Alexander would provide speed and pass defense for a linebacker core which lacked, well, that. The Bengals linebackers were the league’s worst last year, with Nick Vigil being the highest ranked on the roster by Pro Football Focus, ranking 63rd in the league. Alexander is also only 25, meaning that a good stint with Cincinnati could allow him to stick around on the roster long term. A concern about Alexander is his ACL tear, which may allow the Bengals to get him at a discounted price. When on the field, Alexander is fantastic, and Cincinnati should be aggressive in negotiations with him.
