FOX 13 Chicago – WALDO, Wis.
(AP) With the NFL Draft less than a week away, there’s plenty of chatter about who the most likely pick is going to be.
We’re not looking for the Biggest Bad Idea.
We’ve got your NFL draft news.
Here’s the scoop from the day’s draft, starting with the picks in the NFL’s top 25 and going all the way up to the top 10.
Walgreens has won the bid to bid on the 2018 draft, according to the team’s press release.
The bid, if approved, would be a $1.5 billion offer from Walgreens that would be subject to a number of conditions, including that the NFLPA and NFL would not be represented by attorneys.
Walgens bid would be $10.7 billion if approved by the NFL, which is likely, as the company is a major player in the business.
The team is led by CEO Michael Otsch, a former NFL player who worked as the team president and chief operating officer of the New England Patriots before joining the Chicago Bears as a consultant in 2017.
The Chicago Bears bid is the most recent major bid by a major American sports company to bid for a draft pick, joining an earlier bid from Nike and the Los Angeles Lakers.
The Lakers bid was rejected by the league after it became clear that it would be worth millions of dollars.
The bid is expected to be competitive with bids from other large companies, including Nike and Target, which have also expressed interest in bidding.
But the Bears bid could be the first major bid from an American sports franchise to go public.
