Jaire Alexander

Green Bay Packers cornerback Jaire Alexander said in an exclusive interview with the team’s official site that missing most of last season gave him a big dose of “perspective” in terms of his love for the game and that he is now eager to return to the field this Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings.

Alexander will be unleashing his “hound mentality” once again in the first game of the season. What does a dog do if you throw a piece of steak on the ground when it’s starving? “He attacks the steak and rips it to shreds,” Alexander boasted to Larry McCarren. This “hound mentality” is us actively seeking that steak. We’re famished; please bring us some steak, Larry.

Alexander’s 2021 season was cut short by a shoulder injury that kept him out of action for the final 13 games. He has always had a passion for the game, but his time away from the field due to injury has only served to strengthen that passion.

As Alexander put it, “sometimes perspective is needed.” While away, I found myself longing to once again don my helmet and pads, make plays, and hear the roar of the crowd.

Alexander will get his first crack at defending against one of the top receiving duos in the NFL, Justin Jefferson, and Adam Thielen, in Sunday’s season opener.

This will be a great test for the Packers’ defensive backs. In the secondary, Alexander said, “We’ve got a number of playmakers.” Alexander remarked that “consistency” is the key differentiator between average and elite players in the league. He’s set himself apart as an exceptional player through mental preparation and a relentless work ethic in the classroom and on the practice field.

I’m not doing this to be average, Alexander told Larry; he wanted to be the best. Alexander and the Packers will kick off what might be a historic season on Sunday in Minneapolis.

Career

Alexander’s fifth-year option was picked up by the Packers, guaranteeing him $13.3 million for the 2022 season. With a shoulder injury sustained in a Week 4 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers, Alexander was placed on injured reserve on October 9, 2021.

The Packers’ medical team decided against performing a season-ending surgery to fix the sprain, and after two months on injured reserve (IR), Alexander was scheduled to return to practice on December 8, 2021. On December 29th he was put into active duty. The Packers indefinitely benched Alexander on January 2, 2022, designating him for COVID-19/Reserve duty.

Despite being taken off the injured list on January 7, he was later reported to be unable to play in the Packers’ last regular season game against the Detroit Lions on January 9 due to a lack of conditioning. The Packers’ Divisional Playoff Game against the San Francisco 49ers was scheduled for Sunday, and he was listed as questionable to play. He saw some action but didn’t contribute statistically to the 10-13 defeat.
