Alexander was the Rams’ starting strong safety in 2016, recording 50 tackles, two interceptions and four passes defensed in 14 games. He opened last season as a starter, but after starting the first four games of the season, he was inactive for Los Angeles’ Week 5 loss to Seattle, then was waived the following week.
Alexander’s signing is the second move this week to help the Seahawks at safety following the re-signing of Bradley McDougald earlier in the week, a player who started nine games last season.
