The Green Bay Packers have given Pro-Bowl cornerback Jaire Alexander a four-year contract extension worth $84 million, Alexander's agent John Thornton confirmed to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

The deal is record setting, giving Alexander the highest average value per year for a cornerback at $21 million, and the 25-year-old will also receive $31 million in his first year of the extension.

Alexander injured his shoulder in Week 4 of the 2021 season and missed 13 games, though he was able to return for the Packers' loss to the 49ers in the NFL Playoffs.

In four games for the Packers in 2021 he recorded one interception, 13 combined tackles, nine of which were solo tackles and three deflected passes.
