Alexander Allen Silvestro (born November 15, 1988) is an American football tight end for the Baltimore Ravens currently on the practice squad. As a defensive end, he was signed by the Patriots as an undrafted free agent in 2011. He played college football at Rutgers. On February 4, 2012, he was called up to replace Tiquan Underwood on the active roster of the New England Patriots, one day before Super Bowl XLVI. In November 2012, he was signed by the Baltimore Ravens to the practice squad.[1]

Prior to Rutgers, Silvestro played for Paulsboro High School in Paulsboro, New Jersey.[2] When he was a freshman, current Pittsburgh Steelers running back Isaac Redman was a senior.[3] The two still keep in touch when they visit home on breaks.[3]

In the 2012 OTAs and minicamp, Silvestro was forced into duty at tight end due to a shortage at that position of the roster.[4]
