Former Bill Alex Carrington returns for free agent visit

The Bills didn’t select any defensive linemen to provide depth for their talented starters during the NFL draft, but they may fill one of the roles on the depth chart with a player they drafted several years ago.

The Bills announced that defensive lineman Alex Carrington is visiting with the team. It probably won’t take him long to feel at home.

Carrington was a third-round pick by the Bills in 2010 and spent the first four years of his career in Buffalo before departing for St. Louis as a free agent last year. He had one tackle in eight games for the Rams and saw action in 44 games for the Bills in his time with the team. Carrington started his final three games with the team in 2013, but a torn quad ended his season and helped push him to another club as a free agent.

Carrington also showed a knack for blocking kicks during his time with the Bills and earned the nickname “Megahand” as a result. That skill could help him earn another shot at a roster spot in Buffalo.
