Anyone who’s followed Kwon Alexander on Twitter knows he has one massive chip on his shoulder. He’s always talking about the work he’s putting on, motivation, and how no one ever respects him.
Hey, good for him, right? It gets kind of hilarious when he does that to NFL writers who snub him, though. Case in point:
@HarrisonNFL @gregauman @HotRod256 yea! Why no Kwon you tell me what I'm doing wrong sir!?— Kwon Alexander (@Showtime17Kwon) March 22, 2017
That’s about Elliott Harrison’s All-Under-25 team over at NFL.com, which features quarterback Jameis Winston, right guard Ali Marpet and wide receiver Mike Evans as Bucs representatives, but no Kwon Alexander.
That is kind of a snub, given Alexander’s quality play the past couple of years. But, to be fair, Shane Ray, Bernardrick McKinney and Deion Jones are pretty impressive, too. It’s a snub, to be sure, but not a huge one.
Still, keep playing with that chip on your shoulder, Kwon. It hasn’t hurt you so far. Keep playing with it right into the All-Pro lists, and beyond.
