Alexander, 26, 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.
Alexander returned to the Saints in August on a one-year contract worth up to $3 million.
In 2021, Kwon Alexander has appeared in 10 games for the Saints and recorded 39 tackles, three sacks, an interception and two pass deflections.
