All-Pro cornerback Jaire Alexander still has three years remaining on his contract. He isn't going anywhere. Injury has limited Alexander to only five games this season, but he is still one of the best in the league when healthy.
After trading Rasul Douglas, cornerback is likely an offseason need for Green Bay, making it all the more important for Alexander to lead the way.
Hopefully, Alexander can get healthy to help the Packers make a potential playoff push down in the final weeks of the regular season.
Green Bay traded Douglas and has missed Alexander and Eric Stokes due to injury for most of the season. That's a recipe for disaster, but the play of seventh-round rookie Carrington Valentine has helped fill the void.
Valentine was one of the Packers' standout performers during training camp, and he has taken that production into the regular season. According to Pro Football Reference, Valentine has allowed a completion percentage of only 45.9 and a passer rating of 66.0 in his coverage. The rookie has not given up a touchdown and has broken up eight passes.
The Packers appear to have hit a home run by drafting Valentine in the seventh round back in April.
