Rams Trade LB Alec Ogletree to Giants for Two Draft Picks

Giants trade for Alec Ogletree to boost linebacker depth

The deal is worth $42 million, with $33 million coming in the first three years of the deal. Although the trade can't be made official until March 14, the Rams are reportedly trading him to the Giants for a fourth- and sixth-round pick.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity Wednesday because National Football League trades can't be announced until March 14.

ESPN's Adam Schefter was first to report the trade.

Ogletree has 501 combined tackles over five seasons.

It taught me that I had to learn to protect myself - and it made me stronger", she told The Guardian in February 2018. As soon as she loses the protection afforded by her relationship, the world rushes in to attack.

His departure leaves a significant hole in their linebacker core that should be addressed at some point this offseason through free agency, draft, or trades.

Ogletree also was a key player in the Rams' spotty run defense.

Ogletree, a former first-round pick who was selected with the 30th overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, will nearly certainly become an instant starter in NY. Ogletree had 95 tackles, 1 forced fumble, 1 INT, 2 tackles for loss and 10 PBUs past year for the Rams. Los Angeles will also send back a seventh-round pick. With the Giants, the 26-year-old will likely be asked to play middle linebacker, which wasn't an option in L.A. after Wade Phillips had the Rams switch to a 3-4 defense. Ogletree racked up 95 combined tackles, two sacks, 10 passes defensed, and a pick six.

The fifth-year veteran was a force for the Rams over the past two seasons. He is due a $2 million roster bonus next week.
