BUFFALO, N. Y. (BUFFALO BILLS) – 

Bills agree to terms with LB Lorenzo Alexander

The Buffalo Bills today announced that the team has agreed to terms with LB Lorenzo Alexander.

Alexander earned his second career Pro Bowl nod for his exemplary play at outside linebacker during his first season with the Bills. Throughout the 2016 campaign, Alexander totaled 64 tackles, a team-high 12.5 sacks, 10 tackles for a loss, 22 QB hits, six passes defensed, one interception and three forced fumbles.

Alexander’s 12.5 sacks on the year rank as the most by a Bill in their first season with the team since Bryce Paup’s record 17.5 sacks in 1995. For his outstanding play in October, Alexander was named the AFC Defensive Player of the Month, becoming the first Bills linebacker to win the honor since Sam Cowart in 2000.
