Dallas Cowboys[edit]

Ogletree was signed by the Dallas Cowboys as an undrafted free agent.[2] On September 6, 2009, after making an impression on the team in training camp and the preseason, Ogletree was rewarded with a spot on the 53-man roster. He spent the entire 2009 NFL season with Dallas, making seven receptions. He was inactive for most of the 2010 NFL season. When his chance finally came to play more, he injured his toe and was placed on Injured Reserve. In 2012 Ogletree secured the position of 3rd receiver. He ended the 2012 opener against New York Giants with 8 catches, 114 yards and 2 TD's, continuing the success of slot receiver production from Patrick Crayton, Miles Austin and Laurent Robinson.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers[edit]

Ogletree signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on March 13, 2013. After 4 games into the 2013 NFL season, the Buccaneers released Ogletree. Kevin had caught 8 passes for 70 yards and a touchdown for the Buccaneers. [3]

Detroit Lions[edit]

Ogletree signed with the Detroit Lions on October 2, 2013, following an injury to the Lions' Nate Burleson. According to Ogletree, "“Who doesn’t want to go play with Calvin Johnson and Matt Stafford and Reggie Bush? It’s a perfect opportunity."[4]

Since signing with the Detroit Lions he has recorded 6 receptions for 95 yards with one touchdown. The touchdown came from a great one handed catch during the Thanksgiving game against the Green Bay Packers.
