Former LSU defensive back Terrence Alexander signs NFL contract
Terrence Alexander may have only been on LSU’s roster for a year but he showed enough during his time with the Tigers to land on an NFL roster.
The New Orleans native began his college career at Stanford before transferring to LSU as a graduate this time last year. He appeared in all 13 games for the Tigers, making five starts during his senior campaign. He registered 23 tackles and three pass breakups for the Tigers, saving his best performance for the regular season finale when he had six tackles and a pass breakup against the Aggies.
His football career will now continue in Minnesota as the Vikings have signed Alexander as an undrafted free agent, according to Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press.
Now that he has made his way to a roster, Alexander will have to work to stick in Minnesota as NFL teams whittle down their rosters from 90 in the summer down to 53 in the regular season.
