Rams Trade LB Alec Ogletree To Giants For Draft Picks

The new year in the National Football League hasn't even officially gotten underway, and the Los Angeles Rams have already been one of the busiest teams when it comes to all of the moves being made, ranging from acquiring Marcus Peters to trading Robert Quinn to the Miami Dolphins.

Less than five months ago, Alec Ogletree had to feel pretty good about his chances of remaining with the Los Angeles Rams for a long, long time. ESPN first reported the development.

The Giants, therefore, who own the second pick in each round, protected their original fourth-round pick, the 102nd overall pick and second of the fourth-round. He made 95 total tackles in 15 games in 2017 as well as one sack and a forced fumble. The NFC West champion Rams also will send a seventh-round pick in 2019 to the Giants along with Ogletree, their defensive captain and last season's leading tackler.

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. He also provided leadership on the defense, both during the Rams' turbulent relocation season from St. Louis and again last season, when they ended their 12-year playoff drought.

Speaking of Johnson, he seemed pretty surprised when he heard that Ogletree had been shipped off to NY.
