    The Los Angeles Rams announced Thursday they had agreed to terms on a four-year contract extension with inside linebacker Alec Ogletree, their leading tackler three of the past four seasons.

    "Alec has evolved into a true leader of our football team and we are excited to sign him to this extension," Rams general manager Les Snead said. "His teammates voted him as a captain in back-to-back seasons for a reason -- and it's not only because of his production, but his character and resiliency."

    Ogletree leads the team with 54 tackles. He was the team leader in the category in 2013, 2014 and 2016. His 2015 season was cut short after four games because of a broken fibula.

    Entering Thursday's play, Ogletree had the most "splash play" among NFL inside linebackers since 2014 with 28. A splash play is defined as a play where a batted pass, pass defensed, forced fumble or interception occurs.

    The Rams chose Ogletree in the first round of the 2013 draft out of Georgia, the 30th overall selection.
