NFL Rumors: St. Louis Rams 'remain interested' in Alex Carrington


Buffalo Bills’ free agent defensive lineman Alex Carrington has been a hot topic during free agency.

The Pittsburgh Steelers brought the 26-year old in for a visit last week and he had a meeting with the Oakland Raiders over the weekend.

The Cleveland Browns and are also rumored to be interested in Carrington.

According to Jim Thomas of The St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the St. Louis Rams are still interested in signing Carrington.

 

Carrington was scheduled to visit the Rams on Monday, but according to Thomas, he has not been to St. Louis.

Carrington was originally selected by the Bills with the 72nd overall pick in the third round of the 2010 NFL Draft.

The former Arkansas State star appeared in nine games as a rookie, totaling eight tackles and one sack.

He appeared in all 32 games in both 2011 and 2012, providing valuable depth for the Bills.

Last season, he played in just three games after tearing his quad tendon.

    Still waiting for Rams to sign someone. It is now official, they lead the league in visits. Snead and Fischer have squandered a chance to improve the club by sitting on their hands. The remainder of the free agents available are journeymen and castoffs, if that’s what Fischer wants we can look forward to another 7-9 season or worse.

      joseph i couldn’t disagree more the money grab is not what the rams need to get involved in last year people screamed how we spent too much for FAs now when they exercise fiscal restraint they are again criticized you can’t have it both ways. kenny britt? coming of surgery tj ward and others were way too pricey!! we do not need warm bodies we need players thet can fill a role and with the draft coming in may they need money to sign their picks and stay under the cap if the rams sign one quality FA at a fair price along with the re signing of jo lonn and saffold make this off season a plus!!

        Hey Gary. I have a question for you. What is your opinion on Tavon Austin?

        • Gary Stewart

          good question erik i think the fans expected too much and the team expected too little of tavon, then a qb change messed up things as well as his late season injury i really like tavon although last year i would have been happy if we just used our #16 and not given up the extra pick but im not unhappy my guess is tavon will have a good year in 2014 like 60 for 850 with 5 tds and in the return game a couple more tds and another 300-400 yards

            So let me ask you this as a hypothetical. If you had three first rounders in 2015, would you trade him and a late first in ’15 for Vincent Jackson?
