Alexander officially signs extension with Packers

The Green Bay Packers have locked up its premier cornerback for next four years.

 

General Manager Brian Gutekunst announced Wednesday the organization's signing of Jaire Alexander to a four-year extension. PackersNews.com's Ryan Wood reports that the deal will pay Alexander $84 million over the four years with a record $30 million signing bonus. That makes Alexander the highest-paid cornerback in the year. 

 

Since being drafted by the Packers in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft, Alexander has posted 203 tackles (151 solo), seven tackles for a loss, 1½ sacks, five interceptions, 54 passes defensed, two forced fumbles, and a fumble recovery. A shoulder injury kept him out of much of the 2021 campaign.

Milwaukee could only manage five hits all night and Braves starter Tucker Davidson picked up his first win of the season, allowing only three hits in five innings. 

 

The Braves (17-20) and  Brewers (23-14) will play the rubber game of the three-game series Wednesday at American Family Field with first pitch set for 12:10 pm.

Soccer Round-Up: Clippers Soccer team edges Vikineers at Baileys Harbor on The Clipper

The Sturgeon Bay Clippers Girls Soccer team traveled to Baileys Harbor on Thursday night, and after a slight delay due to lightning in the area, the girls picked up the win.

 

It was an exciting first half, and the Sevastopol/Gibraltar Vikineers had opportunities in the first half, including a penalty kick after a foul occurred just inside the 18-yard box. The PK ended up going just high of the goal. After a few halftime adjustments, the Clippers came out strong in the second half and were able to grab the go-ahead goal in the 63rd minute. Emma Reichel had the game's only goal, which was enough for Clippers to leave Bailey's Harbor with the victory. Last night was Parent's night for the Vikineers. 

 

The next broadcast of Sturgeon Bay Clippers soccer is scheduled for Tuesday against Kiel. The Clippers will play against Xavier Friday night at 6:30 p.m. Playing in the Bay Conference, Xavier is 4-5-5 on the season.
