Giants trade for Alec Ogletree to boost linebacker depth

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.

The Giants, therefore, who own the second pick in each round, protected their original fourth-round pick, the 102nd overall pick and second of the fourth-round.

Trades can't become official until the new NFL league year opens on March 14.

Ogletree, 26, signed a four-year, $42 million contract extension with the Rams in October that included $30 million in guarantees.

The Giants were in desperate need of linebackers, especially with the expectation of playing in some 3-4 fronts under new defensive coordinator James Bettcher. The addition of Ogletree helps fill one of their biggest needs.

Ogletree also infuses speed to a Giants defense that struggled badly last season.

By the way, the trade of Ogletree means the Rams officially have only have one player left on their roster from the eight picks they received in the Robert Griffin trade.

Ogletree started 15 games for the Rams in 2017 tallying 63 tackles, two sacks and an interception for the No. 2 defense in the NFL.
