Bills bring back Lorenzo Alexander on two-year deal

Lorenzo Alexander was signed last year to play special teams, and help provide depth at linebacker.

Now, he's an indispensable part of the Buffalo Bills' pass rush.

The 33-year-old journeyman is a journeyman no more, signing a two-year, $9 million deal to remain with the Bills.

The deal reportedly includes more than $4 million in guarantees.

Alexander had 9.5 sacks over the course of his career before racking up 12.5 in 2016, earning a trip to the Pro Bowl where he would take home the game's MVP award. He was one of many unrestricted free agents the Bills were hoping to re-sign, and is easily the highest profile of those who have remained in Buffalo.

Quarterback Tyrod Taylor reworked his contract to stay in Buffalo earlier in the week, but he was not an unrestricted free agent.

The Bills also signed right tackle Jordan Mills to a 2-year, $4 million deal.
