The source spoke on condition of anonymity Wednesday because NFL trades can’t be announced until March 14. ESPN first reported the deal.

The NFC West champion Rams also will send a seventh-round pick in 2019 to the Giants along with Ogletree, their defensive captain and last season’s leading tackler. Los Angeles gets the Giants’ fourth-round and sixth-round picks in the 2018 draft.

Ogletree has spent his entire five-year career with the Rams. He had 95 tackles and two sacks last season.

Ogletree signed a four-year, $42 million extension with the Rams just last October.
