Hello, teammates! Welcome to another edition of The Morning After Huddle where we report on the “X’s”, the “O’s”, and everything in between. In the words of DJ Khaled, “major bag alert”! Jaire Alexander is living the dream this Tuesday, signing a major deal to stick around.
Here’s what you need to know:
- The Green Bay Packers made Jaire Alexander the league’s highest paid CB (in terms of annual average salary) on Monday, inking him to a four-year, $84M deal. The deal guarantees him $31M in year one and includes a roster bonus of $11.5M next March.
- The city of Buffalo is in mourning after an unspeakable tragedy unfolded over the weekend with several people passing away and many others hurt after a mass shooting that targeted residents of the area. Micah Hyde and other members of the Buffalo Bills organization have committed to helping the community heal, with Hyde donating a portion of the proceeds from a recent charity softball game to the families of the victims. Money from a silent auction at the game will also be donated.
- Your Key Signings RoundUp is brought to you by Melvin Ingram. Ingram will call South Beach home for the next year, having agreed to a one-year, $5M deal with the Miami Dolphins. Gregg Rosenthal’s Top 101 NFL free agents list had Ingram listed at No. 25 overall.
That’s it for today’s huddle. Catch us tomorrow as we bring you more top news you want to know.
