Rams, Redskins Agree to Trade

Posted Mar 10, 2012

Rams GM Les Snead pulled off a big trade Friday after less than a month on the job.

The Rams and Redskins confirmed Saturday morning that they have agreed to terms on a blockbuster trade that could have a major, long term impact on each franchise.

With the NFL Draft more than a month away, the Rams agreed to send the No. 2 pick in that draft to Washington in exchange for a slew of picks. Those picks are expected to include Washington's first-round pick this year (No. 6 overall), next year and in 2014 as well as the Redskins second-round selection (No. 39 overall) in this year's draft.

Rams general manager Les Snead and Washington general manager Bruce Allen confirmed the deal in a joint statement released Saturday morning.

"In order to execute each of our club's plans for free agency and the upcoming draft, we have agreed to a trade between our two teams for the second pick in the 2012 draft. We will submit this trade to the NFL for approval," the statement said.

The deal can't become official until the new league year begins at 3 p.m. central on Tuesday.
