Bills keep Lorenzo Alexander

Lorenzo Alexander spent a decade as a backup and special teams player before bursting onto the scene as a starting outside linebacker for the Bills last season and finishing with 12.5 sacks. And the Bills think he has another couple good years left in him.

Sal Capaccio of WGR 550 reports that the Bills and Alexander have agreed on a two-year contract.

Alexander turns 34 in May, and it remains to be seen whether he can have anything close to the production in 2017 he had in 2016. Generally speaking, a player who has an outlier performance in his 30s is much more likely to regress than to repeat that performance.

But the Bills like what they see from Alexander enough that they’re going to stick with him, and he’s back in the plans for 2017.

    The Bills and Whaley way overpaid for this one year wonder.
    No team gives a 34 YO LB nearly $9+MM over 2 years.
    No team except the “no playoffs in 17 years” Buffalo Bills.
    For my team its how they do business.
    Next Whaley wants to give the backup RB $4MM/YR.
    That will make him the richest backup RB in NFL history.
    Go Whaley go.
    Preferably far away, maybe become NE’s GM and destroy that team.
