Texans released DE Alex Carrington.
Carrington was waived/injured, but the Texans proceeded to terminate his contract rights. Signed as depth last week, Carrington simply can't stay on the field. He'll have to prove he's healthy before getting yet another chance elsewhere. Tue, Aug 23, 2016 04:55:00 PM

Texans signed DE Alex Carrington.

Injuries have helped limit Carrington to just 18 appearances over the past three seasons. He's a depth piece with J.J. Watt (back surgery) rehabbing and Jadeveon Clowney struggling to stay on the practice field.

Bills DE Alex Carrington is done for the season after tearing his quad Week 12 against the Chiefs.

Carrington was forced into a starting role with Mario Williams out with a foot injury, but he played just 32 snaps before tearing his quad. An unrestricted free agent this offseason, Carrington will try to latch on somewhere as a versatile backup.

Bills signed DL Alex Carrington to a one-year contract.

Carrington returns to Buffalo, where he spent four years from 2010-13. After a failed year with the Rams, the versatile 27-year-old is back. The Bills were in the market for defensive line help after not selecting one in the draft.

Free agent DT Alex Carrington is visiting the Bills Monday.

Carrington played the five-technique spot for the Bills in 2013, the last of his four years with the team. Buffalo did not select a defensive lineman in the draft.
Mon, May 4, 2015 11:39:00 AM

Rams agreed to terms with DT Alex Carrington, formerly of the Bills, on a one-year contract.

A versatile lineman, Carrington was limited to three games and 171 snaps by a torn quad last season. He'll provide an interior presence in St. Louis, creating pressure between ends Robert Quinn and Chris Long. Three months shy of his 27th birthday, Carrington fortifies a Rams defensive line that needs more pass rush. Michael Brockers and Kendall Langford are run stoppers first.

Free agent DL Alex Carrington is visiting the Browns.

The Browns' interest in Carrington has been known since free agency opened, but the two sides are just getting around to the visit. Carrington has a connection with coach Mike Pettine and is capable of playing all along the defensive front.
Wed, Mar 19, 2014 05:19:00 PM

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports the Rams "remain interested" in free agent DT, but that the sides have yet to schedule a visit.

Carrington visited the Raiders on Sunday, and made a trip to Pittsburgh last week. The fact that Carrington has escaped two cities without deals is an indication his price needs to come down.
Tue, Mar 18, 2014 05:41:00 PM

Free agent DT Alex Carrington is visiting the Raiders on Sunday.

The Rams will be next on his visit list, assuming he gets out of Oakland. Carrington visited the Steelers late last week, and has also drawn interest from the Browns. The 27-year-old (in June) is an effective pass rusher when healthy.
Sun, Mar 16, 2014 06:06:00 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports free agent DL Alex Carrington had a good visit with the Steelers Thursday.

Nothing is imminent, but both sides will continue to talk. Carrington is an interior pocket-pusher that has the versatility to play all along the Steelers' defensive line. After missing most of 2013 with a torn quad, Carrington should come at a bargain as well. The Rams and Browns are also interested.
Fri, Mar 14, 2014 08:29:00 PM

Free agent DL Alex Carrington will visit the Steelers on Thursday night.

Carrington is also drawing interest from the Browns and Rams. The 26-year-old is scheme-versatile. At 6-foot-5, 301 pounds, Carrington has the ideal height to play end in the Steelers' 3-4. He's an interior pocket-pusher.
Thu, Mar 13, 2014 11:36:00 AM

Free agent DL Alex Carrington is drawing heavy interest from the Rams and Browns.

Coming off a torn quad, Carrington is one of the sleepers in this year's free agent class. He's capable of playing all over the line and can push the pocket from the interior. It's no surprise former Bills defensive coordinator Mike Pettine is trying to bring Carrington to Cleveland.
Wed, Mar 12, 2014 11:39:00 AM

The Bills are expected to let free agent DL Alex Carrington hit the market.

As a versatile down lineman who turns 27 in June, Carrington could be a value pickup for a savvy team. He missed most of last season with a torn quad, but was a highly efficient interior pass rusher in 2012 and can play both tackle and end. Perhaps new Browns coach Mike Pettine will pursue Carrington to rush the passer in sub-packages. Pettine was his defensive coordinator in Buffalo.

Bills placed LE Alex Carrington on injured reserve with a torn left quadriceps tendon, ending his season.

It's not a knee injury as originally reported, but the end result is as bad as imagined. Carrington had been playing heavy snaps as Buffalo's starting left end. The Bills have the most banged-up defense in football. Carrington, an impressive 26-year-old with D-Line versatility, is scheduled for free agency in 2014.
Mon, Sep 23, 2013 02:12:00 PM

Bills LE Alex Carrington was carted off the field late in Sunday's loss to the Jets with a left knee injury.

The extent is unknown, but the Bills also lost DT Marcell Dareus (ankle) during the game and have the most banged-up defense in football at the moment. They're playing the Ravens in Week 3. Carrington is Buffalo's starting left end.
