Jaire Alexander intercepts Kirk Cousins

The Green Bay Packers have officially exercised the fifth-year option on star CB Jaire Alexander. The talented corner is now guaranteed to make $13.294 million in 2022.

OverTheCap values the 24-year old at $16,150,000 per year, making him a steal by at least $3 million. However, the cornerback market has been set significantly higher than that. L.A.’s Jalen Ramsey is set to count $23,200,000 against the 2022 cap. When the Packers negotiate a new long-term second contract with Alexander, it will likely be comparable money to Ramsey’s.

Jaire Alexander sacks Kirk Cousins for a safetyAlexander had an extraordinary 2020 season, posting the best PFF score in the league by a considerable margin ahead of Miami’s Xavien Howard and Denver’s Bryce Callahan. Although he only racked up a single interception, he was targeted a mere 80 times and allowed only 2 touchdowns and 41 completions. In a memorable moment early in the first game of the season, he also sacked Kirk Cousins for a safety.

He will now be joined by first-round pick Eric Stokes out of the University of Georgia, in what was already a talented backfield that included two top 10 safeties in Darnell Savage and Adrian Amos. Stokes will hopefully benefit from the opportunity to learn and practice alongside the budding young superstar.
