REPORT: Rams Were ‘Aggressively Trying To Trade’ For Khalil Mack Before Bears Deal

Could you imagine if?

Los Angeles Rams executive vice president of football operations Kevin Demoff said Wednesday that the team attempted to trade for Khalil Mack before the Chicago Bears struck a deal with the Raiders:

“We offered a pretty aggressive package and they came back and said, ‘We just think you’re going to pick too low,'” Demoff told Gary KleinĀ of theĀ Los Angeles Times.

The Bears traded their 2019 and 2020 first round picks along with their 2020 third-round picks and 2019 sixth round pick in exchange for Mack, a 2020 second round pick and a 2020 conditional fifth-round pick.

Meanwhile, the Los Angeles Rams have been busy this offseason adding top defensive talents like Marcus Peters, Aqib Talib and Ndamukong Suh. The team also traded for WR Brandin Cooks and finally struck a record-setting contract extension with Aaron Donald.
