Bills re-sign Alex Carrington to 1-Year Deal

Alex Carrington has rejoined the Buffalo Bills. In 2015, Carrington has a chance to contribute as a defensive end and on special teams.

A familiar face is rejoining the Buffalo Bills.

Alex Carrington, Buffalo's third round pick in the 2010 NFL draft, has signed a one-year deal with the team. Carrington previously played in Buffalo from 2010-2013. Ian Rapoport of NFL.com was the first to announce that a deal had been made.

Carrington gives the Bills a 5-technique defensive end for their 3-4 defense. Carrington had won the starting job as Buffalo's defensive end in 2013 before suffering a torn quad tendon in Week 3. He was placed on the injured reserve and signed with the St. Louis Rams in 2014. Now back in Buffalo, Carrington has a chance to compete for a starting job along the defensive line. 

The defensive end can also come in and contribute on special teams. Carrington earned the nickname "Megahand" after blocking three field goals and an extra point back in 2012.
