(WTVO/WQRF) –The Packers are expected to make cornerback Jaire Alexander the highest paid defensive back in the NFL. According to multiple reports they will give Alexander a 4-year deal worth $84 million.
That comes out to an average of $21 million dollars a year. That tops the contract that Browns cornerback Denzel Ward signed earlier this spring.
Alexander gets the deal despite playing only four games last season due to a shoulder injury. In 2020 Alexander was an All-Pro.
