Free agent wide receiver Danario Alexander worked out for the Bears on Tuesday, tweets Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune. Alexander remains unsigned, but he’s happy with how the workout went, per Gehlken. The 27-year-old is a candidate to sign a futures contract with the Bears, according to Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune (Twitter link).
Alexander is a three-year NFL veteran who suited up for the Rams from 2010-11 and the Chargers in ’12. In just 10 games that year, he amassed career highs in receptions (37), targets (62), yards (658), yards per catch (17.8) and touchdowns (seven). The former Missouri Tiger has appeared in 28 games and totaled 83 receptions, a 16.8 yards-per-catch average and 10 scores. Alexander tore the ACL in his right knee in August 2013 and hasn’t played since, but Gehlken notes that he’s now healthy. As Gehlken wrote in February 2014, Alexander’s initial recovery didn’t go smoothly and he required a second surgery. The 6-foot-5, 217-pounder has also had trouble with his left knee, undergoing five different operations.
