Packers sign CB Jaire Alexander

  GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — The Green Bay Packers have signed first-round draft pick Jaire Alexander, a cornerback from Louisville.
   Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst announced the deal Tuesday.
   The Packers selected Alexander last month with the 18th overall pick . Alexander had a team-high five interceptions as a sophomore in 2016 before a knee injury limited him to six games last season. He also was a kick returner at Louisville.
   Green Bay is hoping the additions of Alexander and second-round pick Josh Jackson of Iowa can boost a secondary that has been hit hard by injuries. The Packers allowed 30 touchdown passes last season, tied for the second-highest total of any team .
