Per ESPN’s Rob Demovsky, the Pro Bowl corner departed Titletown after the offseason program commenced. Alexander recently returned, but the time away means he’ll also be missing out on a $700,000 workout bonus.
Fortunately for the Packers, Alexander isn’t worried about it, per Demovsky.
For an extra $700,000, you’d think Jaire would just suck it up and deal with the crowd. But to each their own!
The Packers are coming off a disappointing season in which they finished 8-9 on the year, marking their first losing season since 2018. The club traded away star quarterback and four-time league MVP Aaron Rodgers to the New York Jets, thus signaling the beginning of a rebuild in Titletown.
Green Bay is moving forward with 2020 first-round pick Jordan Love, hoping the Utah State quarterback will make a smooth transition to the starting job, similar to what Rodgers did in 2008 following the Brett Favre Trade.
The Packers drafted the now-26-year-old Alexander 18th overall back in 2018. He has emerged as a mainstay in their secondary, earning two Pro Bowl as well as a pair of Second-Team All-Pro selections.
Through his first five NFL seasons, Alexander has 10 interceptions, 58 pass defenses, two forced fumbles and 244 combined tackles. He notched 14 pass defenses in 16 games a year ago, earning the second Pro Bowl nod of his career.
