The Green Bay Packers announced Tuesday that they’ve signed first-round CB Jaire Alexander to a four-year rookie contract.
This leaves just two unsigned draft picks for the Packers including:
|6||207||Equanimeous St. Brown||WR||Signed|
Alexander, 21, was taken with the No. 18 overall pick in this year’s NFL Draft by the Packers. According to OverTheCap.com, he receives a $12,092,586 contract that includes a $6,874,608 signing bonus.
The contract includes a fifth-year option for the Packers to pick up in 2021. It’s worth mentioning that the fifth-year option is only guaranteed for injury and won’t prevent the two parties from working on a long-term extension.
During his three-year college career at Louisville, Alexander recorded 77 total tackles, two tackles for loss, seven interceptions, 15 pass defenses, one fumble recovery, and one forced fumble.
