Rams Trade LB Alec Ogletree To Giants For Draft Picks

Giants trade two picks for Rams linebacker Alec Ogletree

Los Angeles will also send back a seventh-round pick.

The New York Giants have agreed to give up two 2018 draft picks for linebacker Alex Ogletree of the Rams.

Trades can't become official until the new NFL league year opens on March 14.

Instead of Quinn or Ogletree, the Chiefs received a 2018 fourth-round pick and 2019 second-round pick for Peters.

Ogletree was a first-round pick out of Georgia in 2013 and started all but one game he appeared in for the Rams since.

Ogletree, 26, signed a four-year, $42 million contract extension with the Rams in October that included $30 million in guarantees.

The New York Giants have a new linebacker.

Wednesday's acquisition of Alec Ogletree confirms what has been suspected since the Giants put general manager Dave Gettleman in charge and first-year coach coach Pat Shurmur hired defensive coordinator James Bettcher to run a 3-4 defense. He had 95 combined tackles and two sacks in 15 games last season, including a 41-yard pick-six.

The Chiefs could have probably afforded that but it would've made it hard to sign other players in the coming years. Ogletree will have cap hits of $10 million for the next three years and $9 million in 2021, the last year of his deal.
