01:06 PM ET 02.27 | The Washington Redskins are trying to keep linebacker Lorenzo Alexander in the fold long-term, but so far the negotiations aren't going all that well. According to the Washington Examiner, the two sides are far apart on a deal with two weeks until the start of free agency on March 12. Alexander made the pro bowl last year thanks to his special teams work. The linebacker and special teams captain led the league in tackles on kickoffs and punts with 21 last season. If Alexander isn't retained, it will most likely be because of the Redskins salary cap situation. Washington is hurting in that department after being docked $36 million in cap space due to penalties in the NFL's eyes. Alexander did say a hometown discount is available per the Examiner:
