News: Alexander signed with the Raiders on Wednesday, the team's official site reports.
Impact: Alexander played specials teams almost exclusively the last two seasons with the Cardinals, racking up 17 tackles (15 solo) and one sack in 19 games. While he was penciled in as the starting weak-side linebacker at the outset of training camp, he lost the spot over time to free-agent addition LaMarr Woodley and was jettisoned at the first cut-down date. With the Raiders, expect Alexander to be a mainstay on special teams, while acting as LB depth.
