Trades can't become official until the new NFL league year opens on March 14. ESPN first reported the development.
For his part, Ogletree seems excited:
The speedy linebacker compiled 231 tackles and two sacks the past two season in L.A. Still just 26 years old, Ogletree is a massive upgrade for a mediocre Giants linebacking corps that lacked speed and playmaking ability at the second level. Ogletree brings both to New York.
L.A. shedding salary-cap space with the Ogletree and Quinn trades comes as no surprise as the Rams have a bevy of budding stars that need to get paid, including Defensive Player of the Year Aaron Donald. Trading Ogletree saves the Rams $5.2 million in cap space and recovers $10 million from his 2018 salary -- money that will aid the team's efforts to sign impending free-agent wide receiver Sammy Watkins.
