Giants acquire Alec Ogletree from Rams

K.C. declined and Ogletree ended up getting shipped to the New York Giants for two draft picks. ESPN first reported the deal.

Here are five things to know about the Giants new middle linebacker in Ogletree. Ogletree had 95 tackles, 1 forced fumble, 1 INT, 2 tackles for loss and 10 PBUs a year ago for the Rams.

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, 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.

Since the start of the National Football League offseason, the Los Angeles Rams have remained one of the most active teams agreeing to a few trades involving key players on the defense.

Ogletree started 15 games for the Rams in 2017 tallying 63 tackles, two sacks and an interception for the No. 2 defense in the NFL.

The Rams agreed last month to acquire cornerback Marcus Peters in a trade with Kansas City, and Los Angeles also used its franchise tag on safety Lamarcus Joyner.

Despite their overall success last season under coach Sean McVay, the Rams clearly are reconfiguring their defense in Phillips' preferred image while clearing salary cap space.
