Giants Acquire Alec Ogletree In Trade With Rams

Less than five months ago, Alec Ogletree had to feel pretty good about his chances of remaining with the Los Angeles Rams for a long, long time.

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. ESPN first reported the development.

The fourth-round pick the Rams will receive is the Giants' second selection of that round and is a compensatory pick. The NFC West champion Rams also will send a seventh-round pick in 2019 to the Giants along with Ogletree, their defensive captain and last season's leading tackler.

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 had 95 tackles, 1 forced fumble, 1 INT, 2 tackles for loss and 10 PBUs previous year for the Rams.

The Rams made the playoffs past year for the first time since 2004, finishing the regular season at 11-5.

Obviously, this move was made to clear up some salary cap space for the Rams after they rewarded him with a hefty four-year, $42 million extension in the middle of last season, and there are other players, mainly Aaron Donald, who will be looking for a big payday soon. 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.
