Los Angeles Rams sign LB Alec Ogletree to a 4-year, $42 million extension; $30 million guaranteed

The Los Angeles Rams and linebacker Alec Ogletree have agreed to a four-year, $42 million contract extension. Approximately $30 million of his contract is guaranteed, according to NFL Insider Ian Rapoport.

Ogletree was set to become a free agent at the end of the season, but is now extended through the 2021 season. He was considered one of the “must-signs” heading into the offseason, but now the Rams won’t be getting into a bidding war with other teams.

When healthy, Ogletree is one of the more consistent linebackers in the NFL. He has had his struggles adjusting to the 3-4 defense, but has improved in recent weeks. Ogletree so far has earned 26 tackles through five weeks. He has 330 tackles, 34 pass deflections, 11 forced fumbles, 5.5 sacks and 5 interceptions in five years with the Rams.

The Rams have so far given extensions to DL Ethan Westbrooks, P Johnny Hekker and now Ogletree. Despite all of the extensions, the Rams have failed to extend DT Aaron Donald’s contract. Still plenty of time left on his rookie contract.
