Adds a former Pro-Bowler
Kwon Alexander is not just your average middle linebacker.
Would you believe me if I told you there was a time in Alexander’s career where he had a season of over 100 tackles? That would be an average of almost seven solo tackles per game — not to mention the 37 other assisted tackles.
What if I was to tell you that in two separate seasons, Alexander had two or more interceptions. If I asked you the former, you would tell me he is a stud linebacker. If I asked you the latter, you would tell me he is a mediocre cornerback or safety.
Well, that’s just how talented Kwon Alexander actually is. He also adds one Pro-Bowl to his resume when he was with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2017. He is an immensely talented linebacker that will help the Saints that much.
He is coming onto a roster where there is no linebacker employed that has ever won a Pro-Bowl selection. Now, Davis has been a first-team All-Pro selection, which is arguably better, but he does not have a Pro-Bowl selection.
