Rams linebacker Ogletree benefits from strong offseason

ST. LOUIS -- Rams linebacker Alec Ogletree still isn't satisfied. Ogletree recorded 18 tackles in the Rams' loss to the Redskins last Sunday. It is the most in a single game for the Rams since London Fletcher had 21 tackles in 2001. "Probably missed a couple of tackles, so I probably could have at least tied it," Ogletree said. That kind of honest self-assessment is why the Rams...

Rams LB Ogletree could be scary good in his second NFL season

ST. LOUIS -- Scary. That might be the best word to describe what linebacker Alec Ogletree is expected to accomplish in his second season with the Rams. After all, Ogletree led the team in tackles with 155 in 2013, 124 of which were solo. There was the 98-yard interception return for a touchdown against the Texans on Oct. 13 that was the longest return by a rookie in league history...

Could the Rams consider targeting a top free agent linebacker?

The Rams finally have shored up the outside linebacker position, which they had long neglected, by drafting Alec Ogletree in the first round last season. Ogletree improved as the season progressed and made enough big plays (six forced fumbles and a 98-yard interception return for a touchdown) to justify his sometimes lackluster pass coverage and occasional missed tackles. However...

Alec Ogletree is living up to Rams' high expectations

ST. LOUIS --Alec Ogletree can feel it, he says. Every time the Rams' talented rookie outside linebacker takes the field, whether it's the practice field in Earth City or NFL stadiums on Sundays, he gets a little more comfortable and a little bit better. It has all been a learning experience for the first-round pick from Georgia. There's no doubt about that. But Ogletree has shown...
