Can't blame Rams for making desperation trade to get No. 1 pick

The Los Angeles Rams will mark their first season back in California with one of the more memorable trades in recent NFL history, one that will define the franchise for years to come.

Acquiring the No. 1 pick in the 2016 draft from the Tennessee Titans looks like a desperation move. It is a desperation move. It is a home run for the Titans and a risky swing for the fences by a Rams leadership group running out of innings. That doesn't necessarily make it a terrible move for the Rams. I'd much rather be on the Titans' end of the equation, but I get the Rams' thinking.
