The 6-foot-4, 270-pound Alexander has a great combination of size,Cheap World Cup Jerseys, speed and power, but has only 3 1-2 sacks in three seasons. He only played in one game last season because of the suspensions.

"When you put yourself in this position, you got to gain the trust back," Alexander said. "When you mess up, you got to gain the trust back."
Rivera said he talks with Alexander every day, taking a personal interest in what is happening in his life. He tries to show Alexander that he believes in him, that's he's counting on him and he there's to support him.
Alexander has been working hard to do just that.
"Most guys don't get the (second chance) that I have, so I'm thankful for that," Alexander said.
