The Beat DFW Daily Video


What a bold move. What an aggressive decision once the Rams called around noon Thursday to suggest they wanted to move down.

Let’s be honest — we ain’t seen a move like this since Jimmy Johnson controlled the Cowboys’ draft room.

Understand, normally, talking about the good old days when Jimmy and Jerry dominated the NFL bores me because it’s ancient history. It has been 20 years. It’s way past time to move on.

Trading for Claiborne, however, is a deal worthy of a one-day pass to reminisce about the time when Jimmy and Jerry controlled the draft.

Just so you know, Claiborne was the highest-rated defensive player on the Cowboys’ draft board. Only Andrew Luck ranked higher overall.
