Giants trade for Alec Ogletree to boost linebacker depth

According to, the Rams are shipping linebacker Alec Ogletree to the Giants in a trade that also involves multiple draft choices. He led their defense in tackles during four of his five seasons, only failing to do so in 2015 when he played in just four games due to a broken leg.

Ogletree signed a four-year extension with the Rams in October.

West Virginia teachers: No raise, no school; strike goes on
While saying she is "very supportive" of the teachers, Carty said she is anxious about the students during the strike. Teachers are exhausted of not having the supports and funding so they can do their jobs adequately in the classroom.

The Ogletree trade comes less than a week after the Rams shipped Robert Quinn off to Miami.

Ogletree will fill the Giants' need for quality veteran linebackers as they rebuild from their 3-13 season, arguably the worst in franchise history.

Trump also shelled out $25 million in settling lawsuits that alleged his Trump University real estate courses defrauded students. Trump fared better in Forbes's ranking than in Bloomberg's billionaires list, which put his net worth at 2.86bn dollars.

Ogletree, 26, had 95 tackles, 2.0 sacks, one interception and one forced fumble last season in 15 games, all as a starter. Devon Kennard and Jonathan Casillas, both of whom were starting linebackers for the Giants in 2017, are scheduled to become free agent later this month. Ogletree will have cap hits of $10 million for the next three years and $9 million in 2021, the last year of his deal.

The new year in the National Football League hasn't even officially gotten underway, and the Los Angeles Rams have already been one of the busiest teams when it comes to all of the moves being made, ranging from acquiring Marcus Peters to trading Robert Quinn to the Miami Dolphins.
