Alexander will take Foster's position as the 49ers' starting weak-side linebacker.

The San Francisco 49ers have reportedly come to an agreement with free agent linebacker Kwon Alexander on a four-year deal worth up to $54 million.

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.

Meanwhile, her husband Prince Harry opted for a navy suit and light pink tie as he walked hand-in-hand with his wife. This is hardly the first time Middleton's channeled a bygone era with her style.

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.
