The Buccaneers get set to head to New Orleans for their Sunday opener, and a guy that will be counted by their defense on is linebacker Kwon Alexander. Alexander is set to begin his fourth season patrolling the middle of Tampa Bay’s defense and is a player that they are counting on to help turnaround a 5-11 season in 2017.
And, with season getting underway this weekend, Alexander is part of the NFL’s promotion. He’s featured in a segment of the league’s “Sunday Ready” long form advertisements.
Alexander talks about his love for the game, but more importantly the inspirational story of him playing for his younger brother who was shot to death in 2015. Take a look:
"I feel like I'm unstoppable."

Alexander battled a hamstring strain at the beginning of last season that cost him four games. Still he registered 97 tackles and had three interceptions.
Along with fellow linebacker LaVonte David, Alexander looks to be the driving force in the middle for defensive coordinator Mike Smith’s gameplans every week.
And it’s promos like this one, that show his personality and his talent that all Bucs fans are anxious to see starting with him chasing around RB Alvin Kamara and his teammates this Sunday.
