Good morning, New York Giants fans!
“Do I look good?”
That was how linebacker Alec Ogletree answered a question on Monday about whether or not he had lost weight.
“I’ve been working hard, I kind of changed my diet a little bit and tried to eat a lot cleaner than what I was used to doing,” Ogletree said. “Also, still make sure I get the right meals in, the right work done.”
Entering his seventh NFL season, the 27-year-old Ogletree said he lost roughly 10 pounds.
“This game is a fast-paced game. The guys that they bring in now are not your 250s or 240s. They are 225 and 230 at the most playing linebacker,” Ogletree said. “You have to be able to move and cover ground at a fast speed and make plays. For me, still doing the same thing, if you get lighter, you can be a little bit faster than what you were. That’s my thinking behind that.”
Ogletree, dealing with a calf injury, said he would be ready for Week 1.
