Did Rams make the right call trading Alec Ogletree to Giants?

Did Rams make the right call trading Alec Ogletree to Giants?

Ogletree had a cap hit of roughly $10 million in 2018 and the Rams can now use that money to try and extend several of their key players over the next few months, including Aaron Donald.

The New York Giants have agreed to give up two 2018 draft picks for linebacker Alex Ogletree of the Rams. ESPN first reported the development.

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 signed a four-year contract worth $42.75 million that carries through the 2021 season but has an out after the 2019 season, according to spotrac.com.

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

Ogletree has 501 combined tackles over five seasons. With the Giants, the 26-year-old will likely be asked to play middle linebacker, which wasn't an option in L.A. after Wade Phillips had the Rams switch to a 3-4 defense. 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.

The Giants have traded for Alec Ogletree of the Los Angeles Rams. He was one of the leaders on the defense, and was voted as a captain the past two seasons.
