The 25-year-old Alexander was the Chiefs fifth-round pick in the 2015 NFL Draft. He is coming off of his first Pro Bowl season.

He spent two seasons with the Chiefs. Alexander was a special team’s selection for the Pro Bowl.

Last season, in 16 games, he made one start. He had 16 tackles and a forced fumble.

In his rookie campaign in 2015, he appeared in 16 games. He had 13 tackles and a safety.

Pierre-Louis spent the past three seasons with the Seahawks. He is also 25-years-old — and was a fourth-round pick by the team in the 2014 NFL Draft.

He appeared in 13 games last season. Pierre-Louis had 12 tackles.

The outside linebacker had 21 appearances in his first two seasons. In those campaigns, he had 31 combined tackles and a pass deflection.
