Bills give Danario Alexander a workout

Adam Caplan reports that the Buffalo Bills tried out free agent wide receiver Danario Alexander on Monday.

Per Caplan, Alexander is fully recovered from the hamstring injury that plagued him throughout Rams OTAs and training camp.

The Rams waived Alexander with an injury settlement on August 29.

Though blessed with freakish tools, injuries have been an insurmountable obstacle in Alexander’s three-year NFL career. A balky left knee torpedoed his stock before the 2010 NFL draft, and he couldn’t stay on the field in parts of two seasons with St. Louis.

Still only 24 and apparently healthy now, Alexander could be a worthwhile flier signing for a team with enough 53-man roster space to carry him for a bit, while Alexander learns the offense. He does not have practice squad eligibility, however.

Alexander has 46 career receptions for 737 yards and three touchdowns, averaging 16.0 yards a catch.

    Sign him, he is one hit or mis-step from blowing out a knee and his injuries need constant maintenance but he is well worth the risk. The Rams just could not afford to keep him during a makor rebuild.

    The bills can use the receiver help after losing David Nelson for the season.

    the kid is a class act and a freak athlete (had he not blown his knee at Mizzou, Jeremy Maclin may not have seen the field until his senior year). Good luck to him. I wish we could’ve seen him healthy in the NFL

    We have our own injury prone version of him called Marcus Easley on our practice squad; I’d rather have him over Stallworth, though.

    I would sign him. There are a couple players I can name to make room for him.

    Martin and Thigpen are top on the list.
