According to reports, the Giants gave up their fourth- and sixth-round draft picks this spring in return for Ogletree and the Rams' seventh-round selection in 2019.

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.

Less than five months ago, Alec Ogletree had to feel pretty good about his chances of remaining with the Los Angeles Rams for a long, long time. In the meantime, this deal opens up an additional $5.2 million in salary cap space that the Rams can use to help their efforts in re-signing wide receiver Sammy Watkins, and Trumaine Johnson.

According to a police statement, the Turpin children were allegedly kept in dirty and foul-smelling surroundings. The girl also allegedly has an Instagram account that included selfies and pictures of Justin Bieber.

Speaking of Johnson, he seemed pretty surprised when he heard that Ogletree had been shipped off to NY. But when seeing what Los Angeles will receive from NY in return for Ogletree, it makes the trade even more frustrating for fans to accept.

Ogletree was a first-round pick out of Georgia in 2013 and started all but one game he appeared in for the Rams since. Remember, guys like center Mitch Morse, defensive lineman Chris Jones, linebacker Reggie Ragland, cornerback Kendall Fuller and receiver Tyreek Hill will all need new contracts in the next couple years.

The fifth-year veteran was a force for the Rams over the past two seasons.
