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

  • Giants reportedly acquire former first-round pick Alec Ogletree in trade with Rams

It looks like defensive end Robert Quinn wasn't the only player the Los Angeles Rams offered the Kansas City Chiefs in the Marcus Peters trade. After all, he had just signed a four-year, $42 million. K.C. declined and Ogletree ended up getting shipped to the New York Giants for two draft picks.

Schefter reports that the Giants are trading their fourth- and sixth round picks for Ogletree and the Rams' 2019 seventh-round selection.

His departure leaves a significant hole in their linebacker core that should be addressed at some point this offseason through free agency, draft, or trades.

About a third would be steel grades, another third other industrial products and a final third agricultural products. The list includes typically American goods such as bourbon and blue jeans, to Harley Davidson motorcycles.

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. 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.

The Chiefs could have probably afforded that but it would've made it hard to sign other players in the coming years.

Ogletree was one of the Rams most dependable players on the defensive side of the ball over his first five years in the league with the team as he had recorded 95 or more tackles four times with three campaigns topping 100 total tackles. He is due a $2 million roster bonus next week.
