Giants acquire Alec Ogletree from Rams

Linebacker Alec Ogletree will be headed to the Giants in a trade

Ogletree signed a four-year contract worth $42.75 million that carries through the 2021 season but has an out after the 2019 season, according to 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 fourth-round pick the Rams will receive is the Giants' second selection of that round and is a compensatory pick.

Trump jokes about low ratings for Oscars broadcast
As of Wednesday morning, Trump's tweet had racked up 184,000 of the little hearts, while Kimmel's tally was at 558,000. Soon after, Kimmel responded on Twitter, "Thanks, lowest rated President in HISTORY".

With the Giants, the 26-year-old will likely be asked to play middle linebacker, which wasn't an option in L.A. after Wade Phillips had the Rams switch to a 3-4 defense. Two of the team's three starters at linebacker from last season, Devon Kennard and Jonathan Casillas, are set to become free agents. Ogletree should help fill that void.

Ogletree has 501 combined tackles over five seasons. The Giants have struggled badly to cover tight ends the past few years.

Hawking argued that before the Big Bang , real ordinary time was replaced by imaginary time and was in a bent form. According to Hawking's theories , this means that the universe literally did not exist before the Big Bang .

By the way, the trade of Ogletree means the Rams officially have only have one player left on their roster from the eight picks they received in the Robert Griffin trade.

In his fifth National Football League season, Ogletree accounted for 63 tackles, 2 sacks, 10 pass breakups and 1 interception this past year.
