Deion Jones just got a little bit richer."

Kwon Alexander just reset the market for inside linebackers in the NFL. The former LSU man is heading to the San Francisco 49ers on a 4 year/$54 million deal William Perry Jerseys 2019 , including $27 million guaranteed.The contract makes Alexander the highest-paid inside linebacker in the NFL based on annual salary average ($13.5 million), surpassing Carolinaís Luke Kuechly ($12.4 million). Thatís very good news for Deion Jones, who is already working on a contract extension with the Falcons.Alexander and Jones each made the Pro Bowl in 2017 and each played in just six games in 2018, with Kwon registering more tackles for loss and QB hits over the past two seasons and Debo registering more tackles, interceptions and passes defensed.Jones has proven to be a superior linebacker to Alexander (Kwon had a better 2016, but the numbers skew in Deionís favor since then) White Brian Urlacher Jerseys , especially in coverage, and he will get paid as such when the extension does get worked out.Last season, Deion Jones was ranked the 14th best LB by PFF (among players who played at least 350 snaps) with a grade of 75.8, while Alexander was ranked the 58th best LB (among players who played at least 350 snaps) with a grade of 59.1.Itís the nature of the market ó a player up for extension will always demand to be paid the most at his position when his skillset is comparable to the elites at that position. Itís why Aaron Rodgers waited for Matt Ryanís extension to get done last season, and why Grady Jarrett is reportedly demanding ďAaron Donald moneyĒ right now. The 49ers did Atlanta no favors by making Kwon Alexander the (temporarily) highest-paid inside linebacker in the NFL.Thereís no way around it ó this Alexander deal sets a new floor for Jonesí extension, and now likely bumps his pay up from what it theoretically would have been a few days ago. When C.J. Mosley gets his next deal Brian Urlacher Jerseys 2019 , itís only going to get more expensive to keep Jones around. Itís official now, but the announcement comes on the same day the Bears start their offseason work out program." />Skip to main contentclockmenumore-arrownoyesHorizontal - WhiteWindy City GridironWindy City Gridiron - Being who you thought we were since 2005!Log In or Sign UpLog InSign UpFanpostsFanshotsSectionsBearsOddsAboutMastheadCo mmunity GuidelinesStubHubMoreAll 322 blogs on Horizontal - WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Latest NewsThe Bears DenNotesXs and OsSuperfansFiled under:Latest NewsNewsNotesBears announce ERFAs Isaiah Irving and Roy Robertson-Harris have re-signed New,18commentsItís official now, but the announcement comes on the same day the Bears start their offseason work out program. CDTShareTweetShareShareBears announce ERFAs Isaiah Irving and Roy Robertson-Harris have re-signed Photo by Hannah Foslien/Getty ImagesThe official announcement was just a formality as this was reported weeks ago, but earlier today the Chicago Bears re-signed exclusive rights free agents Isaiah Irving and Roy Robertson-Harris to standard one-year tender contracts. Both will be restricted free agents next season. Both also joined their teammates today at Halas Hall as the Bears started their voluntary work out program this morning. There were no reported no-shows for the work outs today. After playing in thirteen games last season, the 24-year old Irving will try to win a spot as a back up outside linebacker again in 2019. He had 6 tackles White Dick Butkus Jerseys , 1 sack, 3 quarterback hits, and 1 tackle for loss while playing on 118 defensive snaps (11%) last year. He was more active as a special teamer with 186 snaps (43.7%), and he made 2 tackles in the third phase. Robertson-Harris was a key member of the defensive line rotation and he played the third most snaps at the position last year, 353 (36%), and he also chipped in with 116 snaps (27.2%) on special teams. The 25-year old had 22 tackles Dick Butkus Jerseys 2019 , 3 TFL, 3 sacks, 11 QB hits, and 2 passes defended. In other offseason work out news, the San Francisco 49ers have a high profile no-show today as kicker Robbie Gould, who still hasnít signed his franchise tag tender White Mike Singletary Jerseys , did not voluntarily report.Gould is still home in Chicago, presumably still hoping for a Bears reunion. This is a situation worth monitoring, but the Bears do have three kickers under contract.
