2012 NFL Trade Rumors: Rams Get Three First-Round Picks And A Second-Round Pick In 2012 From Washington

The St. Louis Rams needed some positive headlines. Between Gregg Williams' bounty scandal and the ongoing lease negotiations, fans were getting a little edgy for something different. They got that on Friday night when news broke that the Rams had agreed in principal to a big trade with the Washington Redskins for the second overall pick in the draft.

St. Louis received Washington's sixth pick this year and their first-round picks in 2013 and 2014 as well as Washington's second-round pick this year. All that for moving up four spots in the draft.

For the Rams, that's a prime ticket to a bright future. They have two first-round picks in the two drafts after this one. Two chances in 2013 and 2014 to added bona fide starters to their roster ... at cut rate rookie prices. The team was already in good shape with the cap in those year, projecting some $30 million in space.

Jeff Fisher chose the Rams because of their unique position to reshape the franchise, to finally change its direction after years in the wilderness. This is a giant leap forward in that process.
