The 6-foot-3, 252-pound Florida State University linebacker was undrafted in 2011 and signed with the Houston Texans, playing for two seasons (2011-12) racking up 12 tackles in 14 games. He spent his 2013 season with the Toronto Argonauts of the Canadian Football League and returned to the NFL last season on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' and Dallas Cowboys' practice squads.
The Cowboys released Alexander last month, so now, he will compete to be a valued Seahawk.
As a Seminole, Alexander started 14 games his final year, managing a single-season career-high 56 tackles and 5.5 tackles for loss, one forced fumble, two fumble recoveries and 1.5 sacks. His FSU bio reveals his parents named him Mister, using the acronym MR to stand for mentally ready.
Three Seahawks linebackers are set to become free agents on March 10—Malcolm Smith, Mike Morgan, and Heath Farwell.Read more... Join the Conversation...
