As Meirov indicates, Ogletree is a nine-year NFL veteran and spent time with four different teams across the league.
The Los Angeles Rams took him with the 30th pick in the 2013 NFL Draft and was a member of their organization for five seasons.
He then took his talents to the New York Giants for two seasons before moving over to the New York Jets for the 2020 season.
However, Ogletree only played in two games for the Jets.
When Ogletree signed with the Bears, it was a positive sign for him, as he was able to play in 16 total games.
This was one of the best statistical seasons of his career, as he racked up 87 tackles, and had one forced fumble.
Ultimately, it appears that things didn’t work out with the Bears, considering he didn’t play for them in 2022.
Ogletree had some off-field issues, along with some injury concerns, both of which are likely factors in his early exit from the league.
He was well-liked on the teams that he played for and was linked to Robert Quinn, who he was able to play his final season with.
Ogletree’s final career statistics are 766 total tackles, 7.5 tackles, 13 forced fumbles, and 61 pass deflections.
He also had 12 interceptions and four total touchdowns throughout his nine-year career.NEXT: The Jets Are Desperate To End An Unfortunate Streak In 2023
