Lorenzo Alexander LB ARI 11 Months
The Cardinals are moving OLB Lorenzo Alexander to inside linebacker.
It never made sense to have Alexander on the outside in Arizona's 3-4 defense in the first place. He doesn't bring anything to the table as a pass rusher. At inside 'backer, Alexander will compete for playing time behind Daryl Washington and Kevin Minter. Alexander is an ace on special teams.

Cardinals OLB Lorenzo Alexander (Lisfranc) said he plans to participate in OTAs and minicamp.
Alexander tore his right Lisfranc tendon on Sept. 22, 2013. He'll likely be a limited participant in the offseason program and then ramp up his activity at training camp. If healthy, Alexander is an elite special teamer and quality depth at the outside 'backer spot.

Coach Bruce Arians suggested OLB Lorenzo Alexander's rehab from a right Lisfranc injury is not going smoothly.
Alexander, an elite special teamer and rotational linebacker, went down in September and still isn't right. "I'm a little concerned with Lorenzo's foot right now," Arians said at the Combine. "Hopefully it will show improvement." Alexander signed a three-year, $9.5 million contract that included $3 million guaranteed a year ago.

Cardinals placed WLB Lorenzo Alexander (Lisfranc) on injured reserve, ending his season.
The Cardinals are really missing the suspended Daryl Washington now. Alexander, an elite special teamer during his time in Washington, was playing a rotational role on the weak-side. He signed a three-year, $9.5 million contract that included $3 million guaranteed back in March. Washington is due back Week 5.

Cardinals WLB Lorenzo Alexander (biceps) is questionable for Week 2 against the Lions.

In an interview with Arizona Sports 620, Cardinals ILB Lorenzo Alexander is ready to play an every-down this season.

Newly signed ILB Lorenzo Alexander says the Cardinals have "pegged" him in a starting role.
Alexander has been an elite special teamer throughout his career and was recruited as such by teams like the 49ers. But the Cardinals can offer a chance to start next to beast Daryl Washington in addition to a core special teams role. "The Cardinals have already kind of pegged me in a starting role which is very exciting for me," Alexander said. "I'll be a linebacker that helps out on special teams instead of special teams being my bread and butter."

It's an underrated signing as Alexander is one of the league's premier special teamers. He can also help fill a need spot for the Cardinals next to dominant inside 'backer Daryl Washington. Alexander had 47 tackles and 2.5 sacks in spot duty for the Redskins last season.

FOX Sports' Alex Marvez reports free agents ILB Lorenzo Alexander and Josh Cribbs are "leaning toward" signing with the Cardinals.
The 49ers were at one point deemed the favorites for Cribbs, but things can change quickly in a hectic market. Alexander would probably not be a candidate to start in Arizona. He is one of the league's better special teamers.

FOXSports.com reports that free agent ILB Lorenzo Alexander is receiving interest from "multiple" teams with the Redskins looking unlikely to re-sign him.
The Redskins want to keep Alexander, but they're latest offers aren't going to be enough to prevent him from reaching the open market. A Pro Bowler on special teams in 2012, Alexander should be able to land a multi-year deal this offseason.
