Details: The contract is worth $84 million over four years and includes a $30 million signing bonus.
- The deal’s average annual value of $21 million ranks first among the league’s cornerbacks.
Profile: Alexander, 25, was limited to four games last season due to a shoulder injury. In 2020, he totaled 51 tackles, 1 interception, and 13 passes defended — good for an elite 90.5 PFF grade.
GB Corner Depth: Alexander leads a corner group that features 2021 first-rounder Eric Stokes (66.3 PFF grade) and Rasul Douglas (74.8 PFF grade).
More Cap Space: The extension is structured to create significant 2022 cap relief for the Packers, which will enhance their ability to add a free agent receiver — if they so choose.
- Ian Rapoport linked Odell Beckham Jr. and Julio Jones to the Packers last week.
