Good News: Super bowl Winner Free Agent Star Name Green Bay Packers As His Preferred Destination

Packers Eyeing Former $54 Million Free Agent Linebacker


The Green Bay Packers might still make some roster additions before training camp, with veteran linebacker Kwon Alexander emerging as a potential target.

Kristopher Knox from Bleacher Report highlighted Alexander as a bargain-free agent and identified possible teams for him, including the Packers.

Knox suggested that Alexander’s injury history and age could make him an affordable option for Green Bay. He noted, “The Green Bay Packers could also use Alexander’s services after parting with linebacker De’Vondre Campbell early in the offseason. In Green Bay, Alexander could help mentor rookie second-round pick Edgerrin Cooper.”

While not a high-profile move, signing Alexander could provide the Packers with valuable linebacker depth.

Kwon Alexander’s NFL Journey


Once seen as a future NFL star, injuries have impacted Alexander’s career, but he remains a productive player. Drafted in the fourth round out of LSU in 2015, Alexander quickly became a starter for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He led the NFL with 108 solo tackles in his second season and made the Pro Bowl in 2017.

The San Francisco 49ers signed Alexander to a four-year, $54 million deal in 2019, despite his previous ACL tear. However, his success in San Francisco was limited, leading to a trade to the New Orleans Saints in 2020. Alexander has since played for multiple teams, struggling with injuries, including a recent torn Achilles. He will turn 30 in August.

Despite his health issues, Alexander could still bring veteran leadership to a younger team like the Packers.

Packers’ Linebacker Depth


For the first time in years, the Packers’ linebacker position looks promising. Quay Walker, a former first-round pick, has shown potential in his two seasons. New defensive coordinator Jeff Hafley’s scheme might further enhance Walker’s performance in 2024.

Isaiah McDuffie had a career-best season in 2023 with 86 total tackles. The Packers also drafted two linebackers this year: Edgerrin Cooper, who is expected to have a significant rookie year, and Ty’Ron Hopper, who could contribute in a rotational role. Veteran Eric Wilson will likely continue to play a key role on special teams.

With this depth, the Packers may not need to sign a free agent like Alexander, but his addition could still be beneficial.
