    Oh no, Mara is probably going to be pissed about this!! That's not very competitively balanced. If you are going to screw over the Redskins, you must also screw over the Cowboys. We are probably going to lose that fifth round pick now.

    Demoff had laid the groundwork for such a discussion six hours earlier, dialing Jones and telling him, "If you want to trade up to 6, consider us. We'll be reasonable. We already got such a great deal from the Redskins [in the Griffin trade] that we won't try to screw you guys."

    Now, with the Rams on the clock, Jones told Demoff he'd make the deal for Dallas' first- and second-round selections: 14th and 45th overall. The Rams' COO hung up and briefly discussed the trade with Fisher and Snead, reviewing a value chart assigning points to specific picks. Then he called Jones back and said, "Stephen, it's Kevin. Would you throw in your five? … Come on. … What will you throw in as a cherry on top?"

    Um … nothing.

    Demoff laughed. "Alright," he said, "we'll call you right back."

    I think it says a lot, that it was Stephen who took control and made the trade.
