The Los Angeles Rams are trading linebacker Alec Ogletree and a seventh-round pick to the New York Giants for a 2018 fourth-round pick and a sixth-round pick according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Trades can't become official until the new NFL league year opens on March 14. Ogletree will have cap hits of $10 million for the next three years and $9 million in 2021, the last year of his deal.

It's a surprise, since the Rams had just extended Ogletree in October.

The Ogletree trade comes less than a week after the Rams shipped Robert Quinn off to Miami.

The Rams have been one of the most active teams in the trade department this offseason. 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. 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.

A first-round pick out of Georgia in the 2013 draft, Ogletree had his best season in 2016, when he was named second-team All-Pro.

Ogletree, 26, had 95 tackles, 2.0 sacks, one interception and one forced fumble last season in 15 games, all as a starter.
