Jaguars 90 in 90: D.J. Alexander

NFL: Indianapolis Colts at Philadelphia Eagles Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

As we work our way through the summer in preparation for 2019 training camp and the 2019 preseason, we thought it would be a good idea to go down the roster and take a peak at every single player on the Jaguars 90 man. A lot of these players we already know, but roughly half of them won’t make the final roster and there will be some battles on the back end, so this can give us at least some precursory information on players we may not be familiar with.

Now you can look smart watching the preseason games with your friends when they say “Wow, who is that guy?!” — You’ll know.

Next up, linebacker D.J. Alexander.

D.J. Alexander, veteran, 27, Oregon State

Alexander was signed by the Jacksonville Jaguars on May 1, part of the curious slew of signings right before the public learned that Telvin Smith would be out for the 2019 NFL season. Alexander was a former fifth-round pick out of Oregon State for the Kansas City Chiefs making the Pro Bowl as a special teamer in 2016. He spent a season with the Seattle Seahawks and Philadelphia Eagles befre being signed with the Jaguars, as well.

On the surface, Alexander appears to be a signing to help bolster special teams, but the weakside linebacker position is wide open for whoever would like to win it.
