What’s better than having one of the two highest-paid defensive players in the NFL?

Having both of them.

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 pulled off the move.

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

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