You know how linebacker has been a New York Giants weakness for years? They're finally doing something about it.
In October, the Los Angeles Rams signed Alec Ogletree to a four-year contract extension worth up to $42 million. Today, word broke that they will be trading him to the Giants in exchange for fourth- and sixth-round picks in this year's draft. The Giants will also get L.A.'s 2019 seventh-rounder in the deal.
Ogletree has started each of his 67 NFL games since the Rams drafted him in the first round in 2013. He had 15 defeats (plays that resulted in a turnover, loss of yardage, or third-/fourth-down stop) in 15 games last season, tied for fifth on the Rams. Aaron Donald led the team with 19.
