Giants acquire Alec Ogletree from Rams

Giants trade two picks for Rams linebacker AlecĀ Ogletree

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 Rams agreed to trade linebacker Alec Ogletree and a 2019 seventh-round draft pick to the New York Giants for the Giants' 2018 fourth- and sixth-round draft picks, multiple media outlets reported.

Ogletree has been durable and consistent but his $10 million cap hit is likely the driving force behind the Rams decision to send him off to Big Blue.

With this trade, the Giants address one of their many glaring weaknesses.

Following the surgery, however, doctors stressed that there was no friction between PSG and Brazil's federation, the CBF.

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.

By obtaining Ogletree, the Giants are plugging a major hole once defense that they've had for years at middle linebacker.

Oglretree was in the same draft class as Justin Pugh, but Ogletree was the 30th overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.

The fifth-year veteran was a force for the Rams over the past two seasons. Ogletree had 95 tackles, 1 forced fumble, 1 INT, 2 tackles for loss and 10 PBUs previous year for the Rams.
