The Green Bay Packers and cornerback Jaire Alexander are finalizing a 4-year extension, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

The new deal for Alexander will pay an average of $21 million a year, setting a new benchmark for defensive backs in the league. (though Schefter says his base salary this year will be $1.076 million to get his cap number as low as possible this season). Additionally, Alexander will now be tied to Green Bay until the 2026 season.
