Rams trading LB Ogletree to Giants

The deal, which opens approximately $5.2 million in cap space for the Rams, can not become official until the league year begins on March 14.

NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Wednesday the Rams have agreed to trade linebacker Alec Ogletree and a 2019 seventh-round draft pick to the New York Giants for 2018 fourth- and sixth-round selections, according to a source informed of the swap. He compiled 507 combined tackles and 5.5 sacks.

He was named to the All-Rookie team in 2013.

The New York Giants have a new linebacker.

The Rams have spent this offseason dealing away players that don't fit Wade Phillips' 3-4 defense. 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. Ogletree has four years left on his contract with a $10 million cap hit each year in 2018 through 2020 and a $9 million hit in 2021.

It looks like defensive end Robert Quinn wasn't the only player the Los Angeles Rams offered the Kansas City Chiefs in the Marcus Peters trade. Los Angeles finished last season fifth-worst in the National Football League at stopping the run, allowing 122.3 yards rushing per game and frequently struggling with stops between the tackles, where Ogletree needed to shine.

The fifth-year veteran was a force for the Rams over the past two seasons.
