Giants linebacker Alec Ogletree touched on a variety of topics during an interview Thursday on Sirius XM NFL Radio. Let’s take a look at some of what Ogletree discussed.
How shocked were you that you were on the move this offseason?
“I was very shocked,” Ogletree said. “You go from signing a deal with them and I didn’t expect it to come. I was there working out and got the call and they shipped me off. You got to take it all in stride because I appreciate the opportunity that they gave me to start my career off. But now I’m looking forward to getting started with the Giants and you know, doing great things there.”
What has been the biggest transition that you’ve had with the joining of a new team?
“Just trying to remember everybody’s name,” Ogletree said. “It’s still football at the end of the day, something that I love to do. I mean, of course you have to pick up a new scheme or new terminology and we do run a 3-4 so I did have some experience with that.”
What has it been like working around Odell Beckham Jr. and did you have to bury the hatchet when you got to the Giants or did that happen a while ago?
“It’s been buried,” Ogletree said. “I’ve seen him plenty of times before being traded to him and we never had no beef, just competition on the field. I respect his game and he respects my game.”
