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

However, as surprising as both of those trades were to see happen, it's safe to say that nothing tops the team's decision to send Alec Ogletree to the New York Giants when looking at everything the linebacker's done for the defense throughout his career.

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.

Pugh, who was the Giants' first-round pick from that draft, went 11 picks ahead of Ogletree and was selected as the 19th overall pick.

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. Ogletree has four years left on his contract with a $10 million cap hit each year in 2018 through 2020 and a $9 million hit in 2021.




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 Rams made the playoffs a year ago for the first time since 2004, finishing the regular season at 11-5.

While Ogletree is a speedy linebacker who has been quite productive, he has been an inconsistent tackler at times, and he never appeared to be an ideal fit in Phillips' defense.
