Alexander played for Jets HC Robert Saleh while they were together in San Francisco.

Alexander previously met with the Jets back in April.

Alexander, 27, is a former fourth-round pick of the Buccaneers back in 2015. He played out the final year of his four-year, $2,758,320 contract before agreeing to a four-year contract worth $54 million with the 49ers in 2019. 

He was traded to the Saints midseason in 2020 for LB Kiko Alonso and a conditional fifth-round pick. He tore his Achilles late in the season and was released back in March. However, he re-signed with the Saints in August on a one-year deal. 

In 2021, Alexander appeared in 12 games for the Saints, recording 50 total tackles, seven tackles for loss, 3.5 sacks, one forced fumble, one recovery, one interception and two pass deflections.
