Free agent defensive lineman Alex Carrington has found his new home, in St. Louis.

Carrington has agreed to a deal with the Rams, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

The 26-year-old Carrington has played his entire four-year NFL career with the Bills. Last year he started the first three games of the season but suffered a season-ending knee injury in Week Three.

Although Carrington hasn’t made a huge impact so far in his NFL career, he’s a good athlete at 6-foot-5 and 301 pounds who has plenty of potential and drew plenty of interest in free agency, with the Browns, Steelers and Raiders all reportedly extending him offers. The Rams got a player who could be a significant presence on their defensive line.

  1. Danny Woodhead, in focus. Subject of story, blurry figure in that back. Natural conclusion: guy must be a scrub.

  2. The front 7 of the Rams is downright scary. If they can add a good cb and safety they have top 5-10 potential as an overall defense.

  3. Carrington won’t be expected to start (Brockers/Langford), but should be a valuable 3rd DT that will get plenty of snaps. Quality depth signing by Snead.

  4. Health is a concern but when healthy is a solid player. Just could never stay healthy in buffalo and we really haven’t seen his true potential.

  5. fisher likes a rotation on d line carrington gives them one more in that rotation not playing every down will hopefully help him stay healthy and lessens the need to use a pick on a d lineman in the draft unless they get one who falls to a can’t pass him up spot on the board.

  6. There are not injury concerns, he was hurt one time in Buffalo that’s it. And He Had A Lot Of Flexibility In His game. He’s played DT, DE, OLB, and ILB. The guy will find his place in the Rams D and help them as a Damn good rotational player and maybe more. Good luck Alex from Bills Nation

  7. What a joke. He a starting spot basically sitting there for him to grab in Pittsburgh, but went for the backup role with the Rams instead because it probably pays a bit more.

  8. Reid, Carrington and possibly Britt. Everybody we are getting is cheap (great value) with huge upside. I am liking these additions prior to our 12 draft picks we will have. Given the past two drafts I am confident Snead and Fish will hit on at least a couple key additions to put us in playoff contention fighting for the NFC West.
