    Whiners lose fifth in draft!

    Niners forfeit fifth-round draft pick after Goodell finds them guilty of tampering with Briggs

    NEW YORK -- The San Francisco ***** have forfeited their fifth-round pick in next month's NFL draft after commissioner Roger Goodell deemed them guilty of tampering with Chicago linebacker Lance Briggs.
    Goodell also determined the teams will switch picks in the third round of the April 26-27 draft. Chicago, which had the 12th pick, will get San Francisco's seventh pick and the ***** will get Chicago's choice.
    Goodell determined that the ***** violated the NFL's anti-tampering policy by contacting Briggs' agent, Drew Rosenhaus, about his client during the 2007 season.
    Briggs, an all-Pro in 2007, had been designated as Chicago's franchise player, signing a one-year tender that meant he could not leave the Bears.
    He had been expected to leave as a free agent after last season but instead re-signed with Chicago for $36 million over six years. Briggs will earn $21.6 million in the first three years of the deal and $13 million of the contract is guaranteed.
    There had been reports of contact between the ***** and Rosenhaus last season, and the Bears filed a tampering charge with the NFL. Goodell said both teams cooperated with his investigation into the allegations.

    Martz must be pulling his hair out. Now they can't select Colt Brennan with that 5th round pick, what are they going to do?
