Woah! In an absolute shocker, the Los Angeles Rams have traded ILB Alec Ogletree to the New York Giants for draft picks that haven’t been disclosed yet:

This is an absolute shocker because the Rams just recently handed Ogletree a long term extension making him the NFL’s third highest paid ILB. Ogletree has struggled with tackling as a Ram, though he offered plenty of splash plays and was a leader.

Here is the update on the Rams cap situation regarding Ogletree’s trade, per Jason Fitzgerald from OverTheCap:

This leaves the Rams with Mark Barron and incumbent Cory Littleton, though they may look to make a free agency splash. The Rams continue to extend cap space whether that means re-signing their own guys, or going out into the market and finding a ILB replacement.

The compensation will be updated when known, so please stay tuned for updates.

UPDATE (With compensation):
