2012 NFL Draft: Did The Rams Agree To Trade The Second Pick? Depends On What Your Definition Of "Is" Is

Everyone is holding their breath to see whether or not the St. Louis Rams have traded the second pick in the NFL Draft.

The St. Louis Rams have traded their second overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN. Whether the Rams have agreed to a deal or not remains to be seen. A team representative would neither confirm nor deny Schefter's report when asked by TST whether or not Schefter's report indicated a deal had been struck.

All we can do is parse the semiotics of Schefter's tweet. Join us after the jump as we dust off that PhD in post-structuralism (note: we do not have a PhD in that field ... or any other).

Here is Schefter's tweet in full:

That the Rams are looking to trade the pick is hardly news. Peter King discussed the potential for a deal in his Monday Morning Quarterback column at SI.com.

King discussed the possibilities with Rams COO Kevin Demoff, who noted three distinct windows for making a deal, windows that cover pretty much every day between now and when time expires for the second pick on April 26.

One of those windows cited specifically by Demoff covered the Combine to the start of free agency.

A report on Friday said that the Rams were in preliminary discussions with the Washington Redskins to trade the pick. The price mentioned in that report included Washington's first three picks this year and an early pick in 2013. King suggested that trading for Griffin would fetch even more, up to five picks, including Washington's first two picks in 2013.

King's column also said, "the Rams will trade the pick."

So here we are. Will the Rams trade the pick? Or have they already agreed to trade the pick?

We should know by April 26.
