Alford spent the first six years of his career as an Atlanta Falcon. After being released by the Falcons, he was signed to a three-year, $22.5 million contract in 2019. Last season he was placed on injured reserve after breaking his leg before the season.
This injury marks two years in a row Alford will miss an entire season. Devon Kennard and Patrick Peterson will take the left and right cornerback roles in 2020.
