  • Alexander was held out of practice Wednesday for rest, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports. Considering Alexander is 34 years old and just completed an active game (55 total snaps between defense and special teams) in hot weather, his day off seems easily merited. Alexander is off to another fine start to 2017 with 15 tackles and a sack through two contests.

  • Alexander recored 10 tackles (six solo) and one sack in Sunday's loss to the Panthers. Alexander looked like the 2016-version of himself on Sunday, as he reached double-digit tackles for just the second time in his career. His 43 defensive snaps almost doubled last week's total as well.

  • Bills' Lorenzo Alexander: Inks two-year extension
    By RotoWire Staff

    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 10 seasons of his career.

  • Bills' Lorenzo Alexander: Mulling over options
    By RotoWire Staff

    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.

  • 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 entire new regime and defense will be taking over soon.
