Alexander will take Foster's position as the 49ers' starting weak-side linebacker.
Alexander suffered a season-ending torn ACL in Week 7 against the Browns, leaving him with 45 tackles in six games in 2018. Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the deal includes $27 million in guarantees. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal can't be finalized until the new league year starts Wednesday. He tore his anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) on October 22, 2018.
Paul George furious with officiating after loss to the LA Clippers
It's a piece of s- being on that floor", George continued. " It's just bad officiating ", George said after the game. Even OKC coach Billy Donovan seemed to agree with Paul's statement. "To play without fouling is tough sometimes".
The Buccaneers made Alexander a fourth-round selection out of LSU in 2015.
Alexander's most productive season came in 2016 when he led the National Football League with 108 solo tackles and also had 12 tackles for loss.
However, that didn't keep him from making the Pro Bowl that season as he finished with 97 combined tackles and three interceptions, but another injury kept him from building on that campaign last fall.
