While awaiting a final decision from quarterback Aaron Rodgers, the Green Bay Packers have also begun negotiating a new contract with one of the team’s best defensive players.
US time on Sunday, according to reporters, the Green Bay Packers and head cornerback Jaire Alexander restarted contract negotiations. “Contract extensions are usually done in the spring or into the summer.” The report said, “But he (Jaire Alexander) is indeed one of the players that the Green Bay Packers must keep.”
The 2022 season is the final year of Jaire Alexander’s rookie contract, with a salary of $13.3 million. A first-round pick in 2018, Jaire Alexander was selected to the Pro Bowl and All-NBA Second Team in 2020. But in 2021, a shoulder injury kept Jaire Alexander out for most of the season, and he ended up playing only five games.
If Jaire Alexander is successful, his final salary should be within the top five at the same position, between Darius Slay’s $16.7 million and Jalen Ramsey’s $20 million.
