Buffalo Bills’ free agent defensive lineman Alex Carrington has been on quite the tour.

Carrington visited several different NFL teams to check out their cities, facilities and visit with the coaching staff before making a decision. He’s looked at the Pittsburgh Steelers, Oakland Raiders, Cleveland Browns and St. Louis Rams.

On Tuesday, the 26-year old finally made his decision.

According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network and, Carrington will sign with the Rams.


The Rams need to improve their depth along the line so the signing makes sense for both sides.

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

In 2013, Carrington played in just three games after tearing his quad tendon.
