Could Danario Alexander Replace Boldin?

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The 6'5" Wide Receiver from the Chargers could come for cheap, but would it be worth it?

Danario Alexander, a 6’5" 217 lb WR, has received an original round tender from the San Diego Chargers which doesn’t mean anything at all. Alexander went undrafted in the 2010 draft and was signed by the St. Louis Rams. According to his Wikipedia page, as a senior, he started all 13 games, and finished with 113 receptions for an NCAA best 1,781 yards and 14 touchdowns. Since Alexander was undrafted being given an original round tender simply means that the Ravens could offer him a contract and the Chargers could choose to either match it or let him walk.

Alexander has battled injury with 10 games played being the most he’s played in his short three year career. He’s four inches taller than Anquan Boldin and only a few pounds lighter. If we could offer him a contract for a low price and the Chargers don’t match would it be worth it for a player once considered a mid-round talent? He dropped because of surgery he had on his knee but for the right price I could see taking a chance on him. The only negative I could see out of this is it may affect our compensatory picks for next year as it seems Ozzie has been targeting players who were cut by their previous teams. Only time will tell but given his senior season at Missouri it’s obvious the kid has some talent!
