Alexander to Jaguars

RB Shaun Alexander

Rumor is Seattle is willing to trade runningback Shaun Alexander to Jacksonville in exchange for a 3rd round pick. Problem is that Jacksonville does not want to give Alexander the big new contract he has demanded from Seattle. Alexander was going to be an unrestricted free agent before the Seahawks placed the franchise tag on him.

This deal doesn't make a lot of sense for Jacksonville, with Fred Taylor still on the roster. Why pay starters money to 2 runningbacks? Unless Jacksonville can trade Fred Taylor this deal doesn't make a lot of sense.
