Los Angeles Rams inside linebacker Alec Ogletree leave

The New York Giants have acquired linebacker Alec Ogletree in a trade with the Los Angeles Rams, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. 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.

By obtaining Ogletree, the Giants are plugging a major hole once defense that they've had for years at middle linebacker.

Ogletree was drafted as the 30 overall pick of the first round in the 2013 draft.

Ogletree signed a four-year extension with the Rams in October. Devon Kennard and Jonathan Casillas, both of whom were starting linebackers for the Giants in 2017, are scheduled to become free agent later this month. Ogletree racked up 95 combined tackles, two sacks, 10 passes defensed, and a pick six.

Co-host Joe Scarborough said he just felt sorry for Nunberg. "They want me in there for grand jury on Friday". White House officials on Monday attacked his credibility and characterized his media appearances as unhinged.

The Giants had two fourth-round picks in the upcoming draft, including a compensatory selection.

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.

The fifth-year veteran was a force for the Rams over the past two seasons. Besides dealing away Ogletree and Quinn, they were also involved in a third trade that brought Marcus Peters to Los Angeles.
