The season finished and not even three weeks later he’s already under contract. The timing of it shows the urgency.Before the Senior Bowl, before the Combine, before free agency, and before they really had to, the Bills inked Alexander and probably gave him a little more money than he would earn on the open market. (We’re not faulting them, by the way.) For comparison, Williams didn’t re-sign until the middle of March last year.Alexander played more than 60% of the team’s defensive snaps and more than 30% of the special teams snaps, too. He was a disruptive force on defense, forcing the most QB pressures from the LB spot in the league. It’s not like he’s performing at a low level Cole Beasley Jerseys 2019 , so the deal made sense.Add in a bunch of cap space and the departure of Williams, and it was a no-brainer.Now Alexander can continue helping the ultra-young LB corps of Tremaine Edmunds and Matt Milano become more seasoned pros while getting after the quarterback on a consistent basis.

According to Adam Schefter, the team hosted former Jacksonville Jaguars running back T.J. Yeldon on a visit today.Yeldon, 25, was a second-round choice of the Jaguars’ in the 2015 NFL Draft. After playing his college ball at Alabama, the Jaguars selected him to be their primary back White Robert Foster Jerseys , and he had a solid rookie season. In 2015, Yeldon ran 182 times for 740 and two touchdowns, all of which are career highs. Since the 2017 season, Yeldon has served as the primary backup to first-round pick Leonard Fournette. For his career, Yeldon has been efficient, averaging four yards per carry as a pro. He has 465 total carries for 1,872 yards. He has also shown himself to be a fine receiver out of the backfield, making 171 grabs for 1,302 yards and six touchdowns. Last season Robert Foster Jerseys 2019 , Yeldon excelled as a receiver, setting career highs in receptions (55), yards (487), and touchdowns (4). We discussed Yeldon as a possible target for Buffalo back in January, and his fit with the team is just as good now as it was then. As part of a backfield-by-committee, Yeldon would add youth, speed, and receiving ability to a veteran-laden group headed by LeSean McCoy and Frank Gore.
