Rams agree to deal Ogletree to Giants

The Giants' season was a different story, coming in at 3-13.

The Giants reportedly are getting some help at linebacker.

The Rams agreed to trade linebacker Alec Ogletree and a 2019 seventh-round draft pick to the New York Giants for the Giants' 2018 fourth- and sixth-round draft picks, multiple media outlets reported.

Ogletree, a former first-round pick who was selected with the 30th overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, will nearly certainly become an instant starter in NY. He missed 12 games in 2015 due to injuries.

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

Here are five things to know about the Giants new middle linebacker in Ogletree. "Is he smart? Is he tough?'"

The Giants have only sent one linebacker to the Pro Bowl (Antonio Pierce in 2006) since 2002, and only picked one linebacker in the top two rounds of the draft under former general manager Jerry Reese. And they surrendered instead the fourth round's 35th pick, and the draft's 135th overall, a compensatory pick they'd been awarded based on free agents lost and gained last offseason.
