Linebacker Kwon Alexander‘s 2022 plans could include a reunion with Robert Saleh.

Saleh was the 49ers defensive coordinator when Alexander was on the team in 2019 and 2020. He is now the Jets head coach and Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Saleh’s current team is hosting Alexander on a Tuesday visit.

Alexander was traded to the Saints in November 2020 and he remained with the team through the end of the 2021 season. He started eight of 12 games last year and recorded 50 tackles, 3.5 sacks, an interception, a forced fumble, and a fumble recovery.

Alexander missed half his full season with the Niners due to a torn pectoral, but returned for their postseason run to Super Bowl LIV. He’s played seven NFL seasons overall and his first four came with the Buccaneers.

  1. Kwon is a dynamic player. He really goes sideline to sideline and brings it every play. Unfortunately this means he has been hurt a lot. With his talent it is a no brained for the Jets to sign him.

  2. Would love to see Kwon back in Black and Gold, as he really came on last year, but he may be too pricey as they continue to rebuild/restructure in the post Sean Payton era.

  3. I am friends with one of his cousins so I’m bias but I would think anyone would want him on their squad. Injuries really de railed what could have been an amazing career. He’s got all the tools

  4. Nneds to stay with the saints to be a part of an elite defense. The money will come.

    ===============

    And if he tears his ACL, shreds his knee, etc. and the money never comes? Take the money now. NFL owners are Kwon’s friend.
