Giants acquire LB Ogletree from Rams for draft picks

Mandatory Credit Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

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.

The Giants acquired Ogletree and a seventh-round pick from the Rams in exchange for one of their two fourth-round picks and a sixth-round pick in the upcoming NFL Draft, according to multiple reports.

Trades can't become official until the new NFL league year opens on March 14. He compiled 507 combined tackles and 5.5 sacks.

A first-round pick out of Georgia in the 2013 draft, Ogletree had his best season in 2016, when he was named second-team All-Pro.

Giants general manager Dave Gettleman said at the NFL Combine that it is hard to evaluate college linebackers because of the way the game has changed at that level.

Ogletree had spent his entire career with the Rams up to this point.

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.

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.

The Giants have traded for Alec Ogletree of the Los Angeles Rams.

Ogletree signed a four-year extension with the Rams in October. He is due a $2 million roster bonus next week.
