Green Bay Packers two-time Pro Bowl cornerback Jaire Alexander is many things. He is a phenomenal leader on the field and in the locker room. He is generous with his time engaging young fans. The Jaire Alexander Family Foundation works with kids and young adults to educate and help them lead a healthy lifestyle.
He also still works with The Boys and Girls Club of America, the organization where he first participated in sports. Alexander is also a college graduate, having completed his degree in Criminal Justice in the same year he was drafted by the Packers (2018).
And he is not afraid of or intimidated by anyone.
Green Bay Packers Cornerback Jaire Alexander Says No Wide Receiver Is too Tough for Him
Alexander is also well-known for his celebrations and trash talking. And it not limited to his opponents either. Last week, Alexander was reported to have let loose on Packers quarterback Jordan Love during a training camp practice session.
In a recent video posted by NFL Films on Instagram, Alexander was asked what wide receivers he found the toughest to cover. His answer, in a word, was “none.”

“Man, ain’t nobody, first of all, ain’t nobody tough that I feel is tough, because if a receiver beat me it’s probably something I did.”
When asked if there were any other cornerbacks on his level, he responded:
“Yeah, man, I really watch a lot of film on number 23 for Green Bay.”
That is, of course, himself.
The Packers need someone with an edge, with no fear, to lead them, especially on defense. Take a look at the last two Super Bowl winning teams in Green Bay. Reggie White was that in 1996. Charles Woodson was that in 2010. Not Brett Favre. Not Aaron Rodgers. A tough-as-nails, no-nonsense defensive player was the team’s emotional leader in each season.
Can Jaire Alexander be the next one for the Green Bay Packers? It appears he is well on his way.
