Alec Ogletree to the New York Giants when looking at everything the linebacker's done for the defense throughout his career.

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.

The Giants also obtained the Rams' 2019 seventh-round pick in the deal.


The Rams have spent this offseason dealing away players that don't fit Wade Phillips' 3-4 defense.

For the second time in less than a week, the Rams have pulled off a trade involving one of their former first-round draft picks.

Ogletree, 26, has been highly productive over the past five seasons, earning 501 tackles, six interceptions, 12 forced fumbles and two touchdowns in 67 starts.


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

Ogletree, 26, entering his sixth National Football League season out of Georgia, improves a thin Giants linebacking corps that needs to add speed, athleticism and versatility in Bettcher's new 3-4, blitz-heavy scheme. Those moves likely mean top cornerback Trumaine Johnson will leave as a free agent. They gave him $42 million, with $31.4 million guaranteed over four years. He is due a $2 million roster bonus next week.
