Alex Carrington agrees to deal with Rams

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.

    Great addition. Maybe add stud outside backer in the moves down in draft.

    But he can’t stay healthy…

    Leaves the door open to draft Robinson the tackle, that all but negates a Clowney pick….

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    6-foot-5, 300 lbs.

    Wrap your head around that.

    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.

    Health concerns? Ha! he got injured ONCE here in guys got a solid player,and he blocks kicks also

    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

    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.

    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.
