Giants Acquire Alec Ogletree From Rams

Giants trade for Alec Ogletree to boost linebacker depth Rams Trade LB Alec Ogletree To Giants For Draft Picks

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.

On Wednesday, the New York Giants pulled off a stunner of a trade to shore up their defense, acquiring linebacker Alec Ogletree from the Los Angeles Rams in exchange for a fourth-round pick and a sixth-round round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft.

The trade can not be officially announced until March 14, when the league year begins.

The Giants have not valued linebackers highly in the past, but a new regime is in charge.

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

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

On the Rams' end, the trade is somewhat surprising, and that's because they just signed Ogletree to a four-year, $42 million extension in October.

Ogletree, 26, has been highly productive over the past five seasons, earning 501 tackles, six interceptions, 12 forced fumbles and two touchdowns in 67 starts.

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.

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