Giants acquire LB Alec Ogletree from Rams, report says

The front office wasn't finished by any means with the reported agreed upon trade of veteran linebacker Alec Ogletree and a seventh-round pick to the New York Giants for 2018 fourth-round and sixth-round selections.

The New York Giants have a new linebacker.

Ogletree was a first-round pick who made the NFL All-Rookie Team in 2013. He led their defense in tackles during four of his five seasons, only failing to do so in 2015 when he played in just four games due to a broken leg.

Since the start of the National Football League offseason, the Los Angeles Rams have remained one of the most active teams agreeing to a few trades involving key players on the 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 had 95 tackles, 1 forced fumble, 1 INT, 2 tackles for loss and 10 PBUs past year for the Rams.

But American sanctions against Iran remain, hindering foreign companies outside of the USA from doing business with Tehran. The deal took effect in January 2016.

The Ogletree trade comes less than a week after the Rams shipped Robert Quinn off to Miami.

Ogletree, 26, had 95 tackles, 2.0 sacks, one interception and one forced fumble last season in 15 games, all as a starter.

The Chiefs could have probably afforded that but it would've made it hard to sign other players in the coming years. They gave him $42 million, with $31.4 million guaranteed over four years.
