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.
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. 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.
The Rams have been one of the most active teams in the trade department this offseason.
'The Bachelor' finale: Arie Luyendyk Jr. breaks off engagement in shocking twist
ARIE: I kept waking up and going to bed thinking of her and pushing back those feelings and trying to see if it work for us. Kufrin is scheduled to appear, along with the rest of the "Bachelor" crew, on ABC's " After the Final Rose " Tuesday night.
Ogletree has spent his entire five-year National Football League career with the Rams, who drafted him out of Georgia in the first round in 2013.
The Giants are likely to switch from a 4-3 defense to a 3-4 under new defensive coordinator James Bettcher, so they need linebackers.
The fifth-year veteran was a force for the Rams over the past two seasons. He made 95 total tackles in 15 games in 2017 as well as one sack and a forced fumble.
