Free agent WR Danario Alexander's Tuesday workout was for the Jets.
The Jets are down a receiver after losing Devin Smith to a torn ACL, but Alexander's workout is probably more about a reserve/future pact after the season than helping in 2015. Tue, Dec 15, 2015 05:34:00 PM

Free agent WR Danario Alexander is working out for another team on Tuesday.

Alexander worked out for the Bears last week. Out of the league since tearing his ACL in the summer of 2013, Alexander is likely working out with an eye toward nabbing a reserve/future contract in January.

Free agent WR Danario Alexander worked out for the Bears on Tuesday.

According to the Chicago Tribune, Alexander could be a candidate for a reserve/future contract after the season. Alexander says he ran a 4.5 40-yard dash at Tuesday's workout. Now 27, Alexander hasn't appeared in a game since 2012 due to ongoing issues with both knees.

The Union-Tribune San Diego reports free agent WR Danario Alexander is trying to make a comeback.

Alexander has been out of the league since tearing his ACL in the summer of 2013. Per reporter Michael Gehlken, he's working out for a team on Tuesday, but it's not the Chargers. Alexander has prodigious natural playmaking ability, but his career has been derailed by multiple serious injuries to both knees. Now 27, Alexander has averaged 16.8 yards on 83 career catches.

A source tells FOX Sports that free agent Danario Alexander is dealing with major complications from his latest knee surgery.

Alexander initially underwent an ACL repair on his right knee back in August and then needed a second "revision" surgery in January. Now he's had even more surgeries because of an infection, leaving his ability to play in 2014 in major doubt. Alexander's left knee was already in questionable shape due to five earlier surgeries. Although he's just 25 years old, his career is in jeopardy -- a shame for a player that posted 1,781 yards as a senior at Missouri and showed difference-making NFL ability as Philip Rivers' No. 1 receiver for a rare healthy stretch of the 2012 season.

The Chargers aren't expected to re-sign free agent Danario Alexander.

Beat writer Michael Gehlken puts the chances Alexander re-ups with the Bolts at "very low." DX has had seven knee surgeries -- five on his left -- and may never play again. Alexander's talent is undeniable when he's healthy, but unfortunately he's been unable to stay on the field. He might get a one-year deal.

Free agent Danario Alexander underwent a second surgery on his torn right ACL in January.

Alexander tore the ACL on August 6 and had surgery on August 15. Per the Union-Tribune San Diego, Alexander's latest procedure was a "revision ACL surgery" performed as a "followup," and may make him "unavailable" for the start of 2014 training camp. Sources say "DX" still hopes to play next season, though he's considered "unlikely" to be re-signed by the Chargers. Alexander has now undergone two right knee surgeries and a whopping five operations on his left knee stemming from recurring college injuries. His career is in obvious doubt.

Chargers waived/injured WR Danario Alexander.

Alexander tore his right ACL on August 6 and had reconstructive surgery on August 15. The quickness with which the procedure was performed suggests DX's ACL tear was clean and affected no other ligaments. It will be interesting to see whether any team takes a flier on him via the waiver process. To do so, they'd have to pay Alexander's full $1.323 million salary for a lost year. Alexander is a free agent in 2014, so we suspect he won't be claimed.

Danario Alexander (torn right ACL) underwent successful surgery Thursday.

The Union-Tribune San Diego expects DX to be waived/injured in the near future. That means he'll have to pass through waivers before landing on injured reserve. Alexander's $1.23 million salary and daunting injury history should ensure he goes unclaimed.
Fri, Aug 16, 2013 08:35:00 AM

Danario Alexander has been diagnosed with a torn right ACL, and is done for the season.

Brutal. The news is especially devastating for the brittle fourth-year pro because it's Alexander's left knee that had previously given him so much trouble. DX has undergone five left-knee operations since his sophomore year of college. Now with major injuries to both knees, it's fair to wonder if the gifted 6-foot-5 wideout will play again. Alexander was one of the major developments of the 2012 fantasy season, erupting for 34 catches, 597 yards and seven touchdowns over his final eight games. His injury locks in Malcom Floyd and Vincent Brown as projected starters, although Brown needs to stay off the shelf. Eddie Royal is San Diego's top slot receiver. Rookie Keenan Allen has had a quiet camp. It's going to be another long year for Philip Rivers.

Danario Alexander tweaked his right knee in Tuesday's practice.

We typically avoid posting about training camp injuries before it's clear they're a concern, but any knee ailment is a concern for the famously-brittle DX. It's Alexander's left knee that's given him the most trouble — aka, five surgeries — but it's still not a positive development. It's quite possible today's news won't amount to anything, but it serves as a timely reminder of Alexander's inability to stay healthy.
Tue, Aug 6, 2013 02:49:00 PM

Chargers WR Danario Alexander is hoping to play all 16 games this season.

Alexander has a long history of knee injuries and has yet to put together a full season, but is expected to be the Chargers' No. 1 receiver when healthy. "Prehabbing so I’m not rehabbing," Alexander said. "I’m just trying to take advantage of every rep, play this game until the wheels fall off. I’m not going to make any predictions, but I’m feeling confident."
Fri, Jul 26, 2013 11:33:00 AM

New coach Mike McCoy reiterated that the Chargers are going to scale back Philip Rivers' vertical passing.

Rivers has proven he's no longer capable of executing the vertical scheme Norv Turner left behind. "We got to get him going back to the basics," McCoy said. "Take what the defense gives you. Don't be afraid to check it down. You don't have to make that big play every play." The Chargers want the ball out of Rivers' hand quickly, thus hiding their woeful offensive line and raising his completion percentage. It's not an ideal scheme for a guy like Danario Alexander, who excels at making big plays downfield. We'd also downgrade Malcom Floyd.

Chargers re-signed restricted free agent Danario Alexander to a one-year, $1.323 million contract.

Alexander drew scant interest in free agency, but teams weren't willing to commit major dollars to a receiver that has undergone multiple knee surgeries. Alexander will almost certainly be a starter in San Diego. Vincent Brown should give Malcom Floyd a run for his money on the opposite side.
Thu, Apr 25, 2013 03:24:00 PM

Restricted free agent Danario Alexander did not sign an offer sheet with another team prior to Friday night's deadline.

The Chargers gambled by tendering Alexander at the lowest level where they would have received no compensation, but it paid off. "Two to three teams" reportedly poked around DX, but the Chargers were going to match any reasonable offer. It wouldn't have made sense for another team to commit major dollars to Alexander's troublesome knees. He has yet to sign his Chargers' tender, but Alexander will be back to form a solid trio at receiver with Malcom Floyd and Vincent Brown.
