Bills sign special teams guys Lorenzo Alexander, Colt Anderson


The Bills added a pair of experienced special teams contributors Tuesday.

They just hope one of them doesn’t contribute to their special teams the way he did for his last team.

The Bills announced deals for safety Colt Anderson and linebacker Lorenzo Alexander. They visited last week.

 Alexander is a former defensive tackle-turned-linebacker-turned special teams ace. He earned Pro Bowl honors in 2012 when he was with Washignton, and has also played with the Cardinals and Raiders since then. He came into the league with the Panthers in 2006 as a lineman, but unlike sports writers, got lighter as he got older.

Anderson spent the last two seasons with the Colts. He’s best remembered as the guy who was swarmed by the Patriots during the most ridiculous fake punt in recent memory.

Other than that play (which wasn’t necessarily his fault) he’s been a useful part with the Vikings and Eagles. So he’d probably prefer we remember that instead.
