. He said that would be dictated by market conditions and what they think is best for the team. The Bears' grievance remains under investigation by the league. McCloughan said, "There's nothing to it. It's just maneuvering by an organization trying to find the best way to keep their guy." -- San Jose Mercury News

I doubt it since they signed Dontarrious Thomas from the Vikings.
