The Rams agreed to trade linebacker Alec Ogletree to the Giants on Wednesday and that will mean an end to a five-year run with the franchise for Ogletree once the trade becomes official on March 14.

Ogletree arrived as the 30th pick of the 2013 draft, which the Rams acquired after they traded down from the No. 22 spot. That pick was originally obtained from the Redskins in the trade that netted them Robert Griffin III with the second overall pick in 2012.

The Redskins sent three first-round picks and a second-round pick to the Rams in that trade and the Rams turned those picks into eight players through a series of trades in the 2012, 2013 and 2014 drafts. With Ogletree headed for the Giants, defensive tackle Michael Brockers will be the last of the players acquired with those picks on the team’s roster.

Ogletree will be playing with one of the others — cornerback Janoris Jenkins — on the Giants. Running back Isaiah Pead and wide receiver Stedman Bailey both had their careers cut short by off-field injuries while tackle Greg Robinson, running back Zac Stacy and offensive lineman Rokevious Watkins never panned out in either St. Louis or Los Angeles.

  1. And the coaches are gone too. And the Rams have relocated. The only thing that remains is Washington’s offensive logo…

  2. Brockers was the best one.

    RG3 trade was a missed opportunity for the Rams, but really, we overhype the draft. Most of of the players in it aren’t going to be anything special.

  3. Loved how so many fans claimed the Rams won this trade, they never saw over .500 till 2017 after just about everyone they got in the trade was gone.. Meanwhile Griffin’s been gone for 3 years now and Washington won 2 division titles..

    Lets just say there was no winner and it was a wash.. Rg3 never panned out and the Rams never did anything with those picks.

    But its the way we always look at these trades that’s more mind boggling.. Everyone says the Redskins lost in this trade, meanwhile with the Ricky Williams deal in ’99 they sent the house to Washington to get him.

    Ricky didn’t bring the wins, but Washington did NOTHING with the picks they got either, but the narrative will always be the Saints gave up too much, not the fact that Washington didn’t build a dynasty with those picks..

    Maybe you forgot who we drafted that year. The redskins used the extra picks to trade back into the 7th pick With the first pick in round 1, then picked Champ Bailey with the 7th pick. Also used the extra picks to move up and select Jan Janson RT. That set the redskins up at LT and RT for 10 years, while Bailey was a beast from day one. Not sure you say we did nothing with those picks. All that was just in the first two roundds, traded away other picks for picks in 2000 draft.
