NFL | Alexander said he still wants to play

The Associated Press reports former NFL S Brent Alexander said he still wants to play in the NFL, even though his former team, the New York Giants, said that he has retired. Alexander's agent, Jim Solano, said his client was considering retirement when it became clear the Giants were going to release him. "I think when he said he was leaning toward retirement, they assumed he was going to retire," Solano said. "They just ran with it before he had a chance to talk to me. We're not upset about it. We're appreciative of the fact that they were good enough to make the change now, rather than have him go through offseason workouts and training camp before cutting him." Giants general manager Ernie Accorsi said Saturday, Feb. 25, at the NFL scouting combine that Alexander was retiring. The Giants cut Alexander three days later.
