Summary

Alexander was one of the biggest surprises in the 2016 season. The former special teams standout got a chance at regular playing time in Buffalo and finished the year with 12.5 sacks and a trip to the Pro Bowl. Pretty rare to see a huge breakout season at 33 years of age, and he decided to stay in Buffalo even though he doesn't have a clear fit in the team's new defensive scheme. He's expected to split time between playing defensive end in clear passing situations with outside linebacker on some early downs. His versatility should help keep him on the field, but it's likely a significant correction is coming in his sack total so consider him a DE3 at best. (June 5)
