Bills' Lorenzo Alexander: Inks two-year extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alexander signed a two-year, $9 million contract extension with the Bills on Saturday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. He will earn $4.1 million in guaranteed salary.

Alexander expressed an interest in sticking around Buffalo, and now the 33-year-old has officially put pen to paper. The veteran outside linebacker racked up some massive totals out of nowhere last season, compiling 76 tackles (56 solo) and 12.5 sacks on the season in addition to two interceptions and three forced fumbles. It's unlikely he will repeat that production in 2017, but could enjoy more success than he had in the other six seasons of his career.

Bills' Lorenzo Alexander: Mulling over options
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alexander, who will be an unrestricted free agent in March, says he'd like to re-sign with the Bills but also wants to see what the new coaching staff looks like, BuffaloBills.com reports. "I would definitely love to be a Buffalo Bill next year," said the veteran. "Obviously we haven't talked about anything just yet. Everything is really fresh, but I will definitely weigh my options and see what happens. Coaching change, who's back, there's a lot that goes into it. So once my wife and I have all the facts and everything is laid out we'll make the decision that's best for our family."

Alexander is coming off a "where the heck did this come from?" season where he posted 76 tackles and 12.5 sacks, crazy considering the 33-year-old never had more than 2.5 in any of his previous nine NFL seasons. However, we believe this was a confluence of good fortune, as Alexander thrived in Rex Ryan's defense and the role he was perfectly suited for. With some younger Bills about to get more playing time and with Ryan ousted, Alexander's role will be different whether in Buffalo or any other NFL city. Don't overbid for him in IDP leagues next season.

Bills' Lorenzo Alexander: Ends season with another sack
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Alexander logged four tackles and a sack in Sunday's loss to the Jets, giving him 12.5 quarterback takedowns on the season, tied for third in the league.

No one saw this coming out of the 33-year-old veteran. Alexander's now an unrestricted free agent, so we'll see if the Bills try to bring him back. Due to his age, he may not be highly sought after by the rest of the league even with that eye-popping sack total, but he probably wouldn't reach that with the Bills again either, as an entirely new regime and defense will be taking over soon.

Bills' Lorenzo Alexander: Notches 1.5 sacks in Sunday victory
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Alexander posted 1.5 sacks and 10 tackles in Sunday's 33-13 victory over the Browns.

Despite rotating with Jerry Hughes and Shaq Lawson for two linebacker spots, Alexander continued his amazing season by snapping a four-game drought in which he failed to record a sack. He now has 11.5 sacks, three forced fumbles and an interception on the year, and he will be an upside IDP option for the rest of the fantasy playoffs, albeit less of one than he was during an incredible and unsustainable run the first half of the season.

Bills' Lorenzo Alexander: Part of rotation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alexander, who logged seven tackles and his first interception of the season last week, is expected to be part of a rotation with Jerry Hughes and Shaq Lawson for two spots, BuffaloBills.com reports.

That's not the end of the world for an overworked 33-year-old, but it does mean less snaps for Alexander the rest of the way. While he's been an amazing surprise IDP this season with 57 tackles and 10 sacks, he's slowed down lately with a four-game sackless streak heading into Sunday's game against the Browns. It may be time to look for other options, while if you're sticking with Alexander at least you'll get a matchup vs. a team that's given up a whopping 48 sacks to date.
