2019 Free Agent Profile: Kwon Alexander


Coming off a Pro Bowl season in 2017, Kwon Alexander was set to have a huge 2018 campaign. Unfortunately, he wound up only playing in six games due to a torn ACL mid-season. Alexander still had an impressive 2018 season, getting 45 tackles in his limited time.

In 2017, Alexander made his first Pro Bowl appearance after having a very well-rounded season. Alexander made 97 tackles, with seven for loss in just 12 games. He also chipped in a forced fumble, four passes defensed and three interceptions.

Alexander's best statistical season came in 2016, his second NFL year. He made 145 total tackles, 12 tackles for loss and three sacks, which helped him build a reputation as a pass-rushing inside linebacker. He also forced and recovered a fumble that year, along with getting seven passes defensed and an interception.
