The Rams traded linebacker Alec Ogletree to the Giants on Wednesday for two 2018 draft picks, according to ESPN.

It looks like defensive end Robert Quinn wasn't the only player the Los Angeles Rams offered the Kansas City Chiefs in the Marcus Peters trade.

Google Lens Rolled Out To All Android Phones
Google has confirmed today that its Lens feature is now being rolled out to all Android smartphones with Google Photos installed. Lens was very much experimental and temperamental, but Google continues to make fixes and add more features.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity Wednesday because National Football League trades can't be announced until March 14. Adam Schefter reports the Rams are giving up a 7th and Ogletree, while the Giants are giving up a 4th and 6th round pick in this year's draft.

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 racked up 95 combined tackles, two sacks, 10 passes defensed, and a pick six.

Kirk Cousins between Jets and Vikings
Cousins is seen as the top option of them all when it comes to the possible quarterbacks for teams in need of a signal-caller. In them, Cousins has racked up almost 20,000 yards while completing 65.5 percent of his passes.

Despite their overall success last season under coach Sean McVay, the Rams clearly are reconfiguring their defense in Phillips' preferred image while clearing salary cap space. Ogletree was no longer a fit for the team's defense, and the Giants get the 26-year-old, along with the four-year deal he signed in October. Those moves likely mean top cornerback Trumaine Johnson will leave as a free agent. The deal is worth $42 million, with $33 million coming in the first three years of the deal.
