The New York Giants have cut Alec Ogletree and Kareem Martin.
Ogletree, one of the league's highest-paid inside linebackers over the past two years at $10 million per season, became a liability in pass coverage and saw his playing time diminish.
Ogletree was one of Dave Gettleman's first major acquisitions for the Giants.
Ogletree played the first five years of his career with the Rams. He topped 100 tackles in three of his first four seasons. The second-team All Pro in 2016 has career totals of 674 tackles, 7.5 sacks, 12 forced fumbles and 12 interceptions. He also has four defensive touchdowns.
The Giants signed Martin to a three-year, $21 million contract one day after acquiring Ogletree in March 2018.
