Lions' Maurice Alexander: Signs with Detroit
The Lions signed Alexander on Wednesday, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports.
Alexander hasn't played a down in the NFL since 2019, when he filled in at linebacker in Buffalo despite having played most of his career snaps before that as a safety. The Lions don't necessarily have a wealth of depth at linebacker behind Alex Anzalone and Julian Okwara, but even still, Alexander isn't likely to see many snaps this season even if he can crack Detroit's 53-man roster....

Seahawks' Maurice Alexander: Returns to practice
Alexander (hip) returned to practice Wednesday, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio KJR reports.
Alexander has been out of commission for over a week with a strained hip flexor. Now back in action, the 2014 fourth-rounder will jump right back into the competition for depth-chart slotting at safety. While he may not be a regular with the first-string defense quite yet, Alexander is a dark horse to claim one of the starting jobs before Week 1, especially given Earl Thomas' current holdout....
