Rams RB Todd Gurley is not happy about the Alec Ogletree trade

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Rams have traded inside linebacker Alec Ogletree to the New York Giants for two picks in the 2018 NFL Draft, a fourth-round pick and a sixth-round pick. In the deal, the Giants will get Ogletree and a 2019 seventh-round pick, while the Rams will walk away with a fourth-round and a sixth-round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. On the other hand, is in line with what the Rams have been doing this offseason, which is clearing up as much space as possible under the salary cap. Tagging Joyner also complicates things on the Rams being able to retain wide receiver Sammy Watkins this spring in free agency. It has seen them already making the move to acquire All-Pro cornerback Marcus Peters from the Kansas City Chiefs and ship Pro Bowl defensive end/outside linebacker Robert Quinn to the Miami Dolphins. The Rams politely declined, appearing to keep him around for 2018. Los Angeles finished last season fifth-worst in the National Football League at stopping the run, allowing 122.3 yards rushing per game and frequently struggling with stops between the tackles, where Ogletree needed to shine.

Ogletree, a former first-round pick who was selected with the 30th overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, will nearly certainly become an instant starter in NY.

MDMK founder Vaiko warned of "retaliation" by his party workers if any one caused damage to statues of Ramasamy. The BJP leader, however, deleted the Facebook post after facing huge backlash in Tamil Nadu.

By obtaining Ogletree, the Giants are plugging a major hole once defense that they've had for years at middle linebacker. He also provided leadership on the defense, both during the Rams' turbulent relocation season from St. Louis and again last season, when they ended their 12-year playoff drought. He played 67 games over five seasons, missing all but four in 2015 with a broken fibula.
