Giants Release Linebackers Ogletree and Martin

NFL Trade deadline

The New York Giants have released Alec Ogletree and Kareem Martin. Both were linebackers who were signed in 2018 and remained on the team until after the 2019 season. Ogletree was a captain on the Giants’ team in 2019.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported the cuts via Twitter on Wednesday morning.

During his two years as a Giant, Ogletree played (and started) in 26 games of a possible 32. He had six interceptions total, with five of them coming in 2018. Those six picks matched his entire career total for his previous five seasons in the NFL. He also collected two sacks and 173 combined tackles in New York.

Kareem Martin, however, only played in 21 games with the giants while only starting in seven. He started no games in 2019, playing in only five due to a knee injury. Martin collected 1.5 sacks, 54 tackles and no picks.

The roster moves likely come due to salary cap reasons, but no official statement from the Giants has been released.
