Jaire Alexander had some words for a former Packers player
The Green Bay Packers came back down two scores in the fourth quarter to beat their NFC North rival, the Chicago Bears. The Bears’ offense was cooking in the early part of the game, with quarterback Justin Fields hitting his open wide receiver. Equanimeous St. Brown was the Bears leading wide receiver on the day. Jaire Alexander had some harsh words for the former Packers receiver after the game.
St. Brown finished with three receptions for 85 yards. St. Brown made a huge play in the second quarter, burning Alexander for a 56-yard reception.

Alexander was not happy with giving up the play. Bears running back David Montgomery would score a touchdown on the next play with a seven-yard scamper. According to Matt Schneidman with The Athletic, after the game, Alexander was asked what happened in the play. His comment was not nice toward his former teammate.
“Nothing. Man, he a scrub. I can’t believe I let him catch that on me. But hat’s off to him because he did make a good catch.”

Those are harsh words for St. Brown, who was the game’s leading receiver in total yards. Alexander made up for the mistake in the fourth quarter. He picked off a pass intended for St. Brown that put the Packers’ offense in position to put away the game.
